January 2, 2014
As with anything manufactured, not everything can be a masterpiece - sometimes there's a few duds. And the same is true with cars. Consumer Reports recently revealed their list of the 10 cars they recommend avoiding based on how poorly they performed on their tests.
On the list of the worst performers are the likes of the Chevrolet Spark CVT, Lexus IS 250, Lincoln MKS, and Mitsubishi Mirage. Reasons for why these 10 cars made this list range from uncomfortable rides, bad handling, cramped cabin room, and confusing controls.
|Vehicle||Price as Tested|
|Chevrolet Spark CVT||$15,420|
|Lexus IS 250||$43,823|
|Nissan Versa Sedan||$15,490|
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
