There are around 265 different new cars for sale in the United States for the 2015 model year with options as unique as the buyers they seek to connect with. While some offer outstanding reliability or interior comfort, others excel in driver engagement and fuel efficiency. Some cars just lag behind the pack in nearly every measurable area. That does not mean that they are bad vehicles, rather only that competitors in that segment are offering something hands-down better.
Here are 10 different vehicles we do not recommend buying in 2015. Some will soon be replaced with all-new models.
Dodge had high hopes for its Dart compact sedan upon the car's model-year 2014 debut. The slickly styled four-door has a nice interior featuring a strong UConnect infotainment system, but its multitude of engine options, none of which earn strong marks for smoothness, can be confusing to buyers. Overall reliability has been below average. Try the Hyundai Elantra for generous standard features at this price point or the Honda Civic for its strong blend of build quality, handling fun, efficiency and reliability.
