The Worst Cars o...To determine its list of the worst-made cars on the road, Forbes started with the lowest-rated vehicles from six reliability and performance studies conducted this year. Those studies are all from Consumer Reports: The Most Reliable Cars Report; Best and Worst Values Report; Highest Cost of Ownership; Best and Worst Safety Performance Survey; Best and Worst Fuel-Economy; and the CR overall scores for 2011 vehicles.
Any car, truck or SUV named among the worst in at least three of those six total studies made the final cut to be on the "Worst-Made" list. (AP Photo)
