What is really the world's worst car?

Lemons, rustbuckets, heaps, bombs... whatever you want to call them, there is something strangely fascinating about bad cars.

A Forbes magazine article entitled The Worst Cars of All Time
lists 14 cars in a nice little slide show with a short explanation of what's so terrible about each car.

Among other, the list included the following gems:

  • AMC Pacer (as featured in Wayne's World!)

  • 1970-1972 Citroen SM

  • 1958-1960 Ford Edsel

  • 1971-1980 Ford Pinto
  • 1978 Honda Accord Hatchback
  • 1971 Mazda RX-2
  • 1979-1984 Oldsmobile Delta 88
  • 1984 Pontiac Fiero
  • 1956-1968 Renault Dauphine
  • 1957-1962 Sachsenring Trabant P50
  • 1981-1991 Yugo GV

The criteria for the Forbes article included that the cars had to be:

  • Made after World War II (there were too many terrible cars to consider before then!)
  • Unsafe; poorly considered, styled, engineered, or marketed; public relations disasters -or any combination of the above

Interestingly, Time magazine ran a feature on the 50 worst cars of all time (to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Ford Edsel), which is by definition much broader in scope.
