8: Infiniti G20 First Generation
The original Infiniti G20 was a compact sedan marketed to young professionals. The car was meant to compete with the likes of the BMW 3-Series, but it failed miserably. The size of the G20 was the first drawback, the car was not that much larger than a Nissan Sentra. The interior quality was lacking in any real luxury appointments, which was another disappointment for consumers (via Classic).
The styling at the time was dreary, and the performance of the four-cylinder engine was lethargic at best. Infiniti attempted to market the G20 as a luxury sedan, but in reality, was far from it. The automotive press ridiculed the G20 for its small stature and lack of amenities. The reputation of Infiniti never truly recovered from the early mishaps of the G20 sedan.
