Top Ten Worst Car Companies

The Top Ten

Audi Audi AG is a German automobile manufacturer that designs, engineers, produces, markets and distributes luxury vehicles

All right, so you may not like Audi okay. But if you say this is the worst car, you would rather have ANYTHING else on this list. That includes fiats and smart cars or anything else like that. If you like those more, you got some serious head problems.

Audi. Where to begin? Engines are hand grenades, transmissions fail, wishbones like to bend, plastics fall apart if they're not cracking, rims are weak & crack all the time - all within the first 100,000km. & the parts are not cheap. But, it's hard to feel sorry for audi owners, really - after all, they did circle the problem 4 times!

Pretty damn great cars. The RS7 styling is beautiful and the interior isn't half bad.

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.

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.

Owned a taurus for like 3 years, wanted to drive it off a cliff. When I got my next car, I got a single dollar for this hunk of turd ford built. LOL shows how "good" trashy american cars are

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.

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.


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.

No dodge is good because my father has a nice dodge red truck from 1998 he has had it for 19 years and it still works fine


Apparently they are the most dangerous car company of all time...

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?

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

There is absolutely no way that someone had the audacity to put this on the worst car brands, and say "this is a bad company."
and who the hell says "Oh Toyota is awful. it only lasts a few years! " Because if you're going to say that, at least back it up will ya? Most Toyota's will last well over 300,000 miles on it, as someone else said you only have to change it every 10,000 miles. Of course, it's not "Luxury" and "Prestigious" but, it is a heck of a reliable car brand. And some Luxury car company's anyways such as Mercedes Benz, they focus way, way to much on tech instead of reliability, usually they break down quick from what I've heard. The parts cost well over 1,000 bucks to get the part replaced. So, In my opinion Toyota is your best bet, at an affordable price, and very reliable.

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.

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.


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

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.

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.

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


Overpriced and tiny. If you want a small car, get a FIAT or a Ford Fiesta, not this crap.

Probably the worst cars to consider buying.They are unpractical, unsafe,unreliable

Also there are also mercedes benz smart cars. These cars are too small slow and ugly. I never bought this car and never will. It's a ripoff mini cooper and mercedes.

These cars are literally glorified golf carts... I would hate to be in one of these while in a road rage with a semi

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

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.

Oh, Chrysler. That name makes me think of all the terrible cars they have made. Of course some of them are iconic, but still junk. People say it's because Fiat has taken over the company, but personally I don't think it got any worse than it was. The definition of Chrysler should be "Overpriced, unreliable, since the beginning."


I have to agree with modern Jeep being on the list because of the Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, Renegade and Compass. Horrid vehicles. But Jeep pre-2006 is a force to be reckoned with.

I have a Jeep and it is probably one of the best cars I’ve had in a while.

Whoever put this on here is out of their mind

#4 in worst American car brands


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.

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.

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.

The Contenders


They broke down in like a year!

Yugo's are ugly! They are horrible! This needs to be on #1! They look hideous!

Ya de de de de de de de de de de. Hasn't started.

Yugo is a model, Zastava is a brand.

Cadillac Cadillac is a division of the American automobile manufacturer General Motors that designs and builds luxury vehicles.

HEY! Cadillac does not belong here! There cars look amazing and Cadillac has good luxury too.

Hey, cadillac is nice.

Cadillac made some of the best cars but now all cadillacs look like a constipated goat rip car design

History, good car but not doing good after bankruptcy in 2009 trying to get up and going after a hard hit 3/5

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.

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

My third car I hate the most is honda.


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

What do you call a Lada at the top of a hill?

A miracle.


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

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.

Rubbish France just can not make cars

Peugeot are the worst cars ever


There is NO bad thing about Buick. It is an AMAZING car company. WHY IS IT EVEN ON THE LIST?!

Buicks are not terrible at all. They actually have a pretty nice look, beautiful interiors and a history of good times with this brand.

Cars for old people


, the Mira Gino is a Mini rip off

Daihatsu isn't that bad

Daihatsu is just a bad version of toyota

Daihatsu is stupid and slow


The company hooks up their cars with dat Samsung Galaxy Note battery so don't be surprised if your Tesla catches on fire

What's wrong with you, Tesla is the best car company out there with zero emissions and less chance of fires. Do you hate our environment or what?

Tesla Autopilot goes wrong and crashes! The Autopilot needs to be Update!

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


Mini coopers are to small they look cute but are dangerous and stupid

Minis may be small, which can be dangerous if you get in an accident but they are luxury cars and are considered a B.M.W 3 series

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!

Chevrolet Chevrolet, colloquially referred to as Chevy and formally the Chevrolet Division of General Motors Company, is an American automobile division of the American manufacturer General Motors.

Chevy is truly crap. Starts falling apart as soon as you get it home. The quality is horrendous.

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.

S10s are quote bad, but mine has no problem and it's 16 years old!

I am surprised that Chevy isn't number one. Maybe it's just every Chevy I've ever owned... Pure garbage


The Kia car is kinda nice but the Kia Soul is ugly and to top it off it comes in ugly colors like brown and green.

Brokedown peace of junk that's a poor Brand name right that doesn't deserve by making A name for its self but soon obsolete need I've said more even to Taint unseemly undesir

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 English

Mazda Mazda Motor Corporation, commonly referred to as simply Mazda, is a Japanese multinational automaker based in Fuchū, Aki District, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.

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.

Horrible deserves better than 17

ABSOLUTE WORST CAR COMPANIES! I am stupid I am going to buy a Mazda woah this car crashes into every thing and is made poorly I want my money back! Of corse you do Mazdas are awful cars made poorly


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


Expensive name only cars. Good luck getting a local shop to change your oil. Get something worth your money that won't cost $15K for small time maintenance

I owned a 70s 911 and it was awesome! It was a manual red one only for a price on eBay for 7,250$Never had a problem! Really good rally car too.

Rather buy a gtr

Porsche is cool! What!

Commuter Cars

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 stupid
