For my "German" submission, here's my 2005 VW Lupo, Made in Brazil. I got this car in December last year, I traded a 2000 Nissan Xterra for it, I wanted out of that one because it had some stuff to get done, also smelled like wet dog and a faint tint of pee. Well it wasn't any better, needed all 5 new tires, I changed the piston rings, all shocks, was an eternal electrical problem, the camshaft sensor wiring is bad, the gas gauge is bad, sometimes it goes down for no reason at all and returns to where it was, sometimes, the first thing I saw and it was really noticeable, it was in a crash, where it was most likely sandwiched between, since both sides look like they are terribly painted an I had to kick closed the driver's door the other day and the Bondo cracked. Has crank windows, no AC AND EVEN THE HEATER HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED. But still somehow my mom likes it so much as our grocery getter she didn't let me sell it yet, it's a small, nimble and practical car for the city, even fun sometimes, it's name is "huevito" or "small egg/eggy". I may keep it for a while longer, I've planned to teach my GF how to drive in it and if she feels comfortable in it I'll let her keep it when I can replace it with another bad decision.
