12 New Cars You Should Avoid Buying

March 22, 2018

This week, Forbes released a list of 12 new cars you should avoid buying, due to a myriad of reasons including difficult-to-master infotainment systems, limited appeal, or poor designs.

Forbes looked at Consumer Reports reliability ratings along with JD Power's dependability and initial quality surveys, as well as their own subjective driving impressions. Fiat Chrysler vehicles accounted for nearly half of the new cars to avoid for 2018

Here is the list of vehicles you should avoid in 2018:

  1. Acura ILX
  2. Dodge Grand Caravan
  3. Dodge Journey
  4. Fiat 500
  5. Fiat 500L
  6. Fiat 500X
  7. Ford Focus
  8. Ford Fiesta
  9. Ford Taurus
  10. Jeep Wrangler JK
  11. Maserati Ghibli
  12. Mitsubishi Mirage

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, 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.
