30: Yugo GV (1985)
Few cars have been as lambasted as the Yugo, and for good reasons. The car was just downright horrible. The Yugo had substandard build quality, far beyond the normal scope of an economy car. The buck didn’t stop at its lackluster build quality either, as the car was notoriously unreliable. Although the Yugo was the cheapest car in America, it failed to garner consumer confidence.
Believe it or not, the Yugo has become sort of a cultural phenomenon because of its notorious rep. Even the Hyundai Excel didn’t get as bad of a reputation as the Yugo managed to get in a short period. The Yugo will undeniably go down as history as the most lambasted “lemon” in the automotive world.
