    Mine is the Dodge Caliber rental car I received today. And I've driven ALOT of cars, worth from $500 to over $200k, many many cars over the last few years working at a few different dealerships.

    It's so bad that I may just bring it in to upgrade even though my mother's car is only going to be in the body shop for 4 days. It drives so bad, yet there is nothing mechanically wrong with it that I can tell. Like, I'm not one to complain, I've taken in Jeeps on trade that smell like fish, and cars that probably smell as bad as the one Seinfeld was trying to get rid of. But something about this car just rubs me the wrong way :dunno:

    My apologies if you own one, no offense to you personally.

    2010 Kia Forte. Actually, I have never liked any Kia I have driven. I happen to get stuck with them when I rent a car more times than I prefer.

    Someone will say Taurus because that's what all these threads turn into.

    Easy. I had a '74 Fiat X1/9. Lasted all of 18,000 miles before the engine puked, catching up with the rest of the car.

    Chrysler LeBaron convertible. God, what a piece of ****. I have no idea what I was thinking.

    That was my first and last Chrysler and first and last convertible at the same time. I'm glad I got all that out of my system.

    Can't remember the actual year, but it was an early 80's Dodge Omni. I swear the exhaust pipe was tied into the heating system, because every time you turned the heat on you would suffocate of carbon monoxide.

    89 Plymouth Colt. It was really a Mitsubishi Mirage, re-flagged as a Plymouth. Because of this car, I will never buy another Mitsubishi.

    1978 Chevy Chevette. A little $h1tbox that got all of 22 mpg.
    And Chevy honestly thought they were ready to take on the Honda Civic with that POS ?

    Best car has been my 06 Kia Spectra.

    Worst is a tie between a friends 94 Toyota T100 with a 305 in it and a 98 Chevy 3500 Diesel Service Truck.

    :agree: You beat me to it! Mine was a 1982 and the funniest thing was that I got two tickets in it at the same time! Yep! Passing (an unmarked police car) on a solid yellow line and running a stop sign. The story is too long to tell but I was almost proud to pay those two fines! I've had Corvettes, Camaro Z28, Trans Am and more and I get the tickets (only ones ever!) in a Chevette! :rofl:
