Most Unreliable Cars
Automobiles with a Bad Reputation
Most unreliable cars - Another article that I’ve decided to write in the first person. Although, many would agree, that even without concrete statistics, or evidence to back some of these claims up, assumption suffices when it comes to some of these automotive narratives....
Furthermore, inspiration for this article came as a result of the response that I received from its sister article about “Reliable Cars”..., and a suggestion made to me by a hub member to compose a counterpart article.
I’ve never, in my life, believed the stereotype that gets circulated around, which says that good looking people usually have a nasty disposition, whereas average or below average looking individuals usually have a great attitude. In fact, I’ve met - and know beautiful people that have a disposition to match their good looks, likewise, I’ve met ugly looking individuals whose attitudes matched their looks as well, so this rumor is not in the least bit true. That being said , I think this stereotype can safely be applied to many of the world’s most beautiful automobiles - my article will be about gorgeous cars that have been cursed (some with good reason) with this stereotype of being unreliable.
Furthermore, many of the beautiful vehicles of old days, which were infamous for being unreliable, now days get high marks for performance and reliability....
Here are a list of the most unreliable cars around:
If I had a penny for every time someone dumped on a Jag, I’d be a millionaire - at least! Well, I hope the saying “your time will come” is not true, because I just purchased a 2011 XF. However, Jag’s are amongst the world’s most beautiful automobiles - I knew their reputation, but still, I love British Automobiles - and I love Jag’s.... Although no rumor is entirely without a cause, Jag’s did have a horrible reputation back in the 70’s and 80’s for breaking down quite often.
Automotive experts will be the first ones to tell you that most car companies try to emulate Audi’s good looks - interior/exterior. In fact, most automobile companies give Audi cues to their cars - Honda, Toyota, Nissan, etc. Back in the 80’s, Audi's were not considered the most dependable cars around. Nevertheless, Audi’s themselves have always taken cues from Porsche, making them quite sporty looking and desirable. Just like Jag’s, Audi’s are trying to improve their bad reputation amongst consumers.
If you want to go around telling your friends and co-workers that you actually own a European car, just purchase a VW, they’re one of the least expensive European cars around. What’s great about Volkswagen, is that they own all the famous Euro-brands: Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini and Bugatti. However, their past reputation for making unreliable cars still pursuits them.
Another gorgeous car from Europe, whose bad reputation still pursuits them. BMW and Jag have decided to take responsibility for their past mistakes by offering free regular scheduled maintenance until 50k miles....
Although not quite as bad a reputation as the previously mentioned automobiles in my article, some Mercedes owners have had tales of woes about their Benz.
