What car have you LEAST enjoyed
Obviously from recent threads some would say their A3 but what about those of you who happen to like your A3. What is the worst or least enjoyable car you have owned and why?
I'll start the ball rolling by admitting that I once owned a Triumph Dolomite. This was back in 1975 when cars were no where near as well made as they are today. It was not bad to look at and the interior was very pleasant, but the reliability was something else. It only had two fuses covering the whole of the electrics on the car. When I collected my nice shinny new car I managed to get about a mile down the road and switched the button on the gear stick to engage overdrive. Suddenly everything stopped working. I walked back to the garage - no mobile phones in those days - and they picked up the car. It turned out that the wire from the overdrive switch just dangled out of the bottom of the gear stick and had got caught and snapped thus blowing one of the two fuses. This happen a number of times after that and I just carried a box of fuses.
After that it just went downhill. The ride was very shaky as high speed and it eventually turned out to be that the alloy wheels were not completely round!. That car spend as much time at the dealers as being driven by me. And in those days the dealers were less than useful. No loan cars or other such luxuries.
I got so cheesed off with it that I changed it after a year for a brand new Mk1 VW Golf. What a difference. Nothing mechanical went wrong that Golf in the 4 years I had it. The only problem was some rust on the bottom of the doors and the tailgate and the dealer got a VW engineer to have a look and he agreed for it all to be repaired at no cost to me and that was before any warranties on bodywork or painting.
Although I've looked at and tested numerous cars since then I have always stuck with VAG products.
