Yes I have. I had some good ones, too. The Scions are all great cars and the Chrysler 300M was a really great car. Same with the GLC, Subaru, Opel and 323. Frankly, I think most cars built before the 1990's were "crappy" cars.

BTW, the worst one, by far, was the 1980 Buick Skylark. I think GM used the owners as Beta testers.
