8: Ford Aspire
Like it or not, Ford had a working relationship with Kia Motors in the 1990s. The fruits of this relationship were the Ford Festiva and the Ford Aspire. Competing directly with the Geo Metro, the Aspire was notoriously unreliable and just plain ugly. GM dominated the subcompact market with the Geo Metro up until 2001 and Ford just lost money with the Aspire.
The Aspire was such a bad car that you can’t even find replacement parts for it anymore. These compact gems are few and far between now, a relic of cheap 1990s transportation at its finest. There were two body styles to the Aspire, a four-door wagon, and a two-door hatchback. The 1990s weren’t exactly a great time for Ford and the Aspire is evidence of this.
