Most modern cars are well-thought-out, dependable pieces of machinery. The modern car industry punishes the brands that take quality control and product development lightly. However, every once in awhile, there is a model that is a joke for its lack of power, quality or design. It looks like the engineers and designers missed the point when making certain cars.
Even some well-known industry names, big companies and luxury brands have problematic models. So here are 30 cars you should avoid at all costs if you want to save money and your nerves.
Available as a five-door hatchback or a compact four-door sedan, the Mirage is inexpensive, starting at just above $13,000. Of course, for that kind of money, you can’t expect too much. The Mirage comes with limited equipment and a slow three-cylinder engine. The transmission choice is between a manual or a slow shifting automatic, and the power goes to the front wheels.
Simply, the budget-priced Mirage feels like it’s below the industry average. Those people who bought it have criticized its interior design and materials. They’ve complained about the painfully slow performance and quality, too. So, don’t consider this car if you are in the market for basic transportation.
