Default Your worst driven car yet

I know i'll be flamed but most dissapointing has been the Palio 1.2 too sluggish & underpowered for that body shell.. beside that its the Santro..

Here we go. Well it's diff to rate one car but here's a list of cars i consider below average when it comes to driving pleasure. Impressions are based on acceleration, braking, handling/vehicle dynamics put together.

Worst driver's cars : Indica, Indigo, Marina, Wagon R, Fiat Uno, Santro Xing (haven't driven the old model), conti and amby.

Well I have found quite a few cars disapointing to drive but theres only one which takes cake and I can say its plain horrid ..its the San Storm. I have never driven anything more pathetic then that and they promote it as a sportscar duhh.. !

For those who havent read my review you can read it here complete with pictures of the horrible build quality and fit'n'finish.

Well... i remember driving a daihatsu which my dad had got home for a few days. It was in absolutely pathetic condition and had absolutely no brakes at all. He didnt even allow me to change gears..
That was simply the worst car that i have driven. A close second was a tata sierra. It was terrible. Damn slow too.

i had driven a fiat UNO , pathetic brakes, pathetic steering ( no power steering), at the end felt like my hands & legs would burst with pain, jerks at every chage of gear. i think it was fiat's worst output.

above all the car had a female owner, hats off to her to drive such a heavy car.

Hmm...worst drive, that would have to be the Mahindra Jeep SWB (Sorry GTO!). Darn thing was worse than a boat when it came to taking a corner, not because of the suspension, but because it takes a country mile to actually turn!!
