    SsangYong - I was waiting for someone to say it but I've been beaten to the call..
    Proton - Don't get me started, Malaysian car manufacturer... Bleh...

    Every Charade should be forcibly taken from the road and crushed to made into dog food cans..

    I think anything made in Korea rates pretty high, simply because these cars are built to a price, rather than a standard.
    I know there are a fair few people who will say hyundai aren't so bad now, but they're still cheap imported s**t. end of story.
    aren't the Fiat 126 and FSM niki the exact same car, built in different sheds? I thought they were

    at the top of the list dihatsu, followed by kia, suzuki, daewoo, hyundai

    there are plenty of better alternatives to a cheap new car and those certainly shouldent be one of them

    I have a little Swift as a run around,good little car and cheap to run.
    Suzuki are actually one of the quality brands.As for everything else mentioned,I have to agree.

    hmmmm Kia arnt to good, Daihatsu made the hijet which is one of my all time favs, EA Falcon.....lol why cant I not laugh when I say it but then Ford made the GT40 and Capri and Mustang so I cant say Ford. Toyota are industructable but so so so very boring and plain. Holdens only big mistake was the Camira and RB Gemini as for every Commo gotta love em. So yeah id be putting Kia at the top of my list as I just hate everything they have ever done second to that Hyundai

    Has anyone driven a Toyota Landcruiser that is late 70's early 80's vintage...
    Some 400,000 kays, rusted chassis, shell shakes like mad at 80km/ph, bulletproof, bloody bulletproof I tell ya!

    I had a 1971 FJ40 once. It was fitted with a 350 chev. Would nearly wheel stand and go almost anywhere. Pitty it didn't stop real well. It was a great "beach" car over summer with the roof off it.

    My vote for the worst car ever is (was) my 4cyl VH 5 speed Commodore. Believe me it was slow. I guess though, after losing my licence 4 times for speeding (I'm talking late 70's early 80's)in my souped up HQ coupe, I finally managed to get off my Ps when I was 27

    They're not bad. Seen two serious failures though. A 40 series that did a water pump in a big way and a 70 series that had a rear half shaft fail. The 40 had to be towed, but the real testament to the never say die attitude of the cruiser is that the fellas in the 70 just removed the remains of the broken axle, chucked it into high 4 and drove 40km back into town as a front wheel drive. They're absolutely horrible, uncomfortable rough as guts, slow heaps of crap. But they'll get you where you're going almost without fail. As long as you don't plan on getting there quickly. (Unusual ones like Reaper's being the exception of course)
