19. Renault LeCar
The French company, Renault, thought it would be a great idea to send its new supermini, which they called the Renault 5 to America. Painfully slow, strangely designed, small, and badly put together, the Le Car soon became a subject of jokes.
In fact, most people considered it to be the worst choice in the compact car class. Renault struggled to sell them and eventually pulled out of the market. Despite the success of the Renault 5 in Europe, the Le Car is considered a terrible failure in the eyes of most American car enthusiasts.
