Top Ten Worst Car Companies

TheCarNerd

The Top Ten

1 Audi

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.

What car u ride man?
I think a auto...
Reason of taking worst things about the cars..
As for which reason u can tell "u people don't have brain... "in the #1 Audi...

Audi actually started off as a really bad car company in the 1900. But Audi has gotten a little better the past years.

2 Ford Ford The Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.

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.

Well I don't know what you guys have had but, I've owned and driven Ford's for my whole 42 years of my 56 year old life and have never had any of the issues, problems stated here my whole family and kids all drive Ford's. I'm a mechanic myself. I have a 2001 f150 4x4 with 35" Tires with 240,000 miles on it for most of its life been threw all kinds of terrain, mud ice snow, pulled huge loads. Only things need were regular maintenance. Brakes 2 times, 1 battery and 1 set of headlight bulbs. I own 8 different mustangs and drove all of them like I stole them.
FORD is the greatest CAR and For SURE TRUCK maker ever.
I worked in the oilfields for a long time so I had many truck of all Maker's a d Ford's were the only truck you could work hard without having it in the shop most of the time.
I could talk all day about how great they are. Currently have 11 Ford cars and trucks and 1 Lincoln Navigator that's awesome.
People that voted Ford as o e of the worst are just hater's!

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.

I have had great luck with my Ranger and three other Ford pickups and 1 Ford LTD

3 Dodge

Absolute junk, everything falls off

I agree with you. These cars are unreliable they tend to break down often. - TheBMWNerd29880

I agree that the older mopars had pretty durable motors such as the 225 slant six and the old Torqueflites. The biggest enemy with old mopars is rust. They rusted badly. I had a '73 Plymouth Duster 340 that I purchased used in 1980. It was one of the most mechanically reliable cars that I've ever owned clocking nearly 200,000 miles on the original engine. The Duster's fit and finish wasn't that great, but it was mechanically very sound and reliable. Driving my Duster on those salty Ohio roads the body and K frame were badly rotted. I ended up scrapping the car in 1990. I still miss my old Duster. The last mopar that I owned was a 1999 Dodge Intrepid (purchased new) that was absolute junk. The transmission blew up at only 5000 miles, and I had a myriad of electrical, brake, paint, and mechanical problems with that car. It also had the horrible 2.7 V6 that's become the worst engine Chrysler ever built. I ended up selling the Intrepid two years later and buying a used 1996 Honda Accord ...more

If you want an old mopar, just get a plymouth

5 Toyota Toyota Toyota is a Japanese car manufacturer, located in Toyota, Japan. Some of their most notable cars include the Prius, Corolla, and Highlander.

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

No way is our union this bad to put this on her

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. - USGC

The only flaw Toyota ever had was the 3.0 liter V6 in the older trucks and 4runners. Other then that they have literally no problems. So I don't know why they are on this list.

8 Chrysler Chrysler Chrysler is one of the "Big Three" automobile manufacturers in the United States, headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

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

They canceled almost all their cars except the Pacifica & the 300.

10 Volkswagen Volkswagen

Volkswagen is the best car company in the world. It' s cars are super powerful and good looking too. If you have buyed it you must have seen it first and the buyed. My car is 9 years old and there's nothing wrong in it.

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.

13 Honda Honda Honda Motor Co., Ltd. is a Japanese public multinational conglomerate corporation primarily known as a manufacturer of automobiles, aircraft, motorcycles, and power equipment.

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.

Honda is the best

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

Trash cars.

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.

Just haters - GamerXS

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.

Everyone said that all Proton cars are rip-offs of another cars, but not all knew that Perodua cars are basically Daihatsu cars, Kancil, Kelisa, Viva are from Daihatsu's Mira, Kenari from Move, Kembara from Terios etc. But the safeness of Peroduas are improving and Perodua began to designing its own cars such as the D20N Myvi, and Bezza although still using Toyota engines. About Proton, for those who claimed Protons are rip-offs, they are more ignorant than they realize... I don't hate Perodua, I like the design of Peroduas more than their original form (Toyota/Daihatsu). I just hate those people that accused Proton for doing rip-offs (although Proton didn't) while seeing Peroduas as original designs... But I must admit, Peroduas are much reliable than Protons due to the technologies that given by Toyota to Perodua...

48 Suzuki Suzuki Suzuki Motor Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation headquartered in Minami-ku, Hamamatsu.

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.
