5 Used Sports Cars That You Should Never Buy

Imagine if something bad happened to the new car that you just bought.

That would really really suck!

Now I’m gonna show you five sports cars that you should never buy.

5 List Sports Cars You Should Never Buy

It’s crazy fast in cheap as the last part of this list is you will get screwed over.

Audi TT Mark

Audi TT Mk1

Small German sports car for under $5000 , paired with an impressive 250 horses sounds too good to be true right?

Well, you are very right.

The Audi TT Mark one is one hell of a bargain that you don’t want to buy.

I mean for starters the TT was notoriously known for its life-threatening snap oversteer.

Basically this means that if you lift it off the throttle in the middle of a high speed corner.

The car would willingly begin to slide out of control.

Making it very easy to wrap your life around a tree.

Many TT’s became a victim to this problem causing a series of fatal accidents.

As a result outter recalled this model for suspension adjustment.

Added a bigger rear spoiler for better stability at these higher speeds

But this wasn’t the only problem.

Both the v6 and four-cylinder model had premature timing chain failures.

Too many faulty electrical components… you get it by now, this car sucked.

You know what else sucked? people think this car is fast.

Mazda RX-8

Mazda RX-8

Remember how the RX-7 revolutionized the world and showed everyone that rotary was king?

Remember when Mazda discontinued the RX-7 and replaced it with the RX-8?

Yeah… I do too and everyone still hates Mazda for it. Do you?

Not only did they take a beautiful looking car and exchanged it with something as ugly as a Prius.

They also forgot the best part of the motor… The Turbos!!!.

The renesis rotary engine from the rx-8 is a much lower build quality than the old 13B

Is commonly known for warping issues.

Mazda was forced to extend the powertrain warranty because it was so unreliable.

And before I forget they’ve also got some sick metal shooting Takata airbags.

Along with the laundry list full of other problems.

Pontiac Solstice

Built between 2005 and 2009 this car was the last of a dying breed.

The Pontiac Solstice was definitely a looker, but not so much a goer.

Competing against the Mazda Miata, this car did okay?

It weighed 2,900 pounds and still felt heavy somehow it crept to 60 in a whopping 7.2 seconds.

And it had more under-steer than a Subaru.

I mean it just lacked that final level of refinement that other sports cars of its time had.

Not to mention the infamous ignition switch defect that recalled over 1.4 million GM cars.

This fault would abruptly cut power to the car or even deactivate the airbags causing thirteen documented deaths.

No matter how great the affordable price tag may look.

Either make sure that this issue has been fixed or just avoid the car at all costs.

Mercedes SL 600

Now before we get into the fastest and most deceiving car on this list,

I have a question for you…

What will drain your bank account and leave you single?

That’s The R129 Mercedes SL 600.

What while this car looks great and goes like a bat out of hell.

Are you in for one hell of a rollercoaster when it comes to keeping the car in shape?

The kitten Slayer V12 pumps out an impressive 394 power.

Rocketing this car from zero to failure in only 5.8 seconds.

Keeping this engine alive is a very expensive proposition.

With parts being hard to find, repairing this car is a total nightmare.

I guess it’s like they say, “There’s nothing as expensive as a cheap Mercedes”.

BMW E60 M5

Who doesn’t love a little detent power in an EM back.

Sorry to break it to you.

Buying an E60 M5 is practically financial suicide.

The 500 horses that you get with this car acts more like a band-aid.

Band-aid for all the credit cards that you’ll be taking out to keep this thing on the road.

I mean don’t get me wrong.

This car looks phenomenal and drives like a champ when running right.

But the rod bearing don’t last long.

The throttle actuator suck the SMG pumped winds until it fails.

And the list just goes on… and on… and on…
