When it comes to terrible cars most people think that it is only manufacturers of bread-and-butter cars that are at fault, and in most cases, they would be right. 

While most top motor manufacturers tend to deliver quality products year after year, their decades of experience and vast resources make mistakes the exception rather than the rule. But every now and then somebody drops the ball and one of these fancy brands releases a car that really shouldn’t have gone much further than the drawing board. If even that far.

From awkward designs that look wrong from all angles to models that were built from other manufacturers leftovers, there are plenty of cars out there that were subpar from the moment they left the factory.

We have singled out some of the biggest and best manufacturers and searched their back catalogue to uncover the worst cars they have ever signed off on.
