    I've only had 2 fords and a vauxhall in between.

    Vauxhall loses, but its not a bad brand.

    Peugeot for me too - had a 309 that we nicknamed The Pig as it was so awful.

    Used to have to leave it running for at least 20 mins before you stood any chance of it working. We always hoped someone would steal it whilst it was left on the road with the keys in, engine on...no such luck!

    we used to have a yugo lol

    Same as op.

    a less sporty one of these

    Skoda, from the 80's - a 130 Rapid Coupe !! Rapid, it certainly wasn't - what a piece of junk. I've had tons of different makes and models over the years and learned the general rule of thumb - try and buy German or Japanese. Current car is an old MX5 and it's a stormer !!

    Citroen,complete piece of crap

    Talbot [Horizon]

    The gear mechanism / balljoint would disengage sometimes, and it always came to a halt going up steep hills [left me with a red face for several reasons]

    Vauxhall, our Zafira spent more of the 6mths we had it with the dealer than with us!

    Used to have a Fiat Fiorino we had to start with a hammer and screwdriver!!

    Oh and had a Ford Montego which was a real rustbucket, floor went before it was a year old!!!

    Fiat Cinqucento.

    700cc's of raw power!!!!

    Compared to the othere the Cinquecento is a luxury motor

    What's that comment for brah? As I recall you don't even have a driving licence

    40k merc is the worst car, your right :thumbsup: :-D

    hmmm

    had fiat punto for me!

    Renault.

    Their customer service is appaling, and their parts department dont have a clue. I dont expect them to know renault cars inside out but a basic knowledge of how a car works should be there.

    I have a driver, I own the car. This is my first car, so in theory its my worst one too

    Saab 9-3 - 56 plate - like driving a big, wallowy armchair - Bad Times.

    garbage456;5800550

    that surprises me really



    Theres nothing wrong with it really - but its so anonymous - the steering is unresponsive - suspension is wallowy and soft, handling is nothing to write home about, engine was - meh


    Just nothing to get excited about! lol

    Austin the word you were looking for? ;-)

    For me, Vauxhall Astra Estate, drove it once then sold it on at a 70% loss. That was still a gain in my book though as it was complete and utter **** :lol:

    I went to college for 3 years to study motor vehicle engineering. The one thing I learnt is

    My first ever car was a mini metro like this one,i've hed better cars ever since

    Vauxhall Vectra SRI company car, was dire, horrible to drive you felt so remote from the road,, there was no feedback or any driver enjoyment, shame the fleet manager loved them, I had to change jobs to get away from that thing. I often left it parked up with the keys in and no scroaty ever tried to knick it.

    Worst car I eve had was Rover 45.(2000).It was too noisy,clumsy,always lights on such as engine management,abs,constant hassle.I swore to myself I will never ever buy Rover again.
    Since then I had many different makes and for the last 3 years I have been with Renault which seems to work for me.

    I had one of these, note I rate it more highly than that poxy Astra :lol:

    Skoda Felicia on a 99 V reg.

    Brought it with 66k on the clock,

    Scrapped it with 68k on the clock as it would have cost £2200 to fix haha

    Worse brand ? Austin without a doubt.
    Had a brand new Metro that leaked water onto the dashboard driving it home from the showroom. Within a few months it needed a new clutch, water pump, wheel bearings and suspension rebuild.
