Dodge Ram Van

Another unsafe vehicle marred in controversy was the Ram Van. The Ram Van had the same basic design for decades, and while businesses loved the sturdiness of the van, safety was not the first priority. These things were prone to tipping over when they had to make a fast maneuver, and the lack of a modern ABS system only worsened things (via KBB).

What was even more amazing was the fact that the Ram Van stayed in production until the 2003 model year. There was a time when big passenger vans were a normal sight in everyday America. Nowadays, these behemoths have been replaced with vehicles like the Ford Transit Connect and the Chevy Express.

Suzuki X-90

The Suzuki X-90 got it worse than almost every other compact SUV in the 1990s. Because the design didn’t make sense, and the lack of safety features was still there. The tall ground clearance meant this short thing tipped over easily. The two-seat design and lack of a passenger airbag only worsened things (via Motor Biscuit).

The X-90 had a bad reputation for safety, and the sales numbers for the thing were very low. It turned out that no one wanted the weird-looking little UTE after all. Unfortunately, the basic design of the X-90 was shared with the stellar Samurai in terms of off-road capability. But the X-90 was unsafe and never sold well.
