QOTD: What Were The Worst Japanese Cars?

40 030 800 800

We’ve been slagging pretty hard on GM lately, so let’s try something a bit different today. Obviously, Japanese cars overall have a better than average rep for reliability (although I’m sure some would object). The object today is to identify the worst Japanese cars, primarily in terms of their reliability and/or durability, although styling, performance and other features are all part of the equation. Now I realize most of them were quite prone to rusting back in the 70s and 80s, so that’s probably a pretty universal quality. The goal is to create a “10 Worst Japanese Cars” list.

One important caveat: Please stick to the actual cars and their issues, keep it civil, and let’s not get into stereotyping their drivers or into related politics. The topic itself should have plenty of scope without diverging needlessly. Thanks.
