What is the worst new-ish car you have ever been in?

Bad cars are everywhere, and because of that, you must have been in one from time to time. And if you somehow 'claim' you haven't, well we all know you are hiding a cheeky little secret somewhere, to someone.

What else can bad be defined as? A car just can't be bad solely because it lacks a little in an area like driving or comfort, but instead think of it as more about the overall product, the whole painting, the complete saga of diddly bits of plastic and metal screwed together. Where everything is horrendous, cheap, creaky, uncomfortable and downright just deep in dog---- (can't type that word out, sorry).

Or it 𝘮𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 not be that extreme. But on similar levels. You get the idea.

So share the absolute worst car you have ever been inside of down in the comments below. And to avoid the obviously trashy '80s and '90s economy cars, what you put down has to be from model year 2012 onwards.

Excited to see what's gonna be down there!

  • My Uber driver had a Prius. I considered running away.

    • Would you rather take the uber in a Prius... or this?

  • Pretty much any Nissan economy car. They're just really boring and lack power.

    • I would be glad if I got a Nissan online taxi

    • It’s got a gutless engine, interior is uncomfortable and badly designed, and the ride isn’t great. The only good thing was the infotainment system and even that was a bit dodgy.

  • That's a tough one. I think it's best just like to nominate all of Chevrolet's European models, which were so bad they pulled out of Europe in 2015.

  • RIght I have several candidates here

    Datsun Go and Datsun Go+. The thing has no airbags, later models probably had 1 or 2. The doors are as light as a feather and when you close the boot, there is no "soft material" between the door and the body, just a hard metallic clunk. I used it several times in the online taxi.

    Toyota Avanza/Daihatsu Xenia (2nd generation). Suspension is nasty. It combines the harshness of sports suspension with the wobbly instability of offroad suspension. You need balls of steel to take this car over 140km/h

    Toyota Calya/Daihatsu Sigra. Nasty suspension, its a 3 row car and it doesn't have 2nd row aircon, just a fan. Interior is as dull as dishwater.

    Toyota Agya/Daihatsu Ayla. Not particularly bad on a technical standpoint but the interior is nasty. Yes its cheap but at least make the design interesting. I don't care if its all plastic.

    Mitsubishi Mirage. Basically an Agya/Ayla for twice the price without any real benefits.
