7 Worst Cars To Gift Anyone, For Any Reason

December 20, 2010

We are finally at the season of giving once again. A time to reflect on the things we wish we had, then again, it can also be a time for thinking about the things you are thankful you don't have.

Funny thing about gifts, most are given with good intentions. Sadly, not all gifts can be a blessing. Take gifting someone a car for example: you have the right intentions by giving someone a car. It is a means of transportation, and you should be thankful someone is kind enough to give you one (if you are so lucky).

Unfortunately not all cars are alike. Some are prone to maintenance issues, while others just have bad stigmas attached to them. It's not usually the persons fault, as most people aren't fully aware of what they are buying. You can always research vehicles on reputable sites like The Car Connection.

This holiday season, we've done some of the homework for you, picking the seven worst cars to give anyone, for any reason.

We'll start the list with what should be fun in the sun, the Saab 9-3 Cabriolet. Known for transmission problems, it doesn't seem to matter whether you have the automatic or manual transmission, both have issues. The ride is somewhat harsh, and don't even dream about really using that back seat. Consumer Reports rates it mediocre in its used car prediction section. Finish it off with knowing that the entire structure flexes. The Saab 9-3 Convertible is essentially a jiggly topless Swedish gift, which is normally a good thing, just not in this case.
