10 Cars You Should Avoid Buying

Nedless to say, this
is not a car for long rides. It can be very unstable, which makes it unsafe for
the highway rides. It doesn’t have enough power to quickly pass other cars. In
fact, this car has the least power of all cars. Most owners are not happy with
the fuel consumption. For some, driving Smart fortwo is convenient because it
is so tiny and easy to park. But is it worth the money? No, not really.

VAUXALL (OPEL) ADAM
This tiny car might
look cute, but that’s all there is to it. It is incredibly slow, that is the
first annoying thing about it. It doesn’t deliver much torque and power, so you
won’t enjoy the ride too much. They did a good job making it attractive on the
inside, but wait! Don’t fall for the ‘starry sky’. It reflects on the rear
mirror and it will annoy the hell out of you as soon as it gets dark outside.
And this is not something you can fix. We are wondering why they did it and why
they still haven’t fixed it. Another downside is not enough space in the back,
so it will not be a good choice for those who travel a lot.

CHEVROLET SPARK

This small car might
look economic and you might think of it as a good choice, but think twice
before you decide to spend money on it. All right, we can see it’s not a
looker, and it’s certainly not a comfy family car. But that is not the bad
part. What will really annoy you is the noisy engine and overall bad quality of
materials. Not too safe and not good for long rides. Hard to resell later, you
will lose a lot of money.

DACIA DUSTER

When you take a look
at it, you think „Well, it looks quite good“. It does. Dacia surprised everyone
when they made this car. It does seem like a serious SUV. But, wait! Here are
some downsides you should know about before you buy a Duster. First of all, the
AC will drive you nuts, especially the rear unit vent… and there’s no climate
control. The next thing is too much plastic everywhere – inside and out. Not
only does it look bad, but it makes you feel like you will damage something
only by scratching it a bit. You will also hate the hard clutch. And the poor
sensors. Its stability is questionable. All in all, it looks like an SUV, but
it’s a poor man SUV.

HYUNDAI I10

If this is all you
can afford, and you really want it – that’s OK, but be prepared for the
downsides. First, don’t expect too much comfort. It seems that other owners are
not happy with the fuel consumpion, they find the steering quite hard, and all
in all – they wouldn’t describe this car as reliable. Therefore, not a car for
long rides. Also, if you ever want to resell it, be prepared to cry. You will
get very little money for it.

DODGE GRAND CARAVAN

If you compare it to
some other minivans wih a similar price, you will probably see that it is not
that great. Tall owners are complaining that they don’t have enough room for
their legs, and that there is also a lack of space for those riding in the
back. Some also say that driving on bumpy roads is extremely annoying. For the
same money, you can buy something better.

MITSUBISHI MIRAGE

You might be
attracted to a cheap car with the word ‘Mitsubishi’ on it, but don’t rush into
it. This is not a great car for the road. It has issues with acceleration and
passing other cars. Too much plastic inside the car makes it look even cheaper.
There is not much space for those riding in the back, and that is another
reason why it is not good for long rides. All in all, it is not the worst car,
but you can buy something better for the same money.

MINI COUNTRYMAN

When you look at it,
it doesn’t look bad. It is not terrible, but it is not the best car you can get
at that price. First, there is an issue with the automatic transmission: people
who have tested this car say that the automatic transmission is very slow
(manual transmission doesn’t have this problem, though). The cargo capacity is
not very impressive (although there is enough space for the passengers). Again,
not the worst car, but most people who drove this car said they would probably
be happier with something like Honda CR-V or even the old HR-V.

VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE

Volkswagen Beetle is
not the worst car in its class, but you can buy a better one at the same or
similar price. The first limitation is that it is not a car for long rides. It
could be good enough for you if you don’t travel much or you just plan to drive
it around the city. The manual transmission is more responsive than the
automatic transmission, and therefore a better option. If you are a Beetle fan
and like the old classic style (that reminds you of the old Beetle), then you
might be happy with this one. If you’re not, you should consider other cars in
the same price range.
