AutoRevu's Crap Cars Day 7


Lexus LS460L 99 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara 17
Infiniti M35 X (AWD) 97 Hummer H3 (5-cyl.) 27
Infiniti M35 (RWD) 96 Jeep Liberty Sport 27
Porsche 911 Carrera S 96 Chevrolet Aveo LS (manual) 30
Toyota Sienna XLE (FWD) 93 Chevrolet Aveo LS (auto.) 32
Back in April Consumer Reports surveyed owners of many vehicles and compiled a list of the best and worst vehicles, based on owner responses. Who knew the Jeep Wranger Unlimited Sahara was so terrible? I knew the Hummer H3 was a bag of shit, because I actually test drove one 2 years ago. Ditto for the crappy Chevy Aveo. I also drove the M35 and concur it is a wonderful car.

I did some checking into the Jeep. It costs an astounding 32,000 US dollars and has a pawltry 3.8L V6 engine that puts out a rather pathetic 202 bhp. The jeep rides soft but has good 4x4 ability. I know Consumer Reports are biased, but could they be off their rocker a bit?
