50 worst cars


50. 1955 Dodge La Femme -- The car was only produced for two years. After that, Dodge decided the pink trim had to go. (Photoyno Tested, Wikipedia) / HC

49. 2006 Saab 9-7X -- This is really a rebranded Chevy Trailblazer, but it lacks style, power and any design focus. (Photo: Park Place LTD) / HC

48. 1975 Clenet Series I -- In full disclosure, this isn't a 1975 model but a 1977 model. The style of the 1975 version didn't have many fans and the performance didn't help either. (Photo: Aldenjewell, Flickr) / HC

47. 1975 Triumph TR7 -- The Triumph didn't win anything. It was a lame attempt to build a British sports car. The hardtop also was terrible. (Photo: Charles01, Wikipedia) / HC

46. 1968 Volkswagen 411/412 -- This rear-mounted car was so terrible that Volkswagen ditched it and started building a new model -- the Passat. (Photo: Sven Storbeck, Wikipedia) / HC

45. 1969 Porsche 914 -- It's a fairly stylish car, but it didn't have the performance Porsche lovers know well. (Photo: George Schwalbach, Flickr) / HC

44. 1975 Rolls-Royce Camargue -- Yeah, Rolls-Royce can make a bad car. The car lost points in the style department, and it didn't win any with what was under the hood. (Photo: Jagvar, Wikipedia) / HC

43. 1979 Mercedes-Benz 300SD / HC

42. 2006 Dodge Caliber SRT-4 -- This was Dodge's attempt to tweak an underperforming car to breathe new life into it. The Dodge Caliber failed to win the hearts of drivers. (Photo: Thomas Doerfer, Wikipedia) / HC

41. 1975 Bristol 412 -- Some of these cars made Edmunds list simply because of their looks and without much under the hood. The Bristol is one of those cars. (Photo: Charles01, Wikipedia) / HC

40. 1989 Lotus Elan -- The Elan has a few lovers out there, but critics have knocked the car for its poor performance under the hood. You can decide whether a sports car needs a big engine or high performance. Either way, the Elan didn't have either. (Photo: Georg Schwalbach, Flickr) / HC

39. 1978 Chevy C/K Diesel -- This car had engine problems that doomed it from its start. (Photo: MartinAbbott, Flickr) / HC

38. 1923 Chevy Series M -- Nearly all of these models were recalled due to some sort of problem. (Photo: Chevrolet) / HC

37. 1973 Datsun B210 -- So the photo is of a 1975 Datsun, but the car that caught the ire of car experts was the '73 model. The car won some fans because of the OPEC oil embargo, but its handling wasn't great. (Photo: Five Staff Photos, Flickr) / HC

36. 2002 GEM Chrysler -- This is a failed attempt at a workable electric car. It looks silly and didn't perform well. (Photo: Frazgo, Flickr) / HC

35. 1970 Triumph Stag -- This car had numerous engine problems and some crummy electrical parts that didn't make it a winner. (Photo: Dave_7, Wikipedia) / HC

34. 1950 Crosley Hotshot -- The car has a great name, but it had a terrible engine under the hood. (Photo: Jack_Snell, Flickr) / HC

33. 1986 Suzuki Samurai -- Another awesome name for a car, but it didn't live up to its name. The car was built for off-road use, but it handled a bit oddly on the road. And let's not forget that it doesn't look great. (Photo: Encanto_Sunland, Flickr) / HC

32. 1971 Plymouth Cricket -- The marketing was all about the size of the car, which isn't a great detail to highlight. On the road, its engine underperformed. You can see a funny video of the car here too. (Photo: Aldenjewell, Flickr) / HC

31. 1975 Chevrolet Corvette -- This one might hurt Corvette lovers, but it isn't because the car shouldn't be on the list. The 1975 Chevy Corvette was underpowered compared to previous and future Corvette models. (Photo: Jack_Snell, Flickr) / HC

30. 1954 Nash Metropolitan -- This car has its own interesting look doesn't it? Under the hood, it didn't have much power and was bit dicey around corners. (Photo: Ozz13X, Flickr) / HC

29. 1977 Lincoln Versailles -- This was a sad attempt to create a "sophisticated" car. It shows through in the advertisement. (Photo: Aldenjewell, Flickr) / HC

28. 1976 Dodge Aspen/Plymouth Volare -- The Volare and Aspen were the same car but with different branding. These cars were prone to rust, poorly built and had a laundry list of recalls. (Photo: IburiedPaul, Flickr) / HC

27. 2007 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx SS -- Edmond's makes a few comments about the car's style, but the major issue comes down to performance. The Malibu Maxx SS lacked anything special. (Photo: Chevrolet) / 2006 General Motors

26. 1990 Infiniti M30 Convertible -- The suspension wasn't great and poor engine performance makes it among the all-time worst cars. (Photo: IFCAR, Wikipedia) / HC

25. 1980 Cadillac Seville -- This was a front-drive car that failed to win too many fans. (Photo: That Hartford Guy, Flickr) / HC

24. 1996 Ford Taurus -- The previous models of the Taurus had made it one of the best-selling sedans. The 1996 model was a style and performance setback, according to Edmunds. (Photo: AldenJewell, Flickr) / HC

23. 1987 Cadillac Allante -- This was a failed attempt at competing with Mercedes' SL. The Allante was also weighed down by a high price that didn't help it earn any respect. (Photo: Sfoskett, Wikipedia) / HC

22. 1997 Cadillac Catera -- Edmunds knocks this car for its sluggish performance. Who wants a slow car? (Photo: IFCAR, Wikipedia) / HC

21. 1978 Fiat Strada/Ritmo -- This failed car helped seal Fiat's exit from the U.S. market. Like other cars, it was prone to rust so it certainly wasn't a winner. (Photo: Charles01, Wikipedia) / HC
