The good news is that there really aren’t any truly terrible new cars in dealers’ showrooms any more, according to Forbes Magazine.
Even the worst of the lot would be considered superior when compared to some notorious clunkers from the 1970’s and ’80’s.
The notorious episodes from past years of cars out of control in emergency handling maneuvers, or rolling over and bursting into flames following a collision are, hopefully, models from the past.
Dismal, and often hazardous, performance, dubious reliability, and inferior engineering are, again hopefully, things from the dark days of the auto industry.
Even though the awful cars may be gone, still, not all models are created equal.
Of the models that made the Worst-Built Cars for 2012, these cars are not dangerous; they are just considered dated. The top worst cars of 2012 include the following: the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks; the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon, Dodge Avenger, Jeep Compass and Liberty, Smart ForTwo and Toyota FJ Cruiser; the Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
