Not all hybrids are created equal and these seven hybrids wanted to make sure you were really aware of that.
This is a list of seven hybrids to avoid buying if you were in the market for a used car. They aren’t necessarily hybrids from the 2016 model year (although they can be), but just the cars that were the biggest pains to own this year. Why seven? Because 7-8-9, and we think that’s pretty bad-ass.
The hybrid also shares an unfortunate excessive oil consumption problem with its gas guzzling counterpart. All this comes with the marginal upgrades to MPG, sticker shock and more expensive repair costs. If you want a hybrid Camry, you’re better off looking at later model years where Toyota seemed to get their act together.
Unexpected loss of power from the engine and unintended acceleration. Pick your poison when it comes to engine problems in the 2010.
The 2013 C-Max drains batteries like Larry Bird used to drain 3’s. Some owners have had 5 batteries in the first 40k miles.
OK, we’re picking on the Malibu Hybrid here. This “mild hybrid” only gets 2mpg more than the non-hybrid Malibu but costs $1,800 more.
