Top Ten Worst Ford CarsFord has a great line of success. But that doesn't always apply to its cars...
Note: The list was originally based on consumer reports. Some information here may be wrong. This list was numbered according to amount of complaints and what type of complaints (not severe/very severe).
The Top Ten
My dad had a Pinto and hated it. I think he purposefully crashed into that water tank to get rid of it.
Meaning "small pen**" in Brazil, this car was a car, more or less. But what really ticked people of in the ol' days was that the Pinto had a tendency to erupt into flames when rear-ended, causing charges of up to $50 million. Let 'em burn. Also, there isn't anything that makes the Pinto stand out. If you want the car which is Mini Hell, get a 1971 Pinto. - DontMakeARookieMistake
Give the crap to the USAF so they can drop them on enemies as thermobaric weapons.
Yep, I knew this would hit #1. It's a piece of crap - Mcgillacuddy
Why would you need to escort, when you have a Ford Escort from the 1990's! Anyway, the Escort didn't have anything wrong with it, but it's what it's not. There's no beautiful display, no great fuel economy, no anything... - DontMakeARookieMistake
Engine went at 73,000 due to water pump leaking into crankcase and transmission going at 97,000. Worst car I've ever owned
They are heavily unreliable. Most last no more than 75k
