I've driven a few bad ones... '88 Ford Tempo, 99k, this thing was a turd, disgustingly slow with shot struts all around. Each bump would have you bouncing for a minimum of 4 seconds. Gas engine that idled like a diesel. Sloppy shifts. But I rather liked the plush maroon seats and the dash was tolerable.
'89 Ford Probe GT. Gorgeous car, and I drove it in '98, and it was always a car I had secretly loved as a GM nut. Then I got behind the wheel... Toasted throwout bearing, radiator fan on a toggle switch, turbo failing... Not to mention the idiotic turn signal lever and crap, but I didn't mind the gauges.
'94 Toyota Tercel. Bright blue, with black vinyl seats... NO AC... In the summer... Only the front driver speaker worked, and it was blown... Wait, a 4-speed manual? Running on 3 cylinders... You literally had to bounce it off the rev limiter and then quick-shift to the next gear to keep it from falling on its face... It was a shop car for a crummy buy-here, cry-here dealer. We literally abandoned this car, with no plates, key in the ignition, in the parking lot of a high-end resort. A week later, we brought it back. It was such a POS that nobody even wanted it!
...And every GM vehicle with a Rochester carb. Period. Eff that.
