"TIME" MAGAZINE'S "50 WORST CARS OF ALL TIME"

Posted by: Laurence Harmon on 10/1/2010

A companion piece to its recent listing of the TOP 50 WEBSITES (2010), "Time" magazine lists/describes/pictures the 50 WORST CARS OF ALL TIME.
 
Just to whet your appetite, here's the "Times" list of the worst cars since 1990:

1995 Ford Explorer
1997 GM EV1
1997 Plymouth Prowler
1995 Fiat Multipla
2000 Ford Excursion
2001 Jaguar X-Type
2001 Pontiac Aztek
2002 BMW 7-Series
2003 Hummer H2
2004 Chevrolet SSR
 
And if, by chance, you're the once-proud owner of the '03 Hummer H2 (#9 on the list), here's "Time's" review:
 

One struggles to think of a worse vehicle at a worse time. Introduced shortly after 9/11 — an event whose causes were tangled in America's unquenchable thirst for oil — the Hummer H2 sent all the wrong signals. It was/is arrogantly huge, overtly militaristic, openly scornful of the common good. As a vehicle choice, the H2 was a spiteful reactionary riposte to notions that, you know, maybe we all shouldn't be driving tanks that get 10 miles per gallon. Not surprisingly, the green-niks struck back. A Hummer dealership was torched in Southern California. The H2 was also a PR catastrophe for GM, who happened to be repossessing and crushing the few EV1 electric cars at the time. It all contributed to GM's emerging image as the Dick Cheney of car companies.
