What is the most unreliable make or model of car ever made?
I give you...the TRIUMPH of socialism, the East German Legend, the TRABANT! Trabant - Wikipedia I wonder if Bernie drives one? But of course, that wasn't REAL socialism. REAL socialism has never really been tried. Alex.
Any BMW with over 75k miles.
Don't you DARE fukkin disrespect the genius of a 3 cylinder, plywood car! DON'T YOU DARE!!!! You can rent them in Berlin. Anyone with money wants a vintage one now. Personally, I remember watching them on the East German border and in East Berlin... on the border, on ANY kind of incline, passengers would have to get out and help it up the hill. In East Berlin, I never saw one back out of a parking spot, you had to push it back, then drive away. PS Bernie would ride in a ZIL, because even in the Soviet Union, communism was for the people, not the communist!
Land Rover. Just like a boat, expect to pay 10% of its cost for annual maintenance.
Ford Pinto. I had one right after high school. Thankfully I never got hit from behind and consumed in a fiery explosion. *Notice I didn’t say “rear-ended.” Didn’t want to leave a softball for any of you degenerates to tee off on
I’ve owned most of them and they were all British. I also owned a Jeep Wrangler that spent a lot of time in the shop for things that shouldn’t have been happening. But anything with Lucas Electronics takes the cake. My two Triumphs were loaded with Lucas crap.
My FIL had an AMC Hornet that he and Mrs G. tell some hilarious stories about. Sounded like and incredible hunk of junk.
1973 Plymouth Scamp
Don't remember much about the car. But I did take my HS sweetheart's virginity in one. Best 5 seconds of high school.
That car looks decidedly Yugoslavian through my rear view mirror.
MY two best friends in HS. One had a pinto and the other bought a new Chevy Vega. Needless to say they had different cars soon after. My brother had two pintos and learned how to work on them, Youngest brother called from Ft. Benning saying he wasnt coming home for Christmas. He was always home for Christmas so Mike, his wife and i climbed into his 71 pinto and drove to Columbus Ga. me in the back and there aint much back to a pinto. The Gville Sun printed my story about it year a few years ago.
What is the most dangerous thing in the world? Leon Spinks driving a Ford Pinto on Firestone 721 tires. If you get the references welcome to Medicare. Be sure to take Parts B, C, E, W and Z
Truth. My TR-7 would’ve been a lot more fun without the Lucas electronics.
How could y'all not include the Yugo? I worked in a Food Processing plant in 1987. A worker had one in the parking lot near a loading dock. A dock worker was moving pallets with a forklift and caught the bumper...It tore the bumper off . It cost so much just to fix the bumper and a new one was so cheap...Insurance TOTALED the Yugo. Their was no way I would want to be in an accident in that car.
Chrysler Volare; 225 6 cyl with real corynthian leather. I bought one in 1976 for work, 25 of its first 90 days were in the shop. Stalled out at any speed less than 15 mph and only got 9 mpg. School zones, turning, traffic lights and stop signs even pulling into the driveway were hazardous situations. With less than 3500 miles, Chrysler walked away from their warrantee. I will never buy another Chrysler product! Our 2009 all wheel drive Caddy CTS4 was probably worse, An expensive mistake, one month out of warrantee the transmission and transfer case when out, followed that two sensors and harnesses needed replacement; then a massive electronic failure all in the same year. It never ran right after that, sold it to a mechanic and bought a used DTS for my wife. She loves the DTS. Thank goodness I drive a truck; 2003 F-150; 210,000 miles and still running strong.
2002 VW Jetta 1.8. Nice looking car but they aren't good at building cars in Mexico.
I bought one in the early 80s. Great gas mileage but had to run premium in it or it wouldn't shut off. Also (even though I ran premium) had to replace 3 catalytic converters and two timing belts in.less than 3 years. POS. I hated that damned car. It was less than six months old when some yahoo at UF sideswiped it in the parking lot (field near Shands).
