It's a tie between the 87 ford taurus 4 banger I owned, and the 02 vw golf 2.0 n/a. Golf was in the shop more(electrical problems) but the throttle use to stick on the taurus haha

My first car was a 1990 N/A Supra with a salvaged title. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!! It would never idle right, I would have to bump the gas at stop lights and stuff to keep it running . It had pop up headlights but one of them would slowly fall down so you had to get out and adjust it back up. Other than that it wasn't a bad car hahah.

Mine would def have to be a 98 Ford windstar I got for free. Things replaced in 1 year are (but not limited too):

engine (3.8L MPFI)
both axles
both abs sensors
ALL engine sensors
3 window motors
exhaust
starter
alternator
all 4 O2 sensors
injectors
complete front and rear brake overhaul
fuel pump
struts
shocks
PS rack
PS pump and all hoses

I kept thinking it would eventually be new again, but it never was.

the interior lights never went off (had to remove the bulbs)
door ajar light was always on


I traded it in on my 05 OBS and have never looked back.


I hated that van!

mine would be my last 3 dodge vehicles from the 90s. a 1994 dakota,1997 stratus, and 1998 dakota 4x4. the 98 dakota 4x4 had numerous problems. i ended up trading it in on a 2000 honda civic si. and those are the last domestic vehicles ive owned. all of them were purchased new also. ive owned honda, hyundai and now subaru since. i dont know if i would ever buy a chrysler product again.

A tie between:

A 1996 Plymouth Breeze... Used to have to shut off the A/C to climb hills.....

1997 GMC Jimmy.... seems like we replaced ball joints at the oil changes, and it caught fire on the highway.... and the 4wd system would only engage if didn't need it and would not engage when you did...

2001 Saturn L300. Ridiculous amount of electrical problems. Odometer went out at 99858 miles. All of the interior lights would flash every four seconds, the fuel gauge would drop to nothing then bounce up and then bounce up again, repeat. Water temperature gauge just did whatever the hell it wanted to. Trim problems galore. Actuators for the power windows broke on all four doors, the center console lid was attached with a cheap plastic piece so it snapped off. The leather for the doorcards started to pull away from the door within 2 years. I will say though, the car was mechanically sound. Ran like a champ for 140k or so. Tried to trade it in for my WRX but the resale value is so bad for them that I ended up just donating it to goodwill and ended up with like a $500 tax credit.

1990 Geo Tracker. The heat barely worked, and I threw a rod not long after buying it.

.....ok...another one....

I had a mint green(faded to almost white) 1963 rambler that had lived outside in the rust belt all its life.
3 on the tree straight 6 and lotsa rust.....but it wouldnt die

no radio....holes in the seat patched with duct tape...headliner gone....windshield delaminating...and on and on....and had a big hole(among many) in the passengers side floorboard that I patched with an old piece of aluminum which I hinged with a spring to make a 'trap door' and you could slide a case of canned beer straight in the glove box....the trap door made getting rid of the empties easy

One day I was going downtown and had to cross the railroad tracks....7 or 8 of them and all uneven and rough as hell and almost got across the last one when the engine mounts gave up and the engine dropped and caught on something and the car stopped and the rear end lifted off the ground
I threw it into reverse and cut the wheel hard over and ended up in the grass by the side of the last track.
Took the tag off and walked to the bus stop and took the bus home

Just left the old rambler there

I bought a 91 legacy 4wd wagon for 120. owner thought it had a blown head gasket, but the exhaust was rotted to hell. I kick the rest of it off, (now loud as hell) and drove it for 6 months before selling it for 500.
The car had 197k miles when i bought it, and had rust holes the size of soft balls in each front fender. the oil pan was porous, and weeped about a quart every other day (on the positive end, i never needed an oil change. Bought it in Scranton, PA and drove it to long island on the same day. two months later, drove it to orlando (about 1200 miles) while on the nj turnpike, had a spectacular blow out, turned the car sideways, and managed not to hit anyone. made it the rest of the way, averaging 100 the rest of the way to o-town. (1 quart of oil, and 22 mpg, lol)
two months later, i was driving home from work, and looked down to see my fuel gauge moving. I rolled down the windows and could smell gas, much to my dismay. I pulled into discount auto, and shut her down, got down, and saw gas dripping from somewhere near the gas tank. it was the fuel line going to the engine, right after the 90* bend. I couldnt get a replacement without dropping the tank, so i cut some rubber fuel tubing, and covered it with those screw type fastners. (which worked wonderfully, btw) --all in the parking lot, of course)
two months later i was driving home on the expressway, and as i was exiting towards the toll booths, i put my foot on the brake, and had pressure, and then the pedal went to the floor. My "oh *****" factor was assuradely a 9.6 or so, but i managed to downshift from 5 all the way to 1st and pull the e brake prior to running through the toll gate. i drove it home in the same fashion for the next 5 miles or so (very stupid, i would not advise...) Fixed it (kinda) by splicing in new line where it had rusted through, but was unable to bleed brakes because it was rusted at the bleeder screws.
Mind you, this car was AWD and a 5 speed, and looked like total *****, so i had a lot of fun "racing" it. I would rev my car around civics, and inevitably, they would want to race (remember, my car was loud as ****, having no exhaust, save a CAT) I would suprise the hell out of them however with my putting the car to 4k and dumping the clutch.
Well, it was only a matter of time till my clutch was toast. I continued to drive it until the clutch was slipping when i was at cruise.
At one point, i painted the driver door blue, and the door behind it black. (the rest of the car was gold/turd brown)
i ended up selling the car for 500.
I love subarus.

My mini on the other hand is a turd in its own right.
no a/c, slow, overheats, has weird electrical quirks, and the brakes suck, but man, women love it. I have never had so many women approach me about a car in my life (to include riding in my buddies 76 vette).
On the positive it gets 45mpg and is really friggin fun on corners

My current Jaguar XJR in terms of replacing/tinkering/adjusting miscellaneous parts is probably the worst car I have had. Every time I drive it something needs to be adjusted or replaced. However, when everything is in proper working order, it's by far the sweetest car I have ever driven, it is truly a joy to drive.

Mine would have to be a 1996 2.2L cavalier, 190k on the clock right now. Hasn't been too bad as far as cavaliers go, it's just that its a cavalier.

mine was a 1992 volkswagon jetta, i bought it with no 5th gear, it had a vacuum leak (would stall sometimes when i push in the clutch). when i idled it would bounce between 200 and 1500 rpm. it would never heat up to normal operating temp (even after i replaced the thermostat). when i had it the starter and the computer kicked the bucket at the same time on new years eve at 11pm...so it sat for the rest of the winter, fixed it the first day that it was warm enough to work on it...then sold it 4 days later...bought it for $900 and sold it for $900

ive had a

91 240sx- no complaints
2002 f-150 sport- no complaints
2003 wolfsberg turbo jetta- performance it lacked ( i think do to the infant shoe box size side mount intercooler)
2003.5 G35s sedan- awsome car
2004 wrx- no complaints (just needs an extra gear on the high way)

when i was younger my parents bought a 90-91 hyndai excel- worst freakin car ever, it would leave us stranded everwhere. Once my grandpa had to tow us back home about 40 miles with his awsome 80's supra.
