It's that time of year again. The 2014 models have began trickling into the showrooms, and America's pent-up appetite for a new car is peaking. According to R.L. Polk, the average age of a car in the U.S. is a record 11.4 years. People are starting to let go of their hard-earned money and think about replacing that old money pit in the garage.
But before you do, remember that the bright and shiny new model featuring all the bells and whistles may turn out to be the biggest flop in car history. The following stunning examples show American design and engineering at their rock bottom. The strange thing is that somebody thought they were good ideas. There will be argument as there always is, but most of these cars were so bad it was painful.

There are plenty more where these came from, so stay tuned for more disasters. Unless you are driving one of them, then go ahead and trade it in.
