Cars are getting better and better in quality with every passing year.As a result, almost any car you buy today will last you an unbelievably long time and require minimal maintenance. However, there are some models and variants of automobiles that are best avoided. If you are on the verge of investing in a new car or a new used car, take a look at our list of cars to avoid.

1) Nissan Pathfinder

Not a recommendable purchase, the Nissan Pathfinder has a few substantial flaws like unimpressive interiors, poor acceleration, and reliability. You could find numerous other crossovers in the same budget that do you much greater justice.

2) Chevrolet Suburban

For an SUV in its range, the Suburban is relatively low on power and makes for difficult parking and city-driving experience. At the same time, loading cargo onto the vehicle may be harder than it would be in other vehicles of the category. Better substitutes would be GMC Yukon XL and Chevrolet Tahoe.

3) Lincoln MKS

The Lincoln MKS does very little to make it fit into the ‘luxury sedan’ category. Its performance is below average and the driving comfort does not impress either. The MyLincoln Touch multimedia OS makes for a highly distracted drive.

4)  Cadillac ATS

Somewhere in between sporty and luxurious, yet not a high scorer in either of the domains, the Cadillac ATS might not turn out to be one of your best purchases. While the vehicle delivers well on the styling front and the driving dynamics don’t leave much to complain about either, the engine is a tad disappointing with its limited power compared to other cars in the segment – also the car is a little uncomfortable to get in and get out of.

5) Ford Fiesta

We found the three-cylinder engine and also the rear seat comfort tad underwhelming. The resale value of the Ford Fiesta is not going to be good – only 44% of original value within three years – so if you are thinking of investing in a new one and aren’t too sure of retaining the vehicle with you in the long term, it will not make for a good buying decision

6) Dodge Journey

While the Dodge Journey promises a good drive quality and trunk capacity, it’s a bit unpromising when it comes to transmission smoothness, mileage, and visibility. Also, the safety standards are not as high as they ought to be.

7) Infiniti Q50

The compact sedan, though appreciated for its interiors, visibility, and drive quality, is lacking in important aspects like fuel economy, controls, and driving comfort. Overall, design and performance do not match the standards expected from a vehicle in its range.

8) Jeep Cherokee

In spite of all its flamboyance, style, and sturdiness, the Jeep Cherokee doesn’t match up to expectation in terms of reliability, engine power, driving comfort, and trunk space. The infotainment system, however, is a class apart.

9) Dodge Dart

The car lacks comfort as well as fuel efficiency and falls short on dependability tests as well. While there are good features like smart looks and exceptional rear seat room, they don’t quite make up for the lacks.

10) Mitsubishi Mirage

The Mitsubishi Mirage, in spite of its attractive price tag, offers little value for money when you look at the whole package. Its performance is barely satisfactory and interior feel is anything but impressive.
