7 New Cars You May Want to Avoid
With so many cars and trucks to choose from, a good way to limit your choices is to see which vehicles current owners would not consider buying again. After all, who knows the vehicle better than a person that uses it as a daily driver?
Consumer Reports recently released a list of seven new vehicles that were found to be the least satisfying and ones that owners said they wouldn't purchase again. Vehicles on the list include the Kia Rio, Hyundai Veloster, Jeep Patriot, and Nissan Altima. See below for the full list.
One thing to note however - several of the vehicles on this list are selling for big discounts off MSRP, so if you're really looking for a good deal, you may want to test-drive these vehicles and see if you beg to differ. Make sure to use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the discounts being offered in your local area.
