These Are 2017’s Worst Cars

Everyone expects good reports about cars, especially if you are about to purchase one for your convenience. At the same time, you should also look at the worst cars that were not up to the mark when tested on the road, reliability, owner satisfaction, and safety. What we are trying to tell you is that you should avoid these cars.

Which vehicles have been classified as the worst cars of 2017?

 Worst Car In The Subcompact Category

The Mitsubishi Mirage is classified as one of the worst cars in the subcompact category despite being the cheapest vehicle available on the market. This car has a weak three cylinder engine that vibrates and also delivers sluggish acceleration. Also, it is not the best car to handle. The interior does not look great; rather, it gives a feeling of being cheap and insubstantial.

 Worst Car In The Compact Electric Category

The Nissan Leaf and the Tesla model S have improved significantly ever since they were introduced. However, the Mitsubishi I-MI EV still maintains its mediocre performance. Its manufacturers are not substantial and, therefore, if you are considering owning an electric vehicle, you should invest your money in one of the other models available.

 Worst Car In the Compact Category

The Fiat 500 L has a below-average reliability. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that this car is also listed among the worst cars in 2017. The flat seats, and odd driving position, and a dismal test score on the road plus the fact that it gives the driver a stiff ride make this car a contender in the list of the worst cars of 2017. Customer satisfaction is also low, and many owners wish they had never purchased this car.

 Worst Midsized SUV

The Dodge Journey is an unreliable vehicle because it delivers poor performance. The car’s V-6 engine has the worst fuel economy for its class. Although the manufacturer is selling it at a discount, don’t be tempted by the offer because it is not even fit to be parked in your garage.

 Worst Car Entry-Level

Ever since its introduction in the market, the Mercedes-Benz CLA hasn’t received the best reviews. This entry-level model has an unresponsive engine, the power seems to surge abruptly, and has a loud cabin that gives the drivers a stiff ride—which is punishing. This vehicle is advertised as inexpensive because it is an entry-level model, but the costs can soar if you want a touch of luxury inside the CLA.

 Worst Luxury Compact SUV

Land Rover has been providing quality vehicles to the market for generations. However, Land Rover discovery sport struggles compared to even some of the small-market SUVs currently on the market. It has everything that a customer wouldn’t want, especially from a manufacturer like Land Rover. The transmission isn’t smooth, and the four-cylinder engine has a spiky power delivery. Considering the history of Land Rover, this is an unreliable model that is also expensive and underachieving.

“Part of us believes the new car is better because it lasts longer. But, in fact, that’s the worst thing about the new car. It will stay around to disappoint you, whereas a trip to Europe is over. It evaporates. It has the good sense to go away, and you are left with nothing but a wonderful memory.” ~Daniel Gilbert

Before buying any vehicle, it is advisable to read both bad and good reviews about the model. This is to avoid buying one of the worst cars.
