hands down any ford is the worst image car. I would love a hummer right now and they have a pretty good image. Only greenie weenies hate them because they are to big for their girly selves.

A cadillac just screams ,I made it, I'm loaded $, I'm successfull NOT.
it screams I can't afford a Lexus, BMW or Benz so I got this $20k POS instead. Or it screams... I'm out of the ghetto now and I've always wanted one of these.

Show me a new caddy under $20k and Il be buying it instantly you californicating taco lover.

But seriously, the worst image car around HERE would be a toyota prius or honda insight, especially with a "save the earth" or "no more suvs" sticker on it. There are people around here that would gladly put a gun to your head and order you to remove it.

I myself will be buying a used Hummer soon. They are dirt cheap and would work well for me. I know they have a pretty bad image to greenies, but I dont care.

Worst image car perhaps could be the old Jag X-type, which was a rebadged Ford Contour.

Worst image car is probably a rusted 89 Toyota Corolla wagon with "Impeach Bush" "Save the Earth" stickers on it.

Sorry, but the Marauder was saddled with a relatively weak engine (tired quad cam) and had a 4-speed slushox and a tall axle ratio. That car didn't perform well and the sales numbers reflect that.

The CTS-V on the other hand is a serious competitor.
