11. Fiat Strada
One of the last models Fiat offered to US buyers before it left in the early ’80s was a futuristic compact hatchback called the Strada. The car looked fantastic and had a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine (via Autoweek).
However, it was also poorly put together and prone to rust. That didn’t help Fiat’s reputation. After just two years, Stranda was pulled from the market. Interestingly, Strada (known as Fiat Ritmo) proved successful in other parts of the world.
