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.

I have owned 2 Saabs in the past, an 01 Convertible and an 08 SportCombi, both were excellent quality and I never had a single mechanical issue with either. Interesting Poll, I guess it just depends on your personal experience with the vehicles you have owned.

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
Sensors for the air bags are in the front of the car. So unless something hits the front of the car they will not deploy. Yeah it sucks she hit the steering wheel. But the force from the airbag would have been much worse. Especially if she was close enough to hit the steering wheel. Check youtube for people deploying airbags as pranks. They will launch a person into the air.

And I voted for Chrysler...pure garbage

I had an '04 Saturn Ion as my previous car, and man, that think just went. 180k miles, And I put it through Hell and and back. Imagine the beating it took from the combination of 2 years of high school abuse, 5 years of college, plus all the winters. Never once did I have to make any major repairs. In fact, if I could do it over again, I wouldn't have used it as a trade in. For the 1000$ the dealer gave me, I should have kept it as a winter/daily driver car, but you live and learn I guess.

For what I was used to, and what I had to do to slice the roof for a "roof peel" on that wagon, it was an impressive piece of engineering.

Not monster-truck worthy, but impressive.
