I'll put in a third vote for the Yugo. I can't imagine how the thing ever made it to the US to begin with. After all, we have pretty strict safety standards here. Yugos had the worst reputation for reliability and crash safety of any car on the road while they were on the market. Thank God they're gone. No big loss.

You guys seems not to know the French and Italian cars like peugeot , fiat, alfa romeo, etc (except of Ferrari and Lamborgini of course) . those cars are for use-and-throw. they are such a crap, that in the united states i didn't see just one of them. any.

BH346: Yes, I think the Fiesta and Festiva are almost the exact same car. I got a tech manual to learn more about the inner parts of the car and it says "Fiesta/Festiva" so I guess they are pretty much identical.

The Yugo was so bad that when the local dealer went kaput, they had one left over they couldn't sell before foreclosure. The owners of the building put it out front with a price of $2000 on it. The price, after six months had gone down to $500. It was finally sold for $400 about two weeks later. Pretty sad when most people I know would spend that for a 30 year old used car.
As for the Pinto and the Chevette. Hold on now! The Pinto was cute and the Chevette was actually a very good car for what you paid. In either case you got a car that would reliably transport you for 6 or 7 years with little maintanence. Not at all like the new cars sold today. Figure on 50K on the odometer and throw it away.
What is it with all the "is there a possibilty airline X will.." threads? The answer it'll is possible.

Yeah , fiesta and festiva are pretty much the same.
here in argentina, where i live, there is the fiesta, but in countries like Uruguay, Brazil and i don't know if united states too, they are called Festiva. it's just market politic.
and i'm almost sure, that their inner's are pretty much the same too.

The worst cars are American Made cars. we bought american cars and they always had trouble. But the worst would have to be teh General Motors Geo. They are pieces of crap. They are like driving eggs. the would break if they bumped into anything.
