I, too, had two of the worst cars.  I actually liked the Pinto, but the
exploding gas tank rumors made me trade it in on a Maverick.  Then I
heard the Maverick had the same gas tank problem.

I had a Chevette, and had the same problem.  It also needed annual brake
jobs and went through tires almost as fast.

The biggest aggravation was the broken alternator brackets, which I
wouldn't become aware of until the battery turned up dead.  The third
time it happened, I charged up the battery, took the car down to the
dealer, and traded it in towards a used Blazer.  On a subsequent visit
to the dealer two weeks later, I was told they haven't been able to
start the car since I parked it there --for all I know, it's still
sitting there.

Surprisingly, we actually see a Chevette driving around the neighborhood
now and then - must be the only good one they made...
