Cars you despise....

I think everyone has the cars they like, and the ones they dont much care for, or despise. Whether you dont like the way they look, how much they break, how they drive, or just plain dont like the model, list em.

Here are mine, from absolute worst to just plain bad. Most on the list come from experience working on them and driving them.

1. Ford Contour = Ranges from bad styling, handling, rattletrap, and a severe pain in the ass to work on, to an all around crappy car. Just plain annoying to even look at.....LOL

2. Ford Expedition (worst large SUV ever built)
3. Ford Explorer (worst SUV ever built)
4. Ford Escape
5. Ford F Series, 98-up
6. Any Ford vehicle with a diesel (how big is your bank account?)
7. Small Chevy Blazer/Jimmy/S10 (all around PITA)
8. Chevrolet Camaro (1988-up)
9. Chevrolet Corvette (all) (just yuck)
10. Cadillac (anything with a Northstar)
11. Oldsmobile Alero (breaks daily)
12. Oldsmobile Aurora (eeeww)
13. Ford Taurus/Sable
14. Ford Ranger (small)
11. Pontiac Grand Am (small)
12. Nissan Frontier
13. Chevrolet Aveo
14. Honda Accord
15. Honda Civic
16. Lincoln Continental (FWD omg...)
17. BYD (hope they never see the road in the US)
18. Pontiac 6000
19. Chevrolet Malibu (such an average joe car, but easy to work on)
20. Mazda Protege

Working at a quick lube, I'd have to say any Mazda 3, what the hell were those engineers thinking putting the skid plate there, oil filter hole in the wrong spot, along with a cartridge filter?

I don't think so, I had 2 S10s and both ran way beyond what they were supposed to. The 1st was an '89 that I rammed into a tree doing 40 something and the engine still ran with the tree on the engine pulleys. The 2nd was a '91 which by my parents say shoulda been sent to the junkyard but was still on the road last I saw it some time before moving to Vegas. I sold it to a friend 4 yrs ago.

I should have specified on that one. The crappy ones are the 96 and newer models. Much in the way of GM got worse in 1995-96 and on.
