Question Which car manufacturer do you hate most?

I haven't seen a thread for this and I was just comparing companies in my head- and I realized I hate Chrysler in particular because it seems they have copied various companies in pursuit to look like they know what they're doing.

So... which company do you dislike the most and why? I find it interesting what people think about different things because of either their methods, lack of quality, or even just a history of the company.

*Yes I realized I misspelled Chrysler. :P

I really don't like Mercedes. I haven't liked anything they've made in the last 10 or so years. I liked the original SLK Roadster, but that was really the last thing I can think of.

I agree. It feels like most of their cars are meant for older people now, if that makes sense. I like the SLK 280's though, sweet rides.

I voted Chrysler. I used to do valet, I also currently serivice car rental companies (fix stone chips) - I have sat in almost any (Regular, non exotic) car you can imagine. I loved the valet job because I really got to drive all years and makes models of cars. I think everything Chrysler has made up until about 2 years ago is absolute trash. To add, although I haven't had a chance to check as I've only been in one, but a brand new Dodge Charger's door glass is concave and causes distortion of your view outside the window. Not very logical for a car. At least they aren't GM putting laminated door glass in so that when you're in an accident you get stabbed with huge shards of glass instead of the more preferable small chunks.

I also work at a warehouse dealing exclusively with Mopar, and it's irritating as all hell to see how much money they waste shipping things. It's not surprising they had almost gone bankrupt seeing as how poorly they are run. In defense however, I can't imagine any car companies are much more efficient.

Example :




A 12x8x7" 3 pound box shipped in a box-pallet with the dimensions of 48x42x32" weighing in at 40 pounds by itself. This 3 pound box cost them like 200 times the amount to ship in that box than by itself or through UPS.

That sounds like a fun job, the valet one does. And yes Chrysler is garbage, and, IMHO, it makes me so mad whenver I see a new one because the logo and even the freaking tail lights are so dang close to those of an Aston Martin. Pisses me off more than anything. While although I hate them with a passion, I can say my least favorite car of all time is a Chevy HHR. That car is just flat out ugly.

You're telling me they use that giant @$$ box to ship that little stapler-sized box??? Who's dum that's running the place that put dummer in charge of shipping? Assassinate him. I take that back, assassinate both of them. With a pencil.

I chose Chrysler. For some reason, I just don't like the looks of their cars.
