Default Worse Vehicles Ever Built?

Lets see where this list goes.

My votes for Hyundai.
My MIL, rest in peace, bought one of these cars brand new. Within 18 thousand miles it was literally falling apart and leaking oil from just about everywhere.
Wanna know what she did? Had it replaced under warranty for the exact same vehicle. Same issues to soon follow.

The Chevrolet Citation and related platform cars, GM's first high production front wheel drive car. Disaster.

Nissan 280zx turbo. And a Darsun 240z was one of the best. Go figure.

Of all the cars I've personally owned, hands down a brand new 1976 MGB, birthday gift for my wife. Damn thing finally made it home after the third attempt (about 10 miles). It went down hill from there.... Second, 1973 Buick Riviera, burned two quarts of oil to the tank of gas from day one. Engine torn down twice under warranty, interior literally fell apart in the first year,. Traded it on a new 75 Ford Elite good car. Sad thing was I traded my beloved beautiful 71 GS455 on that Riviera ....

My Mom bought a 1974 Audi 100 the transmission fell out with less than 200 miles and it never got better.
I had a 1976 Thunderbird with the 460 CID engine had EGR problems with less than 500 miles,...and those were it's best days.

No kidding. I had a four door, four speed manual with an iron duke power plant. Beat the daylights out of it and it never failed.

Bought my MIL a Hyundai Sante Fe and she’s had 0 problems.

Now Dodge products... talk about built to a price point.

That Chevy Citation was 1 giant pile of stuff. Other giants who deserve mention:
AMC Pacer
Old Delta 88 Diesel
Cordoba with Corinthian leather
Ford Granada
Mustang II (except that little Cobra - still a pile of crap but at least it had a big motor)
TR6

Three late 70's early 80's Dodge vans. All bought new. Motor in one, tranny in another and a rear end in the last one. One was under warranty. Two fixed with junkyard transmission, rear end.

Kept buying them as they were the best looking of the big three vans. Had to drive domestic vehicles for work. All my personal were Datsuns and Toyotas and they never broke.

Hyundais and Kias have 100k mile drivetrain warranties and are well regarded.

Chevy Vega! Late 70's Had one up north. I went to start it to warm it up a little bit as it was a cold winter morning, it threw a rod while idling. Low miles on it, I couldn't believe it.

I had a 2007 Yukon xL Denali was by far the biggest piece of crap I’ve ever owned. It didn’t matter what it was on that car , it broke, from transmission to windshield wipers to door handles. I can’t even remembered how many times I got towed in....nothing in that car worked when I traded it in what a piece of junk

currently have a suburban , I guess I’m a glutton for punishment.....transmission just broke on it but luckily under warranty still
