1980 something Chrysler LeBaron Turbo. Bought it from my grandmother in law (took it and gave money, cuz she couldn't see at night and still drove by following the white lines on the side of the road) with 32k miles in 1997. Drove in such a way as to never engage the turbo cuz the car shook like crazy when under acceleration. Parked in the garage one night shortly after having bought it. 15 minutes later our garage was on fire. The fuel line had broken and dripped onto something hot and ignited. Burned the garage and part of the kitchen. The grandmother in law, when she found out we got more in insurance for the car than what we paid her, wanted the extra money. She was a piece of work too.
Dodge Intrepid, which was constantly stalling, had to have both the transmission and rack & pinyon steering replaced after the 36,000 mile warranty ran out and before it hit 40,000 miles.
Second worst: Mitsubishi Lancer GT Manual. The clutch went at 30K miles. I replaced it with another standard transmission car where the clutch was still going strong after 100,000 miles when it was totaled by hail.
Every Ford and Jeep I've ever owned, and I've had two of each. Never, ever again will I buy anything other than a Toyota. I drove my '99 Taco for 15 years and almost 400,000 miles, nothing ever broke on it, ever, until the AC compressor finally gave out at mile 393,000 and something. My 2015 now has nearly 80,000 on it and again, no problems whatsoever (knocking on wood as I type).
If you think 'goto' is evil, try writing an Assembly program without JMP.
My Ferrari FXXK. Every time I come out of the store, there are four or five super-models around it, and the cab is quite compact so I can never get more than two in the passenger seat at a time. How can so many people think that we wealthy folks' lives are always perfect.
