10: Chevrolet Lumina
The Chevy Lumina has been a favorite of used car lots for decades, offering dirt-cheap transportation that will run a long time. But reliability isn’t the most important thing when it comes to a vehicle as sometimes you want quality too. The Lumina is far from being a quality driving experience. Drivers know this if they’ve ever seen the paint flake on one of these cars. Luminas were notorious for the paint falling right off of them, on top of transmission failures.
Chevy marketed the Lumina as an entry-level family car, but it was eclipsed by Toyota and Honda. Few people wanted to opt for the outdated and ugly Lumina when they could just go across the street and get an Accord. Chances are the Lumina will go down in history as one of GM’s worst failures, and most drivers from the ’90s agree.
