Using reliability and safety reports plus resale values, Forbes put together a list of 10 used cars to steer clear of.

Forbes released a list of 2008 and 2009 model cars not worth buying used, based on data they compiled from “multiple sources including reliability surveys, safety ratings, resale values and our own experiences road-testing the vehicles over the years.”

In other words, people told Consumer Reports and J.D. Power & Associates that these cars have problems…

  1. BMW X5
  2. Cadillac STS
  3. Chevrolet Aveo
  4. Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon
  5. Chrysler Sebring / Dodge Avenger
  6. Chrysler Town & Country / Dodge Grand Caravan
  7. Dodge Nitro / Jeep Liberty
  8. Jaguar XF
  9. Jeep Wrangler / Wrangler Unlimited
  10. Lincoln MKS

For the details on what’s wrong with these models, check out the Forbes article.
