17. Volvo 262C
Volvo was a company that was on a mission during the ’70s. The car company had been innovating in terms of safety for a long time. Volvo cars were designed to provide safe family transportation. The Volvo 262C is a car that should be remembered for being a horrible choice. From a design standpoint, the engine was lackluster at best, and then you had a sheer lack of quality.
The two-tone paint job would begin to fade, which caused Volvo owners a good deal of trouble, which was surprising considering the brand’s reputation for precision build quality. The Volvo 262C was an epic failure for the brand at a time when other Volvo models were popular. When you think of the Volvo wagons from this era, you have to wonder what the company was thinking with the 262C.
