1971 Ford Pinto 2.0 from North America
To me this car resembles what is was to be poor in the 1970's
Some of the problems are: the doors jam shut when the hinges either bend or the bushings wear out. I have crawled across the seats in this car to get in and out many times over the years. The quarter panels rusted out when it was four years old, holes at six years, lost stuff while moving at ten years. The windows leak in car washes. This car is underpowered, in 1978 the rear tires froze in two inches of ice in grand forks, ND and could not break free. Literally almost froze to death that time. Happened several times, but ice melt helped. this was my dads car in the 70's. Dad parked blocks away so people would not see it. Lots of sad memories. on a serious note: I would pay thousands to watch each be crushed and melted. But not my dads, it just sits in the shed covered in bird droppings. Fitting really. But then we all have our opinions, don't we.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
