It was some stupid Renault 3.0 140hp SOHC V6. They were a very unreliable engine and thats why most premiers and monacos are in the junkyard. The whole car was actually designed and built by Renault I believe.
Actually the Motor was quite reliable, smooth and powerful for the time. The electrical system was the problem. Most of those cars had issues with the main relay box losing connection, thus causing the car to run poorly/ not at all.

I owned a 92 premier, fully loaded. It was actually a blast to drive (when it ran).

Lol.

Default Worst car I have ever owned

My 2003 Buick LeSabre Custom. This was a large comfortable car with leather seats and a smooth ride with exceptional highway mileage (more than 30 mpg!!). Unfortunately 3 power windows failed (the car was so bad that two of them were under warranty and cost me nothing), the load sensor in the rear end failed (also under warranty), the intake manifold gasket failed (70K miles), the traction control and abs failed (80 k miles), and the transmission failed at 95k miles causing me to get rid of the car after 7.5 years. I had the tranny serviced every 30k miles. During the life of the car I also replaced the rear shocks and the master cylinder. Oddly enough, the battery, which is located under the back seat lasted the life of the car. Lest you think i am a GM hater, my best car ever is my 1993 Caddy Sedan DeVille which I still own and cherish.

DaneJoe,

these are the things you wanna keep an eye out for, you dont need to be adding to a thread that has been dead since 2006!!

please keep that in mind when posting, you dont need to dig up old threads, and next time if you find an old thread that you wanna add something too, such as a issue with your car. Say someone posted a thread about the same issue your having, and they never got it figured out, and the thread is anything over 6-8 months old..what you can do, is always copy the URL and start a new thread in continuation of the old one

Hard to say what my worse car was. I would say it'* between 1994 Geo Metro or my 1980 Bonneville. I'll say it was the cramp Geo Metro.
