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.”

  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

Comments & discussion

We welcome your opinions, but let’s keep it civil. Like many businesses, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. In our case, that means those who communicate by name-calling, racism, using words designed to hurt others or generally acting like an uninformed bully. Also, comments that include links to email addresses or commercial websites typically aren't posted. This isn't a place to advertise your business.
