The Cars People Regret Buying Most, According to Consumer Reports

Buying a new car is always exciting at first, but it can take a little while before you realize your ride is more lemon than luxury. Consumer Reports surveyed owners of recently-purchased cars to see which models caused the most buyer’s remorse.

After reaching out to over 300,000 new car owners, Consumer Reports ended up with a list of seven cars you might want to reconsider before you drive them off the lot. In the video above, autos editor Mike Monticello goes over each one, in seven different categories:
  1. Small Cars: Dodge Dart. Owners cited sluggish acceleration and weak A/C.
  2. Midsized Sedans: Chrysler 200. Owners said that it’s difficult to get in and out of, and has a rear seat that’s too small.
  3. Small SUVs: Jeep Compass. Owners cited feeble acceleration and disappointing fuel mileage.
  4. Midsized SUVs: Nissan Pathfinder. Owners mentioned too many unscheduled dealer trips, uncomfortable seats, and low fuel mileage as common issues.
  5. Minivans: Dodge Grand Caravan. Owners cited rough shifting, uncomfortable seats, and a cheap-looking interior.
  6. Pickups: Nissan Frontier. Owners complained about too much road noise and clumsy steering.
  7. Worst overall: Acura ILX. Less than half surveyed said they’d buy the car again, mentioning a general lack of quality, pokey acceleration, abundant road noise, and a rough ride as issues.
Remember, a good price doesn’t mean a good deal. Always do plenty of research before you decide to put money down on a car.
