5. Suzuki Samurai
Although the Samurai has exploded in resale value recently, there was a time when this little SUV was at the center of a nationwide lawsuit. Consumer reports had discovered that the Samurai was prone to flipping. Once that happened customers, start to scurry. The Samurai suffered from the same problem as many other SUVs at the time. It was a box on wheels. With that being said, there were no aerodynamics back then and these vehicles were top-heavy. What made the Samurai even more prone to flipping over was the extremely short wheelbase.
Nowadays, the Samurai is more of a recreational vehicle and most people customize these things. But there was a time when the Samurai was just another SUV on the market and the rollover incident scared a lot of potential drivers. Consumer Reports was later sued by Suzuki as well as Isuzu for pointing out the potential tipping hazards of these vehicles. The automaker claimed that the coverage of the Samurai was unfair and it hurt business. The Tracker was the successor to the Samurai and fared much better in terms of crash tests.
