Popular car models make list of top breakdowns

On Behalf of | Aug 8, 2019 | Lemon Law |

Before buying a car, you may wonder how often that model tends to break down and how reliable it is. On one hand, you just want to know what type of repair costs to expect. At the same time, you also want to know if the car is going to be more of an inconvenience than it’s worth. You need a vehicle that you can trust to work properly when you need it, especially if you’re buying it brand new.

To help you make your decision, you should know that some very popular car models do make their way onto lists of the most breakdowns in the first years of ownership. Some of the most popular vehicles on one recent list include:

  • The Ford Focus
  • The Fiat 500L
  • The Land Rover Discovery
  • The Nissan Rogue
  • The Chrysler 200
  • The Jeep Cherokee
  • The Tesla Model X
  • The Chevy Tahoe
  • The Cadillac ATS
  • The Chevy Camaro
  • The GMC Acadia
  • The Ram 3500

This is not the entire list, but it does include a number of more obscure makes and models, or cars that are no longer in production. Even so, this shows you just how widespread these serious issues can be. You may love that car when you drive it off of the lot, but are you going to love it if it breaks down in just a month or sends you back to the shop repeatedly in the first year?

It’s a serious concern. If you think that you were sold a lemon, a car without any real value, make sure you know what legal options you have.
