9 New Cars You Should Avoid Buying

The Car Connection this week released a list of 9 vehicles for 2018 that you should avoid buying. The reasons vary from outdated designs, to lackluster rides and barebone features.

See below for the list of vehicles to avoid, and which alternative vehicle is recommended. As always, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle, CarsDirect and NADAGuides to see if the best prices local dealers are offering right now.

TrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides are the quickest 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.
