WORST Cars In The World!

WORST Cars In The World!


From three-wheelers that are falling apart
to ugly SUV’s, here are 10 of the worst cars of all time!!! 10. 2003 Saturn Ion Saturn was a subsidiary company of General
Motors and, throughout the 90’s, the brand was doing pretty well! In 2003, though, it was time to revamp their
offering and unfortunately for them, and their customers, they came up with the Saturn Ion. The troubles began at the start when reviewers
tried out the new car. It was described as being awful in every way. The external look was uninspiring. The quality of construction was poor, it was
noisy, it was unresponsive and horrible to drive, and the interior design was basic and
dated. It was terrible timing for this, because their
competitors, like Toyota and Honda, had come out with excellent models in the same small
car class, and the Ion had no chance of competing. The final nail was put in the coffin of the
Ion when numerous safety issues were discovered. The model was eventually recalled because
of a faulty ignition switch. Saturn never managed to rescue their reputation
after the Ion, and other failures, and the Saturn brand was discontinued in 2009. 9. Chevrolet Citation The Citation is often thought of as the biggest
mistake ever by GM, and it started out so well! The X-car was released in 1980 and was so
popular at the time that Chevrolet couldn’t keep up with demand. Some people had to wait for months before
theirs was delivered, and if there hadn’t been so many production issues, more than
a million could have been sold in the first year. Demand just dive bombed over the next few
years, and by 1985 they had to cease production. This happened because of the terrible build
quality of the Citation. Plus it had the added bonus of an old design
and noisy engine. Endless accounts of transmission hoses leaking
and causing fires, driveability issues, and difficulties with shifting the transmissions
meant that it soon developed a poor reputation. The interior was horrendous too, and felt
cheap. Cost cutting measures had been taken throughout
the design, and by the time the first cars had been delivered, word got out and people
looked elsewhere for their next ride. Proof that it could have been so much better
came with the Chevy Celebrity, which was essentially the same car but with a better designed interior
and more reliable components. Had they done this from the start, then the
Citation would have been an entirely different beast altogether. And now for number 8 but if you are new to
this channel welcome! And be sure to subscribe before you go! 8. Austin Allegro The Austin Allegro was produced by British
car manufacturer “Leyland” in the 1970’s, and it went down as one of the worst cars
the notoriously shambolic company would produce. It was designed in 1973 and was rushed into
production, presumably before anyone thought about whether they were making something people
would want to drive. It looks dumpy, and the steering wheel was
an awful design. There wasn’t much space inside, unlike competitors’
offerings at the time, and it became famed for its poor reliability- being almost guaranteed
to break down at the most inopportune moment. The lack of quality in construction also led
to comical consequences- with owners discovering that if they jacked the car up from the wrong
position, the back window would fall out and the doors would get stuck shut. It’s hardly a surprise, then, that those
who owned an Austin Allegro think back with dread at their experience, and it’s often
voted as the worst car ever made in Britain. 7. Vauxhall Frontera The Vauxhall Frontera was first sold in 1989
as one of the first crossover SUV’s. It was designed in a partnership between GM
and Isuzu, and in America was known as the Isuzu MU- which stood for “Mysterious Utility”. They wanted to get into the growing market
so fast for this vehicle that they cut corners and rushed production, which led to a terrible
experience. They launched before they were ready! The handling was atrocious, and the ride was
so bouncy that even short journeys would leave you feeling rattled. There wasn’t much space in the cabin of
the car, and the side hinged tailgate limited any storage capacity in the trunk. They also had a habit of breaking down, and
guzzled far more fuel than similar models from other manufacturers. It soon gained a terrible reputation as being
uncomfortable, impractical, and unreliable. Surprisingly it was replaced by a second generation
model. This version, too, was a flawed concept, and
they were forced to go back to the drawing board with a completely revamped design for
the future. 6. 1975 Trabant Usually known for their precision engineering,
someone clearly didn’t get the memo when they were designing this car when the country
was still split into East and West. It was made on the Communist side, and became
known as the “People’s Car” going head to head with the Volkswagen Beetle. It seriously failed at this endeavour, though,
and became synonymous with poor communist-style design. It only had an 18 horsepower engine, so wasn’t
exactly designed to reach high speed- but that proved to be fortunate, because on occasions
when Trabants went fast, they were known to start falling apart. The body panels would just drop onto the road. They also neglected to include any of the
safety features you would expect from a car- there were no braking lights, no turn signals,
and the brakes wouldn’t reliably work when you needed them to. It looks awful, too, and will probably go
down as the worst German car that has ever been made. 5. Reliant Robin When you think of a car, there are certain
things you don’t expect to see- three wheels being one of them. Well, this next car- the worst ever built
in Britain (maybe tied with the Austin Allegro), is the Reliant Robin- and someone actually
thought it would be a good idea to only give it three wheels. The one wheel at the front is mounted in the
center and, most worrying of all, is the one that steers. With a body made out of plastic, and the stability
you’d expect, these cars are very easy to tip over. The build quality was poor, too, and if a
driver was brave enough to get their Reliant Robin to any semblance of high speed, the
roof would lift up and rain could pour down the inside of the windscreen. This car was so bad and comical looking that
it featured in a number of British comedy shows from the time. It did have one redeeming feature, though. The three-wheel design meant that you didn’t
need a full drivers license to drive- instead you only needed a motorbike license- so it
gave people the ability to drive who otherwise wouldn’t have been able to. 4. Davis Divan Next on the list is another three wheel car,
this time made by the Davis motorcar company of California between 1947 and 1949. They were built in a hangar at Van Nuys airport,
and were 183.5 inches long and 60 inches high. The unusual design was supposedly inspired
by fighter aircraft but, in reality, it looks more like an upturned bathtub. Fitted with a 63 horsepower engine, Davis
claimed that the cars could reach a top speed of 100 miles per hour, and were even able
to U-turn at 55 miles per hour. That would be convenient!! They were scheduled to go on sale for 1,600
dollars each, but things began to go wrong long before it went on sale. Despite raising more than a million dollars
by the sale of 350 dealerships, only 13 Divans were ever built. Mired in controversy because of the failure
to pay staff and suppliers, the company buckled under the weight of numerous court actions,
and went out of business. They were forced to give the cars to creditors. The Divan, so poor in design, was oversold
to potential dealers, and resulted in the company founder being accused of fraud, and
the company’s demise. It’s definitely for the best, though, because
these cars are death traps and would never have been safe if they were driven at the
suggested speeds. Yeah, don’t do a U-turn at 55 mph. 3. Yugo GV The Yugo GV, as it was known in the US, was
a Yugoslavian-built three door hatchback, that sold almost 150,000 units across America
between 1985 and 1992. At first you’ll notice the horrible exterior
design but, as with many cars built in the former Soviet block, the Yugo GV became known
for the issues with its build quality and reliability. It was based upon old-generation technology
from Fiat and, as such, required regular maintenance and replacement of crucial engine parts every
40,000 miles. They had very specific user instructions-
something that wasn’t understood by most owners, and led to frequent breakdowns on
the side of the road where the engine was completely destroyed. Despite its derision in the US and western
Europe- even spawning a joke that with it, “Yugo nowhere”, the Yugo GV remained in
production in Serbia until 2008, where it is still often seen on the roads. 2. 1989 Eagle Premier When you first see the Eagle Premier, it looks
like any other basic car of the 80’s. It has a chunky design and and a boring color,
so what makes it so bad? Well, it’s not so much what it does,, but
what it doesn’t. There’s simply nothing that stands out about
this car whatsoever. The designers simply don’t seem to have
put any effort in at all, and it’s just average on every point. You wouldn’t feel proud driving this through
town, it doesn’t go particularly fast and, despite being marketed as a luxurious car-
it shows no signs of luxury at all. It’s uninspiring, dull, and underwhelming,
and has terrible fuel economy too. Probably not worth the price. 1. 2001 Pontiac Aztek You might recognize this car- it was the one
used by Walter White in Breaking Bad. But even being a part of television history
can’t make the Aztek any less worse. Not only is it an awful car, but it’s, without
doubt, the worst that has been released this century and they should have known better. It looks like they designed the front half
for one purpose, and then smoked something courtesy of Heisenberg before designing the
rear half. It regularly tops polls of the ugliest cars
of all time, and while the designers openly admitted they were trying to make it a “bold,
in your face” vehicle, they clearly went quite a few steps too far. When it was launched, it cost far too much
for its intended audience, especially considering competitor cars at the time, and GM was soon
forced to cut the price substantially. It was a complete sales disaster for them,
with customers not able to get over the aesthetic design, let alone the lack of features inside. Thanks for watching! I hope you don’t have any of these cars!! But if you do hopefully you just had a positive
experience.
