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. Scotty I have a 98 Chevy Malibu 2.4L and all the electronics and gauges turn off briefly while driving, what could be the issue?

  3. I think a major issue to all modern cars is their VERY high price. As a family of seven $350+ for a monthly car payment is, well, stupid. Can you do a segment on affordable new cars? Thanks.

  4. You need to stop calling ppl stupid just because they may not be on the same level as you. Your better than that Scotty. Arrogance is not a humbling virtue.

  5. 1:04 – "Don't believe a bunch of crap that you get from Other People on the Internet."

    Sixteen in the clip and one in the hole, Scotty gonna make some bodies turn cold.

  6. My friend wanted to buy a used Mercedes SL 55 AMG i told him not to touch it, he was like why because if you can buy one new you can't keep a old one running.

  7. Scotty! My wife has a 2008 Scion TC manual transmission. every winter her clutch gets stuck when it's very cold, but after a while of driving all is well. Clutch been replaced by 3 different shops and no can't seem to figure out why. I don't think that transmission fluid has been changed. Any idea? Thanks

  8. The beauty of video games in which you can race around in some of these "money pits" is just that. You don't need to pour money INTO THEM. For that matter, you don't even need to carry the wallet wounding insurance to drive them. Just have enough credits or whatever in game currency you need to buy the car and hit what ever buttons you need for gas, brake, clutch and shift if your into that…and with most game controllers know-a-days, push the stick left or right to steer.

  9. Scotty can I change the low beam lights on a 2011 Ford Fiesta to a brighter light or leds, what I have now are hard to see at night. Thanks

  10. The Tesla "owner" or enthusiast comments are over the top nut jobs claiming they bought two of them because their spouse wanted one too. When you mix Tesla with EV and enviro at any cost you get easy to spot nonsense.

  11. Just did scan codes on two cars to help people. Thanks scotty for building confidence and saving money. I do wish we had a scotty franchise repair shop in every city though. A scotty used car dealership would be good also.

  12. Hey Scotty! Here is another case of Toyota risking their good name by selling rebadged vehicles made by other auto makers. Over here in Europe Toyota sells the lite ace and the pro ace, two types of small vans. These are not in any way Toyota products, only the badges are from Toyota. These vans are made by Peugeot together with Fiat and are sold by both of these brands, they are also sold as Citroen versions. Now Toyota has them in its line up as well, the Toyota versions are also a little more expensive than the Peugeot/Fiat/Citroen models. I don't know what they are thinking over at Toyota these days, shame on them, they should design and build their own cars I think. There is also a larger van made by Peugeot/Fiat/Citroen, they have been building models of this van together for a couple of model generations. In recent years that larger van has come to the USA, you know it as the latest model of the Ram Van.

  13. Basically if your gonna buy a decent sports car for a decent price the Mustang GT is your only choice . 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

  14. Scotty my 1999 Toyota Tacoma has a really high idle (~1900 rpm). I've replaced the IAC valve, tried adjusting the screw, cleaned throttle body, replaced injectors, put in new intake gaskets, replaced coolant temp sensor, and cleaned MAF sensor, and it's still doing it, please help! Getting really sick of my gas mileage being so low…

  15. Every other video Scotty post has the word stupid in it. By the way Scotty, all the car batteries I've ever bought come from Mexico not sitting on a cargo ship for 3 months coming from South Korea.

  16. There is a misunderstanding with the model S, models from a certain year and before depreciated not because of mileage, but because of features not supported by the old hardware.

  17. To be honest the Camaros didn't sell because they were ugly looking not cuz they were unreliable. Mustang are almost the same price.

  18. So if a Ford Mustang has a better resale value than a Chevy Camaro, and that reflects reliability, then using that same logic says that a Chevy Silverado is more reliable than a F150? Chevy Silverado's and GMC Sierra's both have a better resale value. Actually, F150 is one of the worst lol.

  19. Hmm. No Nissans mentioned. Could things be getting better at Nissan? Since Carlos Ghosn is gone maybe it could happen. Renault may have less input now.

  20. Why is the Alfa Giulia QV not on this list? Half of the glowing reviews talk about the thing throwing CELs mid review.

  21. Not one BMW M car on the list. That's surprising heck even if it was I'd still buy one when I can afford it and the insurance. I'll deal with the maintenance later.

  22. I knew it, my Chevy Camaro would be on here. I've already had 8 problems fixed under warranty. First and last GM car I ever buy.

  23. I was pretty sold on buying a 2019 mazda3 hatchback, but then I realized for about the same price I could get a 2017 Alfa Romeo Gulia with AWD and a turbo four. So now im stuck between buying a new car made by one of the highest quality manufactures right now, and an italian car with the powertrain made by dodge. So. Passion or financial stability?

  24. Thanks Scotty I just drove my Maserati back to the lot after a test drive the salesman was mad I watched this video during the test drive lol

  25. I noticed that current leases now say that all maintenance and repair expenses are the leasies responsibilities. What total crap. They can"t resell this crap to anyone, so they increase the cost to the leaser. What total crap.
