For those planning to buy a used car soon, check this list (at the bottom) published by Consumer Reports of the worst used cars that they wouldn't recommend you to buy. If you don't want to waste your money on a troublesome car, stay away from these vehicles:

  • BMW X5 with the 6-cylinders engine
  • Ford Flex with 3.5L EcoBoost engine
  • Chevrolet Cruze, the 1.8L engine model
  • GMC Acadia
  • Chevrolet Impala
  • Lincoln MKT, the EcoBoost model
  • Chevrolet Uplander
  • Mercedes-Benz GL-Class
  • Chrysler PT Cruiser
  • Mini Cooper S
  • Chrysler Town & Country
  • Mini Countryman
  • Dodge Caravan
  • Saturn Outlook
  • Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Saturn Relay
  • Dodge Journey
  • Volkswagen Beetle or better known as the New Beetle
  • Ford Explorer, the V6 model
  • Volkswagen Touareg
  • Ford F-250 & F-350 diesel trucks
  • Ford Fiesta

Consumer Reports doesn't specify exactly what are the issues with these vehicles, but they do assure that, according to their Annual Auto Survey, and at least 3 years of reliability data they have of each of these cars, they are the worst of the worst. They also mention that this list was based on vehicles year 2004 through 2013.

For my part, I'm surprised to see on this list the GMC Acadia and the VW Touareg, I thought they were great luxury SUVs, but I was wrong. So if someone reading this, owns or has owned any of the vehicles previously mentioned, and would like to share your experience, either you agree or disagree with this list, we'd love to know it.

The question now is, what used car to buy then? In case you are wondering, what are the best-used cars and SUVs you can get for less than $1000, according to Consumer Reports, please follow the link to know them.
Just be baby.

Cars that you should already know that are crap:

- Chevy Impala
- Chrysler PT Cruiser
- Dodge Caravan
- VW Beetle in any of its models
- Saturn Outlook

It is not strange to see the VW Touareg, beautiful luxury SUV, but like most VW's and German cars, complete crap.
Best car deals and a lot of affordable pre-owned vehicle available! Love it!

Yep, it does exist, it is ugly and very rare to find.

Looking for some affordable car for my son!
