7 Cars Their Owners Can’t Wait to Get Rid Of

Buying a new car is an exciting event for most people, but sadly, not every new car purchase ends in a blissful 10 years of happy ownership. Whether it’s the fault of pushy salespeople or buyers who have unrealistic desires, sometimes the new car experience is less than ideal.

Some people are just unhappy with their cars and drive them for the next several years anyway, but other times, they’re so dissatisfied with the vehicles they’ve purchased that they trade them in for something different after a year or less.

Industrywide, this only happens with about 2.7% of new cars, and it’s not necessarily a judgment of the cars themselves. A new, more desirable version may come out that makes the current model obsolete.

A couple who just bought a new sports car may find themselves pregnant and in need of a more family friendly vehicle. Then again, issues that weren’t discovered during the initial test drive may also come up and get to the point that ownership becomes intolerable.
