16: Chevrolet Lumina APV
Perhaps the most iconic failure of GM was the dustbuster vans of the 1990s. These vans were hideous to look at and even worse to drive. The design was an attempt to take market share from the dominant Chrysler van trio. But instead, the vans failed to garner any real shift in market share from Chrysler. Instead, the van was ugly and didn’t get better with age.
Along with the loping windshield, the van was dubbed the “dustbuster” by the automotive press. Which is another reason why the vans were such a catastrophic failure for the company. It has been said that GM spent quite a bit of money on the research and development of these vans, only to have them fail.
