13: 1978-1983 Ford Fairmont
Ford was experimenting with all kinds of different vehicle designs in the 1970s. Some of these designs were great and others were downright awful; take the Ford Fairmont for instance. In yellow trim, this car personified the word “lemon” in every sense of the word. The Ford Fairmont was a notoriously unreliable small car sold by Ford to attract value-oriented shoppers.
Surprisingly enough, there were three variations of the Fairmont: a sedan, wagon, and coupe. All three of the cars managed to attract buyers who wanted a cheap ride, but in the end, sales tanked due to reliability. Ford eventually replaced the Fairmont with the LTD and the Escort, both of which became immensely popular cars.
