Cars not to buy: Are you on a tight budget? You might be tempted to go for affordable cars or most used cars, however, here are the 10 cars not to buy in Kenya.
Worth noting, though, is that a car is always as good as you maintain it. In the same vein, variations depend on user to user experience. Here we go:
2011/12 BMW X5
Prior to its 2014 redesign, BMW X5 had many reliability issues. Drivers grappled with faulty climate control, defective fuel systems, and issues surrounding engine parts. Consumer Reports recommends avoiding the 2011 and 2012 models completely, but reliability issues continued with ’13 and ’14 model years.
2014/16 Volkswagen Jetta
This Volkswagen’ has featured many reliability issues since 2010. In the 2014 through 2016 model years, issues with the audio system, interior finish, and power equipment (e.g., windows and cruise control) hurt its rating in Consumer Reports surveys.
The ’10 Jetta featured many of the same problems along with a problematic climate system and other electrical components.
