Continuing with current trend also, my first car peugeot 306 1.4. 2 head gaskets. Probably a bad example but peugeot's don't seem to stand the test of time. Saying that I had a 207 1.4, 10 plate come in for serving which had just run out of warranty on 27,000 miles with a shot head gasket. French.

Peugeot 106 GTI by far the worst car I've ever owned, pretty much had to replace everything but the steering wheel on it

Apart from one excursion with a Japanese car, all my cars have been from the VAG stable and honestly couldn't select a worst one, as they were all good in their own way, even the Japanese one.

Best head turning car but had 5 head gaskets and 2 x turbos on 9 months

Renault 5 GT Turbo

Most un reliable car ever (plus you had to have the heaters on in summer to cool the engine)

Mk3 Golf Gti 2l 8v.
I do have to point out I've only ever owned Golf's.
I was on the third gearbox after two threw the crown wheel rivets through the side of the diff. The cambelt snapped bending 2 valves and had to replace the coil pack when it just didn't want to start with no prior warning. To be fair though, I did a lot of miles in it and thrashed it everywhere I drove(it was my first car).
I loved that car and still miss it now.

My son's 14 Fiesta Zetac - 2004 model - it was a disaster.
The engine turned into a bag of spanners - it had to go - at a major loss.

I've only owner 3 cars and all have been extremely reliable:

Peugeot 206 1.1 (55bhp) owned 3 years virtually no repairs
Peugeot 206 2.0 GTI (180bhp) owned 3 years no repairs
VW Golf R32 MKV no repairs

In fairness the 206 1.1 had 22,000 miles on purchase, the 206 GTI 180 had 24,000 miles on purchase and the R32 had 15,000 miles on purchase.

Of the 3 the 206 1.1 was the worst only because the 55bhp meant it took almost 20 seconds to get to 60. However it was my first car and I have the best memories from it.

My first car... 1986 nova saloon. 1.0! It was so shite!

It had only one wing mirror... Not because It had come off, no... But because it was an extra back then and whoever bought it couldn't afford the left hand one!

Same with headrests. A pricey extra. So it was risk snapping your head off in an accident!!!

It squeeled like a pig also... Not a car I really wanted to attract attention to myself in.

It fell in a ditch in the end. Don't know how.

Second worse has to be the clio 197... Amazing car to drive and probably still the most fun iv had but it had a new rattle everyday ... And locked me in 2 times with the alarm going I had to drive 10 miles to garage so they could get me out!!!

None of this nonsense with the R tho!!!!
