    Default Biggest POS car/truck ever made.

    I've never seen it on here, but I figure that it would be good for discussion. What's the biggest POS car/truck ever made.

    My vote if for:

    Chrysler K cars. What incredible oil leaking piles of junk those cars were.

    lol! The K car. I knew a few people in high school that had them. You are correct they all seemed to leak oil like crazy. But, they seemed to run forever. That was the first car that I ever had to do a timing belt on. It sucked. Plus, every one I knew of also leaked trans fluid. When the fluid would get low the car would stall any time you stopped at a light. Add literally a drop of trans fluid and it would be good for another month.

    Renault Alliance
    Puegeot and Citroen any model
    Sterling 825 and 827
    Owned 1 or more of each of these models and none of them have been dependable vehicles.
    The Renault had less than 3000 miles when the engine blew and I spent 9 months fighting to get it repaired under warranty only to have it replaced with another Alliance that blew the engine after 24,000 miles.

    Not to pick on the brand that so many of us love for other reasons, but let's not forget that GM has put out a few duds also.

    Anyone remember the 5.7(? Or was it 5.2?)Liter Diesel engine? The TH200 transmission?

    Apparently the Range Rover and Land Rovers buyers are more than willing to pay the high prices for a fairly unreliable SUV. I guess the status of owning a RR/LR is more than worth it.

    Me personally, I think Land Rover and Range Rover SUVs are ugly as can be, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Very right.. I have seen such cars in high school... It seems to be going well for so many years but I was not sure about fluid leaks

    Our-actually it was my girlfriend's now wife-1980 Chevette
    bought with my help-was a decent enough car
    Yeah it was slow-got much poorer mpg than equivalent Japanese cars
    but it was $5200 OTD vs at least $7500 OTD for an equivalent Honda or Toyota
    The timing belt broke at 5 years 32000 miles
    but it was a not interference engine-what a surprise with such an aggressive cam it must have had-
    so no problem when it broke-other than IMMEDIATELY stopping

    My dad-what a cheapskate- had several lemons
    1958 Ford SW- never bought another Ford-it would have been a 6 cal-overheated from new
    1961 Rambler SW with the NEW HIGH TECH-aluminum block- it blew head gaskets every 3 -4 months-we would be going down the highway smoking steaming-1st time I ever heard dad say MF

    A mid 1970's Peugeot-what a POS that was-always in shop-I changed the spark plugs once-and was stunned when some sort of SLEEVE screwed out with the plug??WTF??

    Now the Rambler wasn't a lemon-other than the horrible head gasket leak warping-and it had really comfortable front seats
    The Peugeot-comfortable seats also-but a lemon thru and thru-just as TB says

    Oh-I did mention these cars were CHEAP to buy-my dad-cheapskate
    He did buy one winner-1965 Fury 3 SW 318-V-8 we-brother and me-BEAT on that car everyday-was still running great after 150,000 very very hard miles-
    WOT it would show 111mph-and it did that often since we had no sense-but plenty of luck-111 on speedometer was probably 105 or so
    So Dodge Plymouth(Cuda 383 1971) soft spot
    1998 suburban-
    1/2 ton

    199500 miles
    River
    Ridge,LA
