8 Automotive Lemons


1996-1998 Suzuki X-90

This little two-seater tried to make a sports car out of the Suzuki Sidekick. But the X-90 would have looked more at home in a circus, disgorging a steady stream of clowns.

The compact SUV had a petite 86.6-inch wheelbase and a 95-horsepower four-cylinder engine. Noisy at highway speeds, the X-90 also had a bouncy ride, minimal cargo space, and tiny radio buttons that were nearly impossible to use in the dark. ­ ­
