What’s the difference between a bad car and the worst car ever? Not much when you’re going to the shop to buy one. Of course, everyone has their own preferences, but there are some clear reasons to avoid many car manufacturers – and don’t worry, there will be plenty of options left over at the end of this list.
Whether the quality to quantity ratio doesn’t match up, or the list of problems just falls far too long…we’re writing this list of the worst for you.
This car has been called a “resale disaster,” and their sales have plummeted to no more than 50 cars per month. That’s enough of a red flag to not elaborate any further.
Despite being a luxury vehicle, this car’s reputation has gone far downhill – and according to many customers, so has its customer service.
3. Land Rover
Drivers say that they spent more time in the shop than off the road in these off-roaders this past year.
4. Nissan and Renault
This was a doomed crossover of two poor quality brands from the start, but their offspring was truly the worst. Customer reviews of their lovechild have not been kind.
Despite its status, Mercedes cost the same as other luxury cars but don’t handle the same responsibilities as well. Save yourself thousands of dollars.
These cars are a cheap thrill, but their reliability long-term is poor and the parts to repair are expensive.
This tiny car is going to cost you everything you have, so if your line of vision goes right over its head, best not to ever lower your sights to its level.
Chrysler is not made of quality parts. But more importantly, it’s ugly. Why anyone would bother with something that looks like this and is made of that, we’re just not sure.
Anyone considering buying a Dodge is probably not in it for the quality in the first place, but if you know how poor their support and repair service is, it’s not going to save anyone money in the long run, either.
Well, Volkswagen has already proved to the world that they can’t be trusted no matter how good they seem (they intentionally installed a device designed to cheat its way through emissions tests). So whatever comes next, it shouldn’t be confidence in their….well, anything.
Ford has recently let slip that they’re expecting to cut over $20 billion from operating costs – and you don’t want that cut to affect the car you buy from them.
