The top 10 cars to AVOID!

Sell your vehicle for free with :

Here it is – the top 10 most used automobiles you can buy in 2024!

We've partnered with the team at Warrantywise to learn which 10 cars they rank as the least and trucks you can buy in 2024. To compile this list, there are a couple of things to consider concerning this data.

For one, all designs included in this list are less than ten years old, so they're all relatively new, and the manufacturer warranty has expired for all cars and trucks consisted of. The list also omits vans – we're just taking a look at cars here!

The concern is, which cars and truck will come out on top? There's a stereotype that Italian cars and trucks are infamously – will we see a load of Alfas and Fiats appear in the top 10? And on the flip side, will we see any ever-reliable German brands appear in the countdown?

There's just one way to learn – stick to Mat to see on your own!

      Watson my vehicles are not in the so called UK. But give an opinion. It’s got hundred thousand kilometers not miles. It’s auto. It’s got electrical faulty parts which need replacement plus some suspension parts to be replaced small cosmetic damage which may need shop repainting ultimately … safelight needs to replace the windshield meaning the windshield is cracked. New tires. New brakes. And some servicing. Sourceable parts are 3000us or about plus 2000 quid then factor in sourced labor cost to replace parts and service we talking some pricey repairs. So what do u think it’s worth factoring all repairs. It’s a lexus is300 sport cross…

      I think back in around 2004/2005 they drafted in a new design team, one of which designed rolls Royce. After that the reliability has been on par or even better than a lot of other brands. They still hold the reputation of being unreliable though. Bonus for me as this keeps the prices low and I’m looking for an Alfa for my next car 😂
