The men and women who design, engineer and manufacture our automobiles perform remarkable feats to get and keep cars on the road. Nobody's perfect though, and sometimes they don't quite get everything right. Here are some of our favorite cars that seem to have gotten it all wrong!
2007 Chrysler Sebring
Described as a "tired dog," a "rental car," and the worst car in its class for overall ride… Yep, it belongs on this list.

2001 Pontiac Aztek
We don't really have to explain this one, do we?
1990 Chevrolet Lumina APV
This clunker was actually nicknamed "dustbuster" because it looked so much like a vacuum cleaner. Woof.
1983 Renault Alliance
You thought the Dauphine would be the last Renault car on the list? Oh no. The Alliance was so awful that it was routinely found abandoned on the side of roads.
1981 DeLorean DMC-12
Despite its cult popularity due to its presence in "Back To The Future," the DeLorean's poor performance helped to contribute to it being out of production in relatively short order.
1980 Chevy Citation
A Citation is what the manufacturers of this car should have received, as it was notorious for falling apart!

1976 Chevy Chevette
Urban legends circulated around the time of young men attempting to pick up women by alluding to their "Vette," only for the women to be disappointed to find that the car in question was this monstrosity.
1975 AMC Pacer
Honestly, what is this thing?! Who designed this? Are they still employed?
1974 Ford Mustang II
Despite having received praise at the time, the 1974 'Stang came equipped with four or six-cylinder engines, an embarrassing reality for a renowned muscle car.
1973 Austin Allegro
The Allegro's design was so poor that critics joked it was "more aerodynamic going backwards." Ouch!
1971 Ford Pinto
The poorly-designed Pinto had a fuel tank issue that actually caused the car to catch fire if rear-ended!
1971 Chevrolet Vega
The 1971 Vega was rolled out, to great acclaim, with a new aluminum engine block and rustproofing. It proved to be prone to engine failure and extreme corrosion. Whoops.
1960 Chevrolet Corvair
Because of an uncommon rear swing axle, the Corvair handled poorly and caused an abnormal number of accidents. Yikes!
1958 Edsel Villager
Despite boasting features like automatic lubrication and self-adjusting brakes, this car was just too ugly to succeed, and is still mocked to this day.
