If you’re in the market for a new car, you don’t just want to know about the cars worth buying. You should also know about the cars to avoid. There are many cars on the market today that are unsuitable for most drivers. The price or the way the car looks may attract you, but you really need to do your research on how well they drive, how easy they are to fix, and common problems that you may face while you own the car. To help you out, here’s a list of cars that you should avoid in 2017:
The Fiat 500L had a terrible showing on its road test score, and was the lowest rated compact by consumer reports. It also landed the title of worst reliability on any new car. Best avoid this one if you want a nice car that offers a smooth ride and value for money. This isn’t it!
This car has been marketed as smart and social, but was the lowest rated sub compact by many reports. This car is not a smooth ride, in spite of what Mitsubishi would have you believe. The car actually vibrates as you drive because of the tiny 3 cylinder engine. In fact, it was number 3 on the list of worst cars in 2015. Don’t be drawn in by the low price; chances are, you’ll spend much more on auto repair. Avoid this car!
Many people consider this car to be mediocre at best, with it’s poor handling and road performance. It was also the lowest rated mid-size sedan by consumer reports. You won’t get a good drive out of this one, and you’ll find better sedans for the price.
Mercedes Benz CLA250
The company has boasted that this car has superior performance, but that is a straight up lie.
It was the lowest rated compact luxury car by consumer reports. The ride is cramped and stiff, and it makes lots of noise to boot. If you’re going to spend $32,000 on a car it shouldn’t be this one. It’s expensive and drives like something much, much cheaper!
Make sure you take note of these cars and avoid them at all costs. You should be sure to do substantial research before purchasing a new or nearly new car. You want your money to give you value, and that’s what these cars don’t offer. By all means purchase one if you’re looking for a bumpy ride and expensive auto repairs.
