Default what's your nightmare car?

As a complement to ROVER2003's thread on dream cars, let's have some fun with the opposite - cars you would least like to own. I'm imposing a rule here though - only choose from models that are available to buy brand new today...
Here's mine for starters: Ford Focus - clear proof that Ford have lost their Mojo after the brilliant originality of the Mark 3 Escort, Mark 1 Sierra and original Focus. Today's offering is (IMHO) dull, derivative and easily mistaken for a dreary Korean hatchback. Highly subjective of course, but that's the point of this thread.

Horrendous though the Multipla was, we're only talking cars that you can buy brand new today in this thread, so I'm afraid the Multipla doesn't count

I rather like the Juke...


I'm going to restrict myself to a car I've driven, and that was the C2 Hoodlum Edition I had as a loaner when the 75 was in Wilcox having money chucked at it.


It went like a stabbed rat, but the novelty wore off as soon as you got to the first pothole. Or, slightest, tiniest deviation from sheet-of-glass smooth road surface. The tyres were a couple of turns of making tape around the wheels, the springs had been replaced with bricks and the seats were made from concrete. It was excruciating.

That pretty much covers it for me. Having been scarred by Citroen ownership (C4 grand picasso) I'll never own one again anyway....and they have made them even uglier with the 'cactus'.

The first one was ugly enough to be strangely attractive. Then they cleaned it up a bit & ruined it.
