20. 1975 AMC Pacer -- AMC bet on the wide small car find a following, but it didn't take hold. The performance didn't make anyone want to buy the car either. (Christopher Ziemnowicz, Wikipedia) / HC

19. 1970 AMC Gremlin -- AMC had two failed experiments in the 1970s -- the Gremlin and Pacer. Both cars lacked performance and -- well -- had a strange style. (Photo: RoadSidePictures, Flickr) / HC

18. 2011 Aston Martin Cygnet -- This is just a restyled Toyota iQ that didn't take hold with drivers. (Photo: FaceMePLS, Flickr) / HC

17. 1982 Renault Fuego -- This car had all sorts of problems. It was proned to rusting, had electrical problems and had to be recalled for steering wheels that detached. / HC

16. 1971 Ford Pinto -- Do you need a detailed reason? If you do, here it is: The Pinto turned out to be fire-proned due to its rear-mounted gas tank. (Photo: Aldenjewell, Flickr) / HC

15. 1989 Chrysler TC by Maserati -- As Edmunds put it, this is the worst car built by Chrysler and Maserati. The car didn't have much style or performance. (Photo: Mesatrooper, Wikipedia) / HC

14. 1968 Lamborghini Espada -- The biggest knock against the car is its bizarre style. Car makers made plenty of odd looking cars in the 1960s and 1970s, but this one certainly stands out. (Photo: Harvard Avenue, Flickr) / HC

13. 1974 Reliant Robin -- This car was underpowered and was silly looking three-wheel car. Does it surprise you that it made this list? (Photo: Caroline Stokes, Flickr) / HC

12. 1983 Renault Alliance -- Car & Driver loved this car in 1983, saying it would "be our car of the year." The car -- like many others -- was prone to rust problems and lacked horsepower. By the late 1980s, the car's value was virtually nothing. (Photo: Aunti Rain, Flickr) / HC

11. 1917 Chevy Series D -- It seems a bit cruel for Edmunds to put a car from 1917 on this list, but they did. The Chevy Series D was the first V8 in a Chevy, but it didn't perform well. (Photo: Saucemania, Flickr) / HC

10. 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Diesel -- This car was a warranty disaster for GM. The engine never really performed well and often broke. None of that makes it a driver's dream car. (Photo: IFCAR, Wikipedia) / HC

9. 1957 Trabant -- This was a car built to compete with the Volkswagen Beetle, but it failed to do that. This car was in production for 30 years, but it never mustered up anything special. (Photo: Georg Schwalbach, Flickr) / HC

8. 1982 Cadillac Cimarron -- This was supposed to be a smaller and more athletic take on a Cadillac, but it turned out to be a pathetic concept. Popular Mechanics called it one of the 10 models that damaged GM's reputation

7. 1958 Edsel Corsair -- This is one of the legendary flops of all time. The car turned out to be a marketing disaster after it sold fewer than 10,000 cars in 1958. (Photo: The Brain Toad, Flickr) / HC

6. 2003 Saturn Ion -- Edmunds called it the second worst car of the century because of its poor design and inadequate performance. (Photo: IRCAR, Wikipedia) / HC

5. 1971 Chevrolet Vega -- This car has led a different life as a racer, but for the everyday driver, it faced problems with holding a key lubricant -- oil. That makes it one of the worst. (Photo: MyOld Postcards, Flickr) / HC

4. 1987 Yugo -- This car had a relatively low price, and its performance proved it was worth that low price. The car underperformed and wasn't the most stylish car. (Photo: InSapphoWeTrust, Flickr) / HC

3. 1955 BMW Isetta -- The Isetta used a single-cylinder engine that pushed out a whopping 12 horsepower. To put that into perspective, the Budweiser clydesdales push out 8 horsepower. (Photo: Steinar Johnsen, Flickr) / HC

2. 1974 Ford Mustang II -- This car was one of the more popular cars due to the fuel crisis, but it faced criticism for lack of performance. This Mustang lacked horsepower and power of previous Mustang models. (Photo: Bull-Doser, Wikipedia) / HC

1. 2001 Pontiac Aztek -- The Pontiac Aztek didn't win any fans with its exterior, and the behind-the-wheel performance didn't wow any drivers either. Within four years, sales for the Aztek had dropped off. (Photo: IFCAR, Wikipedia) / HC
