5 Car Brands Only Stupid People Buy

5 Car Brands Only Stupid People Buy


rev up your engines today I’m gonna talk
about the five worst sports cars out there and with the trends of modern
society they’re selling less and less sports cars now since they don’t sell so
many sports cars many manufacturers that still like sports cars they put their
high level of technology in things that often break rather quickly they may be
fast cars but they break down fast too you don’t want to buy one where the
value depreciates like a stone plummeting down Niagara Falls or one
that breaks down all the time now one sports car not to buy is the
Maserati GranTurismo a new one will cost you about a hundred and thirty three
thousand dollars and immediately it’ll be worth about eighty thousand
dollars when you drive it off a lot it has a Ferrari built flat crank v8 engine
it’s fast there’s no arguing now and you can get a used one pretty cheaply if you
look around but that’s because they cost a fortune to maintain and they
break down as they age now I don’t believe a bunch of crap that you get
from other people on the internet because as with any sports car
especially the high end ones you get false praise all the time because the
guys that are reviewing them half the time hey they were flown to Italy to
road-test the things and of course they’re gonna say glowingly Oh best car
ever drove handled lalala these guys aren’t buying them their not paying to fix
them they’re just having fun driving around in them and in this respect you
certainly can’t believe most of the owners because they spent all that money they don’t want to admit to you that they bought an endless money pit so
they’ll tell you it’s a great vehicle but in the real world no they aren’t the
more exotic a car generally the more problems you’re gonna have I mean
Maseratis been a verge of bankruptcy for decades they don’t make enough cars and years ago when they partnered with Chrysler and
they were kind of files a junk and it fell apart they can’t mass-produce cheaper cars and their fancy sports cars it just don’t
hold up the next money pit sports car not to buy is the Mercedes
sl450 you get a base one it’s about $90,000 in about five years you
can kiss goodbye about $55,000 and if you really have to have one day lease
the stupid thing you know how much more they’ll cost to lease it then you get rid of
it don’t have to pay for repairs if you buy one be prepared to lose a whole
bunch of money just in the lost value itself and then some people think oh you
get one of those mg ourselves the fancy ones and then won’t lose money as much
ah they lose money at the same exact rate the resale values are exactly the
same as the non amg yeaht the amg ones are fancier they go faster stuff of
course you pay more money for but they depreciate just as badly engine oil
leaks head gasket leaks they’re not like those old solid German cars you could
buy decades ago that would run forever with very little maintenance
these things are maintenance pigs and they break before their time take most
things you see on the internet or even in print with a grain of salt when they
talk about it because Mercedes spends a lot of money advertising also Car Talk guys don’t really know that much about cars are they’re
dishonest don’t say how great vehicles are cuz they’re not buying them they’re
not paying to fix them not just drive into new ones around and hey most brand new cars worked pretty good when their brand new and being a sports car of course they
only sell a limited amount and put the modern high tech that often breaks in
them and he sold even less sports cars their regular cars and SUVs there aren’t
that many of a lot there so there’s always a market for people are gonna buy
really expensive cars rich people well the next sports coming out to buy a
Chevy Camaro certainly not in a stratosphere like the previous two cars
in two years they pretty much depreciate about 45% in value
tell you they’re not great made vehicles when you look at the sales alone Ford
sells a ton more Mustangs and Chevy does Camaro they don’t make all that many of
them and they’re a GM product quality is certainly not number one at that company
steering column wiring goes out they get early coolant leaks and if you don’t
watch you’re gonna boil your engine the quality just is in there
and for the money they’re asking don’t buy one zl1 Camaro starts at 62 thousand
dollars it was one thing when I was a kid and you bought a brand-new Camaro
and the thing cost like $3,500 and it had a solid engine you get a standard
transmission and their v8 lasted quite some time but there were only $3,000 if
I was forking out over 60 grand for a car let me tell you one of the last
things on my mind would be to spend it on a GM Camaro product they just cost
too much money for what you’re gonna get when I was young all the kids in high
school wanted to have one right well what high school kids got $64,000 to
throw on on a car these days not in my neighborhood
now the next sports car not to buy is the Tesla Model S yeah we’re going into
electric cars now but it’s a true sports car that thing is super fast it’s much
faster than even a Dodge Challenger with the Hellcat engine with 700 something
horsepower now aside from problems of recharging electric cars I’m gonna talk
about that here the thing is these things have very little resale value
customer mine decided he wanted a gilt one so he sold his fancy Lexus to
another customer line and he bought a brand-new Model S that the original
price was 124 thousand dollars he bought it from the original owner and it only
had 15,000 miles on it paid forty five grand
don’t went from one hundred and twenty four thousand dollars to $45,000 in only
fifteen thousand miles and electric motors in themselves are simple but the
setup that they have the integrated drive unit on those things that burn out
and quite a few of them early and it had to replace them some of them more than
once they can do all the PR in a world that they want but if they’re not
holding up guess where that shows up in a resale value and these have really bad
resale value it’s a cool-looking car and then it’s electric so all the techie
guys want to get something like that but we’ve got the quandary of any sports car
did back into my last since 2012 so they were making it for eight years and
they’re averaging about 20 something thousand a year that they’re selling so
this isn’t a mass mass-produced car that they’re gonna sell millions of cars to
us I can’t base their existence on a Model S that’s why
they’re pushing the model three but now that they’re gonna be making them in
China the price will probably come down somewhat it can make a whole bunch more of them on an actual assembly line instead of intense in their parking lot
in the United States so the Model S yeah it’s a sports car it goes real fast
costs a whole bunch of money but it depreciates fast and that’s probably one
reason that Toyota really doesn’t make any sports cars they make their money
making SUVs cars and pickup trucks the Toyota 86 their little sports car not
even a Toyota it’s made by Subaru in a Subaru factory put a Toyota emblem on
sharply car but hey they’d have to build anybody Subaru makes it the new Toyota
Supra that’s just a BMW roadster made in a BMW factory that’s not the new what
Toyota really other than they put toyota emblems on them, the Supra recently had a recall for bad welds well who made the recall BMW had to make the recall cuz they’re
the ones who built the vehicle and the law is whoever builds the vehicle has to
put the recall so even though you bought a Toyota Supra the recall was done by
BMW personally I think Toyota is watering down a name doing such things
but at least hey they’re not spending a whole bunch of money on research and
development to make a sports car that hey they’re not gonna sell that many of
them anyways stick to su recent cars and pickup trucks nonetheless sports car not
to buy is the Jaguar f-type yeah Jaguar beautiful looking cars no arguing at and
there’s zippy cars no I’ll get out either but there are also cars that fall
apart before their time Jaguar which is now known as Jaguar Land Rover it’s one
company first they got bought by the Indians at Tata the Indians gave it a
try but it wasn’t working out too well with them they were losing billions
so Jaguar Land Rovers is half owned by the Chinese but sadly the quality
control still continuing to go downwards recently a couple of months ago Chinese
citizens who had bought these things went and protested in front of the
headquarters of Jaguar about how poor the quality of these things are and when
you get people in a communist country going and protesting in public
especially how about Jaguars that really tells you
something about the lack of quality in these cards and it can also shows you
how inside our world is becoming that now the British luxury car company is half owned
by Communist China the Communist Chinese are complaining about how there’s such
poor quality in these luxury Jaguar Jaguars historically cars are very
expensive to maintain that’s just the way that they are and a resale value is
in the real world don’t believe half of the values that you get in books or
dealers that are selling used cars and certainly pay no attention to any of
those websites that say oh they’re showing you yes you got a good deal
there’s the best price on this car it is just a bunch of made-up nonsense to try
to sell you stuff and much more money than it’s worth I mean me I kind of had
hope for Jaguar the Chinese buy everything but I thought hey maybe the
Chinese will make the quality go up well I guess it’s a curse company because if
the Chinese are protesting in China how poor quality Jaguars are I guess there’s
no hope for the company in a long run a lot of the experts we’re even saying hey
if they were smart they would just drop the Jaguar line entirely don’t make any
of those at all and just concentrate on the Land Rover because Land Rovers are
extremely popular world right they have a lot of problems too they can be
endless money pits in their resale values or garbage but for some insane
reason in the United States it’s become like the yuppie mobile to drive to drive
around in one of these Range Rovers that’s certainly a big change in society
but as society changes looks like Jaguar just didn’t follow
with the changes they’re still making undependable cars that break down and
have horrible resale value decades and decades they keep making the same
mistakes tonight you know five sports cars that you shouldn’t waste your money
on if you’ve got your money and peace of mind hey if your friends nuts enough to
buy one buy a tank of gas and let them drive it around with you for a while I
have some fun but don’t throw your own money into one,
so if you never want to miss another one of my new car repair videos, remember
to ring that Bell

  2. I informed the Porsche driver that the dealers were laughing at him. I guess that's not the image he paid for. Buy a Toyota and get some real respect

  3. There is this car YouTuber that bought a amg mercedes benz sports car. He drove through a large puddle of water after a brief rain ( The water wasn't deeper than an inch or so ) and the dumb thing sucked up enough water and locked the motor up and bent several push rods. I'm not sure on the cost but to order a motor to replace it would have cost 65 to 70 thousand. Needless to say he got rid of it but used that money he got from insurance to buy another almost identical one. Now he bought a used Ferrari after selling that amg junk.

  4. Scotty, would you buy a 2013 Lexus GS with a rebuilt V6 by Lexus technicians with 50k on the rebuilt engine with Lexus extended warranty?

  5. funny to see the perspective of a modest man, I myself spend 5'000$ per year on insurance only, almost 800 for a minor service, but my income allows it

  6. CAMARO &
    MUSTANG USED CARS ARE ENDLESS 🤑MONEY PITS…SAME IS SAME… THEY BOTH ARE OWNED BY YOUNG RECKLESS DRIVERS WHO ABUSE THEM💥THAT'S A FACT JACK..😎

  7. Also never buy a lotus

    Written before watching idk if he mentions it but its definitely an honorable mention in this video!

  8. 4:30
    $3,500 in 1970 is $23,214 in 2019. Brand new Camaros start at $25,000 so you're not that far off. And the base Camaro today is probably going to be faster and more fuel efficient than the base Camaro of 1970. Probably last longer too if you don't beat the hell out of it.

  9. Scotty, the future is either leasing, or "renting" for a trip like Uber, etc. Let someone else eat the depreciation and problems. The older I get, the less I see the wisdom in OWNING a car.
    ESPECIALLY the new one's with endless computers and gizmos to break. Whatever happened to just "Driving".

  10. Sorry Scotty but that tesla model S P100D going from 120k+ to 45k with only 15k miles just doesnt make any sense at all

    This is how we know your getting a bit old 🤷‍♂️

  11. Gee Scotty, you didn't mention mine: the Dodge Viper. I had a 1998 Blue/white 500HP monster that I shipped from the U.S. to here in Europe. Talk about "endless money pits." Also had to put up with the constant discomfort of having my feet roasted in the footwell from all the engine heat. But hey, I had the good fortune of having the car stolen less than a year after bringing it here. And get this…the thief was killed when he lost control while being pursued by the Guardia Civil. It was estimated he was traveling AT LEAST 220 kph when he crashed. At least I got some insurance money from it. LOL!

    Edit: Forgot to mention that I bought the car used with about 30k miles on it, for less than half it's original value.

  12. Scotty, Love your videos…. wish you had been around to have preventing me from buying my '73 Vega GT back in the day. I have to wonder whether you haven't missed your calling however…. After seeing so many of your segments, I'm wondering if you shouldn't have been an orchestra conductor. There's a whole lotta' hand movement going on???

  13. Watch me flex on how I bought a local one owner 94 Toyota Celica fastback on Craigslist for $600.00 with no issues. Not a $350.00 deal like Scotty's but beggars can't be choosers.

  14. Not to worry Scotty, I bought a BRZ/GT86 but I remembered what you said about its crappy Subaru engine so I LS swapped it 🤣

  15. My 2013 C63 AMG has been bulletproof, with the exception of fuel and tyres. Zero problems, but… still nice to have that warranty!

  16. All those sports cars are rolling garbage pile of junk and endless money pits, junk yards 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  17. I love jaguar and the F,type is made in Solihull UK, not China Scotty, only the investment is Chinese as far as I know. I have friends who work in the factory on the Ftype, as dec 2019

  18. The third gen Camaro was the last good one, 87+ in particular since the sbc went roller cam.
    My dr has a brand new maserati, he's 75 give or take a few years, I should offer to do the maintainence for half off 😁

    Commie jag, the new overpriced, less dependable Yugo.

  19. According to scott, there shoukd be only 2 types of cars on the road in yhe whole world, everytning else is trasg.

  20. Don’t feel bad if you buy one of these cars used and keep it for a few years you’ll spend just as much money as if you bought it brand new.
    Scotty might say because it’s an endless money pit.

  21. Why do you call people stupid all the time. I know people don't do any thinking about buying some cars but that doesn't mean they're stupid. I watch all your videos and most people don't know about buying a new car. Nobody is stupid they just don't know about cars. If they like the car great for them.

  22. Of all the cars I owned, the 1990 Plymouth Laser was my favorite. I drove it everyday in all sorts of CT weather, many days of which was to Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT. I gave it to a friend in 2008. The body frame was rusting due to the salt on the winter roads and at the beach. The engine and transmission were still perfect after over 230,000 miles. The worst car was the 1970 Triumph Spitfire which was my wedding present to my wife. That car broke down nearly every month. I bought the shop manual so that I could work on that car. We sold that car after 5 years of repair heartache. My favorite second best car is my 2008 Chrysler Sebring hardtop convertible. Even after over 140,000 miles, the only problem was a fuel inject that went bad at about 120,000 miles. I am still driving that car till I find a new hardtop convertible or when Geely makes the Terafugia(the flying car). I also love my wife's 2017 Subaru Outback. It rides and feels more luxurious than the Mercedes cars my rich relatives drive.

    Scotty, what is your opinion on these cars that I mentioned?

  23. Hey Scotty, I bought a 2011 Camaro SS 2SS with only 25k miles for $18k. Interior looks brand new. How do you feel about the 5th Gen Camaro, specifically 2011 Camaro SS?

  24. Scotty you didn't put the Dodge Challenger or Charger (Chrysler products) in this video. So are they good sports cars?

  25. It’s like children mould these cars 🚗 i will never buy new. Why can’t a engineer build a car cheap and easy to repair and drive .. shout out to early models 🚗 get em scotty !!!

  26. I like the way Scotty likes to brag va hour cars were cheap back then. $3,500 back then it’s about 27k now I’m this Days. People never talk about inflation. I used to make $900 bucks in late 90s now I make less honestly . Make about $1,300 a week this days . Money was worth more b4 than today

  27. "Maintenance Pigs"…lol. our dentist had a Range Rover and he had a For Sale sign in it while it sat on his office lot. I think he ended up trading it in and took a big loss. he should watch Scotty and leased it.

  28. And this is why I daily drive a Honda Accord and have a BMW Z4 as a weekend driver. Keep the car that falls apart in the garage 5 days a week.

  29. Great video Scotty, will you consider doing a review of the "hillbilly gas tank", where they use a modified gas can to fuel an engine. Thanks

  30. 🙏💛😎⭐️👑✨coolest smartest car guru ever ✨😇💫Appreciate & Love ..Ur a Star ⭐️& help me not be afraid of my car ,)
