CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.  

We’re pretty spoiled these days. We’re spoiled because new cars, even mass market ones, are all pretty dependable and good. The industry standard has risen so much that you really can’t get away with selling a shitbox anymore. But a few still manage to escape the crusher and join us on the roads.

Last week, I asked you guys for the worst high-volume car of this millennium. What were the cars that you felt were too dangerous, unsafe and uninspiring for the road?

“Tin can” and “rolling death trap” are just a few of the terms you guys used to describe the cars on this list. And if boringness is a crime, let’s throw that on the pile of complaints, too.

Geo Metro (Ichi Bahls)

My friend’s step-mom had one. Can confirm shitboxness.
