The opposite end of the great Top 10 thread running now....

10 cars you'd rather eat glass, than own.

No particular order.

1) Any late 70's British Leyland car
2) Renault Alliance
3) Ford Pinto
4) Chevrolet Avalanche
5) Yugo (NO, you don't)
6) Deawoo Leganza
7) Any previous generation of Camry (B-l-a-n-d)
8) Suzuki Sidekick
9) Current Chevy Malibu (See Camry)
10) 1986 Eldorado/Toronado/Riviera

Fiat Strada

Damn, I was going to list this one, but figured it sold so few here, nobody would recall it. I thought they were cool. The base two door was just a few dollars more than the 79 Mazda GLC my dad bought for me as a graduation present from high school. On further review, I should be happy I got a new Mazda over a new Fiat....

I'm just going to keep my list to models produced in the last few years....

Pontiac Aztec
Citroen Xsara Picasso
Pontiac Grand Am
Pontiac Grand Prix
Chevy Impala
Chevy Coblalt/Pontiac Pursuit
Ford LTD/Mecrcury Grand Marquis
Chevy Uplander/Pointac Montana/Saturn Relay
Saturn Ion
Opel Agila

I'd also like to add anything the Chrysler built up until a few years ago (K-cars, Acclaims, Sebrings, Stratus, Neons, Concrode's, Dynasty's) a very dark time in Chrysler's history (as far as design goes).

Ah, this is too easy.
I just went down the list of all new imported car-based SUV-like cars.

TriStarEnvy:
Notice, many others has outdone your Aztec.  Smile
As horrendous the Aztec looks, at least Pontiac did try to do something different and push the envelope a little.
These others are just bland & stupid. Worst of all, they aren't that cheap so dealers are making money off of mark ups with these. That means we can expect to see more of these boring vehicles for quite some time.  Sad


Acura MDX




BMW X3





BMW X5





Honda Element




Infiniti FX35/45





Kia Sorento




Mercedes M-class




Mitsubitchi Endevor

On the top of my list is;

Peugeot 807, had it as a rental car and had all sorts of problems. It kept saying the tires were deflated (they weren't). Seat were small and uncomfortable. My dad said the gears on the stick were way too close together, and located in wierd positions. It was also hard to handle.

He doesn't like the Delorean or the Zil?! WTF?! Some people just hate everything don't they? You'd be surprised how many people will kill for a Delorean. Check out projectvixen.com. This guy spent five years restoring one by himself. It looks great. Hey, Alberchico, what do YOU drive? Or are you going to CLAIM that you drive (Insert name of $100,000 car here) and not a Lada!

I can't believe nobody has thrown in the Lada. What a POS. I've only been in one that didn't smell like it had gas leaking in the passenger compartment. Plus they're fugly to the extreme.

Ladas are so crappy that a few models have a flaw: driving backwards will make the odometer roll back! Now that's a P.O.S.!  eek

I miss my old Trooper - it may be kind of homely but it was the most rugged and reliable vehicle I ever owned. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather have a Cayenne.

They're great until about 85K plus, then....Oil starts leaking into the spark plug wells, rear cam plugs leak, brake rotors need replacement and you have to disassemble their "Rubix Cube" hubs, timing belt,water pump, crank seals, everything is expensive, technical info is brief. I guess I just hate working on them.
I know what you mean, though, a few cars that I own are mentioned above and have been very satisfying. Someone mentioned the Cayenne above, go figure?
