Why is this?
my mom hit her chest on the steering wheel pretty bad, Im sure an airbag would have helped

as for my aunt, she hit her head on the column of the passenger side
which has the airbag sign, so I'm guessing it would have been better if she hit an airbag as well
Glad they will be ok.
Instead of the airbags I would be more worried about why the shoulder harnesses didn't catch them sooner.

Owned 2 Toyota's and will never do so again. Easily the worst cars I've ever had. This is my first GM and I'm pleasantly surprised how much I like it. Owned more Mustangs than anything else.

I voted for Toyota their cars are nothing more than appliances with no soul.

They also let their quality slip in their quest to knock GM off the top rung a few years ago and now its recall after recall.

Mistusbishi without a doubt. they have been the least reliable I have owned followed closely by GM. My Dakota is going strong with 215k miles on the clock.

Maybe I had a lemon base model. Rented it in Holland and drove it in Germany for two months. I never had a fear of pulling into the left lane to pass on the Autobahn like I did in this car. It was an automatic and it didn't shift sometimes unless I let up on the gas and reapplied it. It was a nightmare. Glad yours is treating you well.

Pretty sure Juke has a CVT. That might've been why it didn't feel right to you.

Sometimes, you need to bait them. Is Mitsubishi on there twice?

I think as hard as it is to buy a bad car nowadays, this is mostly going to be a "im a chevy guy so I hate fords" kinda poll.

most everyone makes great cars overall, there are always a lemon here or there, but for the most part cars are solid nowadays.....

Hyundai not bad, but Kia, owned by them, is the worst. Horrible quality, worthless warranties, and thecustomer service dept at Kia lies non stop

I was somewhat conflicted. Mercedes builds a nice car, but the Smart car is absolutely the worst. In a way, I think the poll for that point isn't fair. I recognize that Daimler owns Mercedes and Smart. However, Daimler also holds large shares in Mitsubishi, Tesla, and Nissan.

Also, is there a way to limit a person to voting in a poll only once? At least one user has voted more than 10 times in this poll.

Been hearing complaints about ~2006 and up BMWs. An engineer here bought a new one in '07. Rusted out- as in, rot holes 3" up in the doors and fenders- in three NE winters. Ordinarliy I'd call BS on that... but I saw the car every day. They simply seem to have no put any type of rust prevention in the car

I voted for Mitsubishi they don't offer a lot of vehicles and their quality and reliability hasn't been great either I would have voted for Toyota cause I feel they make very boring cars but since the Frs and the ISF and LSA came from them I had to give the edge to Mitsubishi as worst car brand. I also cant believe that Kia and Hyundai are voted for a lot. They have some great vehicles out now and the best warranty in the auto industry.

Chrysler got my vote. Seems when I have one in my stable it requires a lot of my money to stay running.
