25 of the Worst Cars Ever Tested

Mitsubishi Mirage

If it had been released 20 years ago, the Mitsubishi Mirage would have been a middle-of-the-pack econobox. But it was released in the U.S. in 2014, and stands out for its tinny build quality, buzzy three-cylinder engine, and cheap-feeling interior. If you’re looking for bargain basement transportation, the Mirage is fine, but that’s about the only good thing you can say about it. Authorities like Car & Driver, Road and Track, and Motor Trend have all consistently panned the Mirage. It’s also made Consumer Reports’ “Worst Of” list every year since it hit the market.
