Today I’m going to talk about the ten worse and best car manufacturers that sell cars in the United States but I’m not going to include the European companies because I don’t advise anybody to buy those for various reasons

I’m talking about all the others now I’m gonna start with the worst ones and number one as the worst manufacturer of car sold in the United States its Fiat Chrysler no surprise there Chrysler had low quality problems to begin with it fooled the Germans when they were damla Chrysler the Germans lost billions

I’m at the owner they dump them and then Fiat bottomed out well it’s like going from the frying pan into the fire having Chrysler and Fiat merged now Fiat itself left the United States decades ago and it came back

but look how horrid their car sales are going now the actual Fiat brand in the United States sold less than a thousand vehicles in June of 2019 fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me well the Americans don’t want to be shamed

so they’re not buying these Fiat but of course the Fiat technology is in many of these Chrysler cars the engines the transmissions and a lot of it is pure garbage I’ve had customers who bought brand-new once the engines blew up at 40,000 miles the transformations never even shifted right in the first place

they’re just terrible vehicles and I would advise to stay far away from them so if you only listen to one thing that I say make sure that you don’t buy a Fiat Chrysler product if you value your money now the second worst vehicles as far as I’m concerned our GM vehicles it doesn’t matter if you come GM GMC Cadillac whatever they’re all owned by General Motors

I remember when I was a kid dad a song what’s good for General Motors is good for the USA what’s a good thing that that’s not a truism anymore because if the country was in the same shape as General Motors we’d be in dire straits then I learned to drive on a Chevy Biscayne was like a boat you didn’t drive it you sailed it down the road

but it was a pretty bulletproof vehicle it ran and ran and ran but it was in Niagara Falls New York so everything rust there and eventually the body rusted out but we saw the tool gauger in a junkyard he took the engine out and put it in his junkyard truck that he went around picking up junk with

and drove us for years and years the engine kept going but sadly if you jumped it today General Motors products just aren’t what they used to be their quality control is there moving a lot of production to China

it’ll move it all over there I don’t know get better quality control but to stop there make it over here many of my customers that had GM products told me they will never buy another one if they bought one that was made in the last eight ten years especially we were talking about small or cars GM never really made very well built small cars overall the company just doesn’t show that they’re making quality products anymore

I’d stay away from them to the number three on the list is Nissan they kind of merged were taken over by Renault a couple decades ago not for me it’s a sad case because when I was young they were called Datsuns and they were little cars that could run forever then they came out with the sports cars the 240 Z’s and they were great sports cars after they merged with Renault

and yeah the early 2000 ones they could be okay that was after the merger but you go 2006 or above there you’re making a lot of junk I had customers with them 40,000 miles the mufflers fall off I mean that’s a simple thing if they can’t even weld a muffler in a car correctly think what they’re going with the rest of the cars I mean horrible transmissions

and they make a lot of CVT transmissions to just fall apart I see more Nissan’s with CVT is going out and then people find out that hey it’s gonna cost me six eight thousand dollars to put another transmission in and the cars worth three or four

and they just junk the car so stay away from Nissan if you value your money the number four on my list Kia I would not buy a Kia not if you’re cheaper you want to save some money they can be okay cars if you don’t drive more than a hundred thousand miles

or keep more than six or eight years just keep your mind they don’t have the quality and you’re not saving all that much money I did a video the other day and I showed that back in 2008 if you got a Kia SUV $6,000 cheaper than the rare for SUV and even though the quality was a lot I worked on one the other day it had 50,000 miles in the air-conditioning had already broken the compressor went out on it

but if you compare a 2019 Kia SUV to the 302 rav4 you were saving less than two thousand dollars buying a Kia and for that small amount of money hey I’d buy the Toyota every time if you went a long lasting cart it doesn’t give me any troubles you don’t buy a Kia,

now the last manufacturer and I wouldn’t buy a car from I rate as low is mitsubishi they’ve always been cheaper made cars many of my customers with Mitsubishi’s at an early age they burned a lot of oil I don’t know why they can’t learn from history they’ve always had cheap piston rings they just burn oil as they age go back three decades ago

I had a customer who wanted blue smoke looked like they were fumigating for mosquitos driving down the road often you can only get parts at the dealer where the prices are extremely high and a lot of people don’t know how to work on them so you go to the dealer you’re gonna pay outrageous prices to get them fixed

so even though they’re cheaper to buy they can be much more expensive to fix and really there’s so much choice these days and decent vehicles why would you go and try to save a little bit of money get anyone that’s a lot cheaper made the piston rings wear out the engines burn oil now yeah they do cost less that’s how they sell them you can get a Mitsubishi Mirage they started like $13,000

that said I’ve had customers that were happy with them for a while they don’t fall apart as soon as you buy them and since they’re a cheaper car people always want to buy something that cost less but if you’re really value your money over time it’d be better off buying a used Toyota

or use Honda then you would be buying a brand new Mitsubishi also probably last two to three times as long as you keep them a long time, now here comes the five best ones number five is Subaru which might surprise you cuz I generally tell people I’m not a Subaru fan

I’m not a Subaru fan but lately they’ve been making some interesting engine designs if you live in a snowy area the system in a Subaru is pretty much one of the best systems out there there are the ones that really want whole-hog

I’m all wheel and four-wheel drive systems I got that down pat you live where there’s a lot of snow but Subaru may not be a bad idea I know in the past that head gasket problems their automatic transmissions or garbage I still tell people today if you really have a choice the Subaru get a standard transmission no number four is Mazda

now I’m not a big miles to fan myself but there are reasons you could buy a ma so let’s say you want a little cute sports car you can’t beat the Mazda Miata for the money there are excellent cars lately my customers with Mazdas they’ve been reasonably happy with the vehicles they make some decent cars of various types

and they’re pretty dependable vehicles now number three on my list of the better made car is ford and I know people might say oh it’s an American manufacturer well their quality has gone up and they’re more or less starting to specialize here in the United States they’re pretty much given up on a car market they’re only gonna be making Mustangs

and they’re gonna be stressing pickup trucks and SUVs which as far as I’m concerned is a smart move on for their smaller cars they weren’t that well made they had problems so I Ford’s sticking to what they do best trucky type things hey I put them number three on the list,

and number two on the list is Honda, Honda actually makes the best engines in the world their engines are even better than Toyotas Honda has less engine related failures on their vehicles than even Toyota Honda’s one on the list for engines

and Toyota’s number two and just like Toyota they have a wide range of vehicles you can buy and here again I’m just have really good resale values because they’re generally really well built cars but as they’re always warned people you got to do a little research on anything because some of the newer Honda’s that have the GDI turbocharged engines have an oil dilution problem

I wouldn’t buy one of those until they ironed it out but that’s not often that honda make big mistakes, and of course Toyota is the best car manufacturer period people go whine all they want say oh they’re not as quality as they used to be well nothing is but they’re still better than all the rest they hold up

yeah you’re gonna pay more for one but there’s the market for you Toyota’s have insanely high resale values why because people know they’re good the market isn’t gonna lie on that if cars are crappy like Jaguars check their resale value,

I get customers if they’re crazy enough they can buy a beautiful look and use Jaguar that’s seven or eight years old for a couple of grand, so now you know the bottom five and the top five car manufacturers in the United States that you can buy
