The second worst on the list is stronghold (F) – Get a Ford Motor Company report EcosportOnly 30% of owners said they would buy it again. Consumer Reports said it had a “outwardly wacky design and small-looking wheels.”
Third on the list is General Motors (GM) – Get the General Motors report Chevrolet Trax37% of owners said they would buy it again. “It appears that Chevy’s strategy has been producing a placeholder only under moderation, using a cheaply stacked model of Sonic that is disappointingly built at its price,” Consumer Reports said.
Number 4 in the list is Infiniti Q5040% of owners said they would buy it again. Consumer Reports said the car “offers six-cylinder power for the price of rival four-cylinder engines”. But it “sacrifices fuel economy”.
No. 5 is Nissan Rogue Sport42% of owners said they would buy it again. “Rogue Jr would be a more appropriate name for this small SUV,” Consumer Reports said. “It looks like a smaller version of the regular Rogue, but it’s not sporty to drive.”
number 6 is Infiniti QX5046% of owners said they would buy it again. “The engine doesn’t provide the promised performance or fuel economy gains, the controls are confusing to use, all combined to leave us disappointed,” Consumer Reports said.
Number 7 is Stellants (STLA) – Get a Stellantis NV . report Jeep CompassAlso, 46% of owners said they would buy it again. “It’s not quite up to par in many ways,” Consumer Reports says. “Consider the price, which is usually higher than better competitors, and the result is that shoppers have to be driven in another direction.”
number 8 is Jeep RenegadeAlso, 46% of owners said they would buy it again. Consumer Reports didn’t say anything bad about the car. “Looking at looks and presence alone, there’s a lot to like about the Jeep Renegade,” she said.

Number 10 is the Kia ForteAlso, 47% of owners said they would buy it again. “While it was once one of the best affordable cars in the world, the current model has fallen back into basic transportation,” Consumer Reports said. “It has a tough ride, and its cabin is pretty loud even by the standards of this modest class.”
