Top Ten Worst Car CompaniesTheCarNerd
The Top Ten
Really bad cars with horrible motors that go after 100k miles. People here just like them and are defending them because they're "luxury" cars like a BMW or Mercedes, which really aren't much better. Audi's are just glorified Volkswagen's.
Pretty damn great cars. The RS7 styling is beautiful and the interior isn't half bad.
Audi actually started off as a really bad car company in the 1900. But Audi has gotten a little better the past years.
You people don't have a brain. Audi is one of the best car brands in the world. They have an average road score of 81.39 and make very nice interiors and exteriorsV 29 Comments
The items that fail with regularity on Ford vehicles is stunning. Things that last 20-60 years, or longer on older vehicles, now rust through, fail, fall off, fall apart, break, were never correctly installed in the factory, were so poorly engineered that one wonders if Ford even has any engineers on their staff. If you buy a Ford, just keep it in the garage, never drive it except during dry, sunny weather, and pray constantly. Fix Or Repair Daily is now more true than ever. Scary As Hell should be the new name for Ford.
This is garbage, Ford has made excellent trucks over the years, my 1999 4 cylinder Ranger just hit 120,000 miles today. My father owns a 2002 Ford Excursion Limited Diesel that has a 7.3 Liter International Harvester engine in it making it one of the most powerful engines ever placed into a truck. The excursion now has 250,000 miles on it and has been all over the United States, From east coast to west coast, North to South with ZERO trouble. of course there were flat tires and oil changes from time to time but my experience has been very good with Ford.
Because I'm ozzy
Come on, Ford has made some great vehicles, like the Crown Victoria, and as someone mentioned, the Excursion, one of the BIGGEST, and GREATEST SUVs out there! Plus, our Windstar (2000) is at 150,000 miles. Right now it needs a little work, but all cars need work, somehow or another. But I'm proud that ours made it this far so far. Most Windstars (so I've heard) don't make it that far, but I guess we just lucked out. But overall, my family has had good experiences with Ford, and it does not deserve to be here on this list. Chrysler or Dodge deserves to be high up here. - yoshidinodude64V 74 Comments
I agree with you. These cars are unreliable they tend to break down often. - TheBMWNerd29880

Dodge should be number one have you ever heard the saying dripping oil and and dropping grease everywhere.V 17 Comments
They destroyed Chrysler! The ruined most Jeeps and uglified the Charger. Oh and how could I leave out the part where they ordered the crushing of 93 rare Vipers?
Ugly, behind disgusting cars are made by fiat. They are out of date and are behind everyone else in terms of car making. I think fiat will just have to shut their terribly, awful company of disgraceful cars
Everyone is talking about what they did to Chrysler and Dodge and what not. But Fiat ruined Lancia. And that is unforgivable.V 27 Comments
Gosh people, educate yourselves, if you're going to state Toyota is a bad car company, list valid reasons... such as the number of recalls that the company has had. I disagree with Toyota being on this list, I can tell you that Toyota while perhaps lacking in overall appearances is an absolutely superb car manufacturer. With almost all of the models being made here in United States, Models excluding that are the Land Cruiser and 4Runner with both being made in Japan. I believe another model is made in Japan like the FJ Cruiser, but I can't remember. Anyways, Toyotas are synonymous to having the lowest cost of ownership, high resale value, high reliability, high safety ratings, and being built to a high standard of quality. The new engines for example the 2014 Toyota Camry uses 0W-20 oil, meaning it's fully synthetic and the engine is made completely made out of Aluminum. What this translates to is only needing to change your oil every 10,000 miles and if you like the sound of that ...more
Toyota sells cars at ridiculously expensive prices.STUPID CARS
Whoever put this on the list shluld cut their heads off, fall in a volcano, get run over by a truck, fall off a cliff, hold their breath for 3 weeks, go in the oven at 1000 degrees, get puched in the balls 20 times and then chuck them in hell.
Toyota creates one of the most reliable cars in the world. Are also good first time cars. I really don't know why this is one of the most hated. Yes, it is not luxury, but still, there are a lot of worse car brands. - USGCV 49 Comments
You are so wrong tata is the best car company in india... We are so proud of them because they are building so strong cars with amazing design and amazing feel of everything
TATA ain't a joke kid.
No tata is a car company with respect... Check out their new models of cars... Tata harrier and Tata altroz.. You'll get stunned... Never misplace an Indian car company... You talk about Chevrolet... How did it fail in India (I don't mean to embarrass anyone.. It's an opinion of mine.
I swear people people are hating on Tata because of one car: the nano. The nano probably costs less than any other car and don't forget Tata bought Land rover and Jaguar and refreshed the 2 brands that weren't doing too well under Ford. So don't hate.V 25 Comments
Chrysler cars are bad the Sebrings were chicken nuggets with a door and windows! They almost discontinued all the their cars except 2 of them! I hate Chrysler so much.
Chrysler should be #1 worst. I have never known anyone that has owned a Chrysler that hasn't said it was the worst vehicle they have ever owned. Every time you see a car broke down on the highway (save for a flat tire or out of gas) it is a Chrysler. ALWAYS a Chrysler or a Dodge or Jeep. Look at any reliability list for the last 45+ years and just about every model Chrysler makes is at the bottom. Find one driving in a straight line on the highway. Find one that is parked in the lines in a parking spot. The people that drive them aren't usually too bright. Guessing they have no access to the internet to look up reliability. Their dealerships are only staffed with the most incompetent service staff and the cheezy suit wearing balloon tieing salesmen. Every single thing is an option. What a lousy company. Already went bankrupt twice, maybe third time is a charm.
Chrysler has always ranked the pooest in vehicle construction quality, reliability, and customer satisfaction from its dealers. I've owned a few later model Chrylser products and can conclude that these vehicles are absolute junk. The LH cars were attractive in appearance and offered a roomy interior, but a transmission blowing up on a car with less than 5000 miles is beyond belief. Chrysler has no appealing fuel efficient vehicles in their line up. All they seem to want to focus on are their "throw back retro mobiles" with over powered engines, goofy styling, and dated Mercedes Benz underpinnings. Chrysler won't survive unless they can build some cutting edge automobiles with hybrids and all electrics; drastically improve their quality control, drastically improve customer satisfaction, drop the silly over muscled retro mobiles that appeal to a small minority of auto buyers, and do create a new range of automobiles that can actually wow the majority of auto buyers. If Chrysler can't ...more

German car company. - Trollsfan536
I'm a used car wholesaler and deal primarily with 5 to 10 year old cars. My usual month, I will buy and sell over 100 cars. Volkswagen and Audi along with Porsche SUV's are rather problematic and very pricey to repair. Terrible electrical systems, poor gaskets and so on. They are on parr with Jaguar, Rover or any crap out of Italy. In all honesty, European brands generally are poorly put together and way overpriced. There's a reason why a 10 year old Honda civic is worth more than a 10 year old S class Mercedes, and Audi A8 or anything out of Europe. Toyota may have recalls, but the costumer pays nothing and the car will run for decades, as will any Honda.
Terrible Car company, tests on animals illegally and lies about emission values. Can they continue to keep ruining their public relations?
What's weird is I hate Volkswagen but I love Audi (there the same company). Audi's are very well designed cars. Volkswagen have the most boring looking cars I've ever seen.V 9 Comments

Why is this here
they build great cars
one of the best Japanese car companies
built the first super car that was cheapish and built the first super car that wouldn't break down in five seconds or break down if it reached high speeds
Some of the comments are funny. Just because it's not very fast doesn't mean that it's bad! The voters seem to be a bunch of teenagers who only see cars as speed vehicles. Most people actually don't care about speed and have higher priorities for their cars. The purpose of Honda cars was never to be speed-impressive. There are other car brands that are made for that purpose. - RalphSaad
Honda is a good very good vehicle, getting great gas mileage and is a generally safe brand of vehicles. However they're just boring to look at, The pilot and the element look like a box, the Accord coupe is okay and I like the features of the 2014+ models, The civic is dull to look at but is a fun college/university student car... kinda reminds me of a jet fighter from the drivers seat just because of how the console is set up... well you know.. not AS cool obviously. The Fit is boring, the CrZ looks like it came out of Tron, The CRV no matter how much it's updated is still uncool. It's got that "my boring parents drive this" look to it. Still to Honda's defense, they're affordable, safe, and economic vehicles to own.
Japanese car brand. - Trollsfan536V 15 Comments
These junkies have a horrible reliability and they are ugly. The people who voted for audi ford and toyota have just never embarked in these rotting on wheels. In russia lada is good but not in America.
A lada being tested by a Australian petrol head caught fire... In his driveway. Not moving, not even on. Who would like having cars spontaneously combusting in the driveway or a garage?
Good point. Lada looks like a 2010 or 2008 or something like that. I am stunned with shame on the design
Lada cars mostly get rusty quite fast.V 6 Comments
There is NO bad thing about Buick. It is an AMAZING car company. WHY IS IT EVEN ON THE LIST?!
Cars for old people
Buicks are not terrible at all. They actually have a pretty nice look, beautiful interiors and a history of good times with this brand.

How can you make such bad cars its like the people in charge of peugeot are either trying to make bad cars or are just plain stupid
Peugeot are the worst cars ever
Why is it this low? If you know how bad they are, you know why. Cannot brake properly, malfununctioning heat system that can literally explode and set on fire, doesn't reverse well, and has many features and buttons that literally permanently lock the back doors and do nothing.V 4 Comments
Mini's are amazing and the mini coopers are so cute as well! Don't know why it's even on the list.
These are actually luxury cars!
Mini's don't look that bad. I'm not sure how they run but they are from BMW so they may be some pretty good cars. - Mcgillacuddy

Overrated, overpriced, and just not a good car in general.

Will find away not honour their warranty. Two major repairs not covered.
Kia will make good cars... When pigs fly!
Kia is absolute trash. They can't make reliable cars (and when they do it's just because the problems start after the warranty ends and aren't as apparent to the owners), and their diagnostic systems are badly written and in backwards EnglishV 10 Comments
Sucks, ford is best
Celling is too weak
For people saying their trucks and cars last a long time, that's because I have worked on so many of them to do so, more then any other brand. They use the cheapest parts, material, and piss poor engineered. Their engine is ok but when it comes to anything else, it's garbage.V 14 Comments
Japanese brand - Trollsfan536
Person who said "They don't make good powersteering", did you even test drive the vehicle before you bought it.
Zoom zoom zoom, not really
I will never buy another Mazda 3. Mazda does not know how to make power steering, My Mazda 3 acts like a car without power steering. Never, never agsin.V 12 Comments
They are so ugly
They made a horrrible Car called the G-wiz Which had no room,a battery which lasts for 2 minitues and simply broke up in a crash test
STAY AWAY FROM ANY CARS MADE BY REVA!
Because they are electric cars? Maybe if they get wet, then they get ruined
Commuter cars don't even have wipers. Why?
Some commuter cars actually DO have wipers
They look so stupidV 1 Comment
Uhhh...what. Porsche isn't even bad company. Yeah, they might be expensive to repair sometimes, but so is your friendly neighborhood Kia and other high performance car companies like Ferrari. They also last almost near half a century if they are driven sparingly (*cough* 60's and 70's 911s). Don't even say expensive to purchase either. If you know your cars, you know literally ANY used Porsche can be found from $7,000 to $90,000 USD. By my opinion too, they are nice looking. So please do your research before you say a car company like Porsche is bad.

Their cars are worst ever production car in the world...! They even can't fix the power window system problem for all range models they produced. The company always copycat other car companies design just bit changes been made. They don't worthy as car maker..

My mom used to own a hyundai the car was a peace of crap, it kept having problems and stuff
Hyundai and Kia are Korean cars. But I like Kia better than Hyundai. So this car company has to be the worst. Because they make horrible motors. Especially the Accent.

Saturn is one of the most worst cars because they only made it for 1 1/2 years cause there brand was to bad

The Versa, enough said
Nissan is the biggest over priced piece of junk truck I ever got. 11,000 miles and broken, they use to make good truck and cars today I think all cars and trucks today are beer cans with wheels, will stick to motorcycles, cost less to up keep better mileage less pollution and no traffic problems just shoot down the center on the traffic jam.
GTR a box?! More like a coffin for other supercar companies because some of them is going to lose lots of money for the performance-price ratio!
Nissan is probably one of the best car companies out there, besides supercar companies like Ferrari and Maserati - McgillacuddyV 8 Comments

Hardcore badass but kinda pointless to buy if you don't have anywhere to drive fast - Mcgillacuddy
Wouldn't be so obvious but around all circumstances, the Koenigsegg Agera would outmatch the Bugatti Veyron in all circumstances, yet with an equal or lower price tag. I hope you get what I'm saying.

Don't like renaults they bad car
Good SUV maker and bit stylish as well.
My parents owned two Suzuki cars since the past two decades - Suzuki FX and Margalla in Pakistan. In my experience, the car manufacturer should be banned from Earth. They make pathetic unreliable cars with bad quality suspension, timing belt, mileage, etc. The only thing positive about the cars is that the engine last for a long time without much trouble about 90k kilometers.
I was forced to ride these junk cars since my parents were relatively poor. I intend to break this trajectory God willing by buying a Honda or Toyota in the next few months.
My Suzuki Swift only lasted for 5 YEARS
