When it comes to quality, efficiency, reliability, safety and overall value, these vehicles bring up the rear.
By all accounts, Detroit's Big Three automakers have begun producing better-made, longer lasting, more efficient vehicles. It's a distinct change from the 1990s and early 2000s, when they fell behind their European and Asian counterparts in each category.
"This change is not even a gradual thing," says Christine Overstreet, an automotive consultant and director of Heels and Wheels. "It's like they've said, 'OK, we really want to step it up, we really want to compete, we're ready.' After past years of being so bad, they've really stepped up their game."

Watch the UAW throw a monkey wrench in the process.
I think the worst cars on the road aren’t even cars.
I see them suckas broke down all the time!
Look at that someone put a body on my king quad.
Any news story from Yahoo/AP is highly suspect.
Did anyone expect better products from General Motors (owned mostly by the US government and operated by unions who owe Obama)? Did you expect the worlds’ best products, like they once were?
The first step to improving American products from autos to graduates, is to outlaw all unions including so-called public service unions. Manufacturers would return to America, teachers would care more and and be accountable to parents and taxpayers once again.
The Worst Cars on the Road
Gee, what a coincidence. Those are the same (and only) two car companies that were taken over by Maobama.
I was in Jacksonville this past week and saw a car with a “Obama 2012” sticker.
Did they have a category for which car is most likely to burn your garage down?
Full disclosure: I also own a '98 Corvette Convertible....
Who in your mind builds the perfect car.....Fiat?
I'm talking about before the Government got involved, just in case you want to get DUmmie on me.
Quality control has always (at least from my perspective) been a bugaboo with Chrysler. Back in college, I drove a Neon sport. I loved the zippy little sucker, but boy howdy it was not screwed together well at all! By the time I traded it in, I occasionally had to stomp the floor board with my foot to get it to start. There was a short in the ignition system (that nobody could seem to find) and stomping my foot was the only fix for it.
NICE. Keep that thing, even if you have to swap/rebuild engines, paint whatever.
At one point I revered GM. After restoring a '69 Camaro with a rebuilt 327, it was impossible NOT to revere GM.
Unfortunately, it's not GM any longer. It's a hideous zombie of the the company we all knew and loved.
Toyota is cutting back production due to the earthquakes and tsunami which will affect their US sales. The rum-dums of the media are already proclaiming GM to be poised to take over the #1 spot from Toyota. Incredible the GM chest thumping bravado by US media in the face of Toyota death, destruction and genuine hardship. Nothing like the liberal brand of "compassion."
I omned a new Vega; it was the last GM vehicle I purchased.
Went out today to move my 1993 Caprice Classic Wagon. I have not started it in TWO years.
I put a battery in it, 5 gallons of fresh gas.
Put the key in cranked it for about 15 seconds and it fired right up. Turned on the AC and in about 30 seconds it was ICE cold.
It is the last of the REAL AMERICAN CARS.
It has the 91C Police package.
