Top Ten Worst Car Companies


The Top Ten

1 Audi

Actually, this car brand is ranked #1 statistically in everything, with a road score of 80. OF 80. If you don't believe me search up best car companies statistically on Google. - DABEAST29

You 2 suck then Audi is the best

Audi=wastage of money, time, and anything you can think of. Volkswagen provides many better cars at the same cost.

Audi is the best not worst

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

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.

The Ford vehicles are just junk over the years people in my family have hated the quality of these trucks and cars because they are poor these vehicles are very complicated because they do so many stupid things the are unnecessary people are so blind because they buy a ford for the name not the quality and Ford also made a garage because they know their cars are going to break down because they made them to do that so they could more money off you because you like buying the worst truck of America ford deserves to be up here as number one because they are scam artist.

My 2012 Mustang should have transmission replacement as a routine maintenance item. If they ignore it and pay off someone at the Highway Safety Foundation to drop the investigation, then they are only left with their recalls which for the better part of the last 45 years always involve catching fire. The only good thing I can say is that Chrysler is far worse.

The first car they made was hard to drive, only had 2 brakes and could not go uphill. The pinto became famous for catching fire in rear end collisions. The bronco was literally unstable. Their kuga also burns.

3 Fiat

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 They are out of date and are behind everyone else in terms of car making.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

They tried to take 50% of Ferrari. Why is this on number 20? At least ford made a mustang, is ford really THAT bad?

Everyone is talking about what they did to Chrysler and Dodge and what not. But Fiat ruined Lancia. And that is unforgivable.

4 Dodge

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

I disagree. One word.
The Caravan.
My family is pretty big two parents, four kids, a grandma, and a big dog. We got the old piece of crap used, and have busted pretty much everything in it, mostly due to our own carelessness. Back doors broke. No air conditioning. Brake problems. Flat tires. A giant dent in the door from where a car hit it. It is still on the road with 125000 miles on it, and perfectly okay. It's true what they say. While Dodge may not be the prettiest or most reliable, they can take one hell of a beating and come out okay, which is a great thing to have.

Dodge is the worst brand of cars. They rust really bad. They break down a lot. I don't like how those cars look. And I don't want to see those cars ever again and they should go bankruptcy.

Horrible cars now they used to be good though

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

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.

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

Does anybody know what toyota is? They made the BAD SPACESHIP MR2 - LEXUS

6 Chrysler

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

Chrysler is a great brand! I KNOW that some of you have had bad experiences with Chryslers in the past, but look at all the other imported brands being praised for reliability, but most of their cars on the road are lemons! Honda had over 10 years of transmission, brake and engine problems, but NOBODY CARED. Toyota got away with more than five years of major engine problems! Nissan has their new CVT transmissions going at under 10k miles! A lot of cars flopped in reliability in the 2000s, Chrysler being one of them (along with Ford, Honda, Chevrolet, Pontiac, Toyota, Nissan, and others). Reliability may never have been a strong point for Chrysler, but every rose has its thorns.

A company that went bankrupt twice and has not changed how they build cars at least GM and ford now make good cars but Chrysler still makes bad cards

7 Tata

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.

Stupidest car company ever, there 2013 model cars look like 2008 model cars. They are so old looking and cheap.

9 Volkswagen Volkswagen

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.

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

12 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.

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.
