The Ford Pinto debuted in 1970 and was sold for just $2,000. However, with this low price came sacrifices in quality and safety. Those involved in rear-impact accidents often found the car engulfed in flames, and the company chose to pay settlement fees rather than recall the vehicles and fix the problem. Once this plan was exposed, the company was forced to recall the cars. The car went out of production in 1980.
