29: 1996 Ford Taurus
The 1996 Taurus is one of the most lampooned vehicles in history. Ford took what was a winning formula and completely threw it out the window with this generation of the car. Consumers couldn’t get over how much of a radical change had happened to the Taurus. Every inch of the car was an oval, and Ford incorporated this into the design. The problem was that consumers didn’t need a car that was this radical, and the Taurus never recovered from that (via Road and Track).
This generation of the Taurus was also home to many issues, including transmission failure. Ford would address these reliability problems but it was not enough to bolster the image of the car. The Taurus would not last much longer after this generation, and part of the reason is Ford had lost the core Taurus customers.
