TopSpeed's 15 Worst Cars of the Decade

TopSpeed’s 15 Worst Cars of the Decade

Ranking the best cars is fun, but ranking the worst is like frolicking on a perfect beach, it just never gets old. Taking into consideration that the year is almost complete, we wanted to rank the worst vehicles of the decade and seeing as how there were so many, ten just wasn’t enough.

Some weren’t very hard to think of, stuff like the Chevrolet Aveo and the Smart ForTwo were obviously going to be on the list, but there were a few that will shock you. If one sentence can sum up our thought process during this evaluation it would be this, ’high sales don’t mean anything’.

Look at the Chevrolet Impala and the Jeep Wrangler. Both sell fairly well, but both are awful. The Impala is fat and drives like a boat and the Wrangler is an off-road machine that most won’t take in their yard, leaving it hard and uncompromising on the road. Despite these two perfect examples of automotive incompetence, both didn’t make the list.

Find out what did by hitting the jump.

Is This the New Brand Loyalty?

Is This the New Brand Loyalty?

With General Motor’s market share dipping below 20% in North America for the first time ever, it’s time to build brand loyalty. As it turns out they may only have to look across the ocean to South Korea. Daewoo has launched the Charm Club for new and existing customers in an effort to keep them loyal.

Members are eligible for bonus service on their cars, free tickets to movie and musicals, and even discounts for new cars. Daewoo President and CEO, Michael Grimaldi is not hiding the purpose of the Charm Club, “Through the launch of this new program, we hope to create customers for life and attract new customers.”

Although this may not be an ideal plan, it’s better than GM’s last try. Since 2005, they’ve installed small metallic badges somewhere on the side of all passenger vehicles for better brand identity. Considering that the last three years have eroded GM’s customers to a record low, the badges may not be working.

Daewoo Gets To Keep a Good One

Daewoo Gets To Keep a Good One

Daewoo is General Motor’s low cost secret. The low-cost labor has been used to produce economical cars that are sold under different GM brands worldwide. Now, General Motors’ South Korean arm has been producing the distinctly up-market Opel/Vauxhall Antara medium-sized SUV for Europe for over a year. GM has rewarded Daewoo by announcing that it will now begin selling their own version of this car in the home market under the name Winstorm MAXX.

Like the current Saturn Vue, the Winstorm MAXX is a lightly changed vehicle from the Opel car. The only engine currently available will be the four-cylinder 2.0-liter turbodiesel shared with the Antara.

Performance Daewoos?

Performance Daewoos?

Daewoo, General Motors’ South Korean arm, is offering options and programs that may be trying to turn the everyday Lacetti into a performance car in its home market. Owners of 2009 Lacetti hatchbacks now can improve the car’s look with factory body kits and 15-inch alloy wheels. While these may be small ways to get the car to look better, it won’t transform a mundane sedan into a sports car. So GM has also set up multiple programs for South Koreans to get the most out of their new Daewoos. This includes local dealers offering classes on how to tune-up a Lacetti as well as offer a lottery for owners to go on test-drives with GM Daewoo racing team members.
