God that was a shitty car. Absolutely no pickup and the fabric on the roof was detaching from the ceiling. My dad had it fixed for me one year as a Christmas present.
I had an 88 that my dad gave me and honestly it ranks up to the best among my cars. Rounded over 280,000 miles before getting rid of it. that V6 was all the power I could need and more at 16. Sunroof,power windows thing was nice. Matinence was a bit hear and there over the years but it was built like a champ and she appreciated taking good care of her.

Worst:97 Plymouth Breeze, I almost feel bad for this car, just awful.

future best:2001 740il bmw, we'll see how she goes after 100k

We owned a saturn that we didn't like because the trunk opened every single time my foot hit the switch, I'm not sure why we bought it anyway because my buddy snowmaker had one and it seemed like he was cursed because he alway's got in accident's with it.

Worst--my late mom's old 1981 Oldsmobile Omega--it had somewhat iffy handling and no rear window defroster!

Best--my current 1998 Honda Civic HX CVT coupe. Sure it's 11 years old but I still get 31-35 mpg depending on how fast I drive.

Worst: 1978 Jeep Cherokee Chief
It was a gas guzzling, oil burning, rusty money pit.
Originally cost $900 probably spent 3-4k keeping it running for the 3 years I owned it.








It had some seat problems when I bought it, this was rev 1 of seat repair.


This was rev 2 with addition of stereo that almost rivaled the price of the car (I kept the beads)


Although the back seat was made for fun


My favorite picture of that car

Here it is frozen


With the tent option


In white sands

Re: What's the worst/best car you've ever owned?

Haven't really had any "bad" cars, but as far as "good" ones go, I'm currently driving a 2000 Saturn we bought new.

I have 183,500 miles on it, and for some reason in the last year or so it has started getting 38 miles per gallon. I can't explain that one.

No major repairs, other than general maintenance. I will drive it until falls apart beneath me..
