42: 1990 Ford Escort
The small Escort had its work cut out for it as the Honda Civic was dominating the compact car world. But Ford decided to throw a car together and see what happened. The Escort of this generation is notoriously bad, with cheap interior materials and an engine that could barely stay operational (via Repair Pal).
If you ever had the privilege of driving one of these, then you know how much of a headache it was to keep it on the road. Ford would continue to sell the Escort for decades but it didn’t do much for the company’s image. The car was lacking in so many areas that it just didn’t make sense to keep it on the road.
