    Thumbs down Worst Car Manufactorers on the road

    which would you say is the worst Car Manufactorer on the road at the moment.
    I would say Proton, Lada

    it was Kia, Hyundai and Daewoo but they all have improved alot over the last 3-4 years.

    why pick on manufacturers of cheap cars?

    why not TVR?
    expensive cars that continually break down.

    Pretty interesting to see that your list are all European brands. Is it really that bad?

    they're a bit more specific than that...
    but that's my prejudice rather than objectivity.

    It's nothing new, ttkom. Even back here in M'sia there's been much of a headache for owners of the Gen.2. My colleague who bought one had had his engine stalled (lost of power/functionality) three times in the past 3 months.

    I guess it'll really take time before they really improve here.

    Thus most people would still buy the Wira, Waja or Iswara instead. Not sure what their names are in the UK though.

    *chuckles*, you guys are too much

    I think i've said quite enough on cars already and won't be bashing people heads on the spot, if i can help it.


    Every brands of auto has its lemons. Some worst ones improves while some good ones slides so it is hard to say which car maker is worst(or the best). You have to give time and price range. The questioner should refer to the sticky thread of how to ask question. It's no different from asking which brand of racket is the best or the worst.
