Consumer Reports gave the label “Never Buy” to 30 used cars. Today, we’re going to caution you about: The Dodge Challenger
If you’re looking for a cool car, today’s Challenger is almost as appealing as cars from the classic era. However, you will have to sacrifice big on reliability if you choose a model from earlier this decade. According to Consumer Reports, Challengers from 2015 are among the least reliable cars around due to problems with body finish and power equipment. An earlier study pointed to the 2013 and 2014 model years as well.
Please consider reading up on the reliability of this car before purchasing it as a used car, suggests Consumer Reports. https://www.motorbiscuit.com/used-cars-consumer-reports-gave-the-never-buy-label/
