Below is our Top 5 List of cars to AVOID. These vehicles have received sub-par ratings compared to other vehicles in their class. When you get a quote at to confirm prices and dealers in your area, avoid these under-performers.

5) Scion iQ – This car has a few issues that have concerned reviewers. Many remark that the cabin is cramped, the rear seat is less than impressive and the car lacks any sort of acceleration. So use your deduction skills and stay away from the iQ.

4) Dodge Dart – There was a lot of effort into the redesigned Dodge Dart, most of which was unnoticed in the final project. Sure it is a redesigned vehicle, but the attention to detail is simply not there for the premium price Chrysler charged for the Dart, compared to vehicles in the same class.

3) Chrysler 200/Dodge Avengers – Once again, an average product with little refinement and a big price tag. Dealerships can’t give them away and there is a reason why.

2) Nissan Armada – Reliability numbers have really hurt this vehicle. Paired along with the highest ownership cost in the class and 13MPG fuel economy, the Armada under performed and under delivered.

1) Lincoln MKX – Lincoln’s SUV’s have performed well in the past, but he MKX has a few issues, say the analysts. They remarked that the handling is loose and the My Lincoln Touch control system is glitchy. Wait on the MKX and find your dream vehicle at today!

5) Ford Fiesta ST – This car is a freak of nature. Ford only equips this car with a six speed manual transmission, along with a direct injected 1.6-liter four cylinder. Weighing in at 2750 pounds, this little race car is a fun and economical drive.

4) Mazda 6 – One of two Mazda’s on the list, the redesigned Mazda 6 based on a 2010 Shinari concept, is a thing of beauty and style. The redesigned interior looks like you are in an $80,000 Audi, and it drives even better, say analysts.

3) Honda Accord – One of Honda’s flagship vehicles, the Accord never seems to disappoint. It’s 16 valve, 2.4 Liter inline-4 or the 24 valve, 305 liter V6 engines give you the responsive driving you desire.

2) Volkswagen Golf – The 5 door Golf still continues to provide value, handling, and speed, everything you want in the hatchback. If you are looking for a bit more than the basic models, don’t forget the turbo diesel versions of the Golf and TDI.

1) Mazda 3 – Mazda’s second car in our top five list and definitely worth it. The redesigned Mazda 3 is stocked with style and amenities, including an infotainment system with a central command knob and a heads up display speedometer that displays its data onto a transparent pane on the dash.
