Used Sports Cars Everyone Should Avoid at All Cost

The process of buying a used performance or sports car should not break your budget. We are lucky to live in times when one can easily find a sports car that is both affordable and reliable. Japanese sports cars for instance can offer great reliability, decent performance for the price and best of all they don't cost too much on to buy either. On the other hand luxury cars like Lexus, Acura and BMW can cost more when they are new but once they hit the used market their prices rapidly plummet down.

Which is when we have the opportunity to get the better side of the bargain. Unfortunately for us unlike regular family sedans most sports cars usually require a lot more maintenance and their repairs are much more costly. Let's face it you wouldn't drive your compact SUV like a lunatic just to prove to your fellow Mustang owner that you are faster than him ? In fact you will most likely car for it for it, more than you care for yourself.

Of course this leads us to the bad sides of owning a second hand cool sports cars. One is the usually higher car insurance the other one is the condition of the car. No one buys a sports car to get from A to B, and most of them are beaten up hard. Some cars handle that with ease ( sub 2000 Mercedes cars and Volkswagen) and some just don't.

Here is our list of used badass sports cars you should avoid at all cost !

Nissan 370Z

What have you done to the Z line ! The Nissan z sport-370z - is not a bad car but it sure does have some issues that are nerve-wracking and it will surely make you think twice before buying a Z series again.
First of, we all know the back seats are just pathetic and the car is pretty useless as a daily, but that is not what you buy a sports car right ? You want fun, speed and reliability !

Unfortunately the new Z car, the 370Z Nissan sports car suffered from steering lock column issues straight from the start. The 2009 and early 2010 models would have left you somewhere stranded or if you're lucky they'll fail at start. Your car can't break down if it can't start right ?
Although Nissan recalled some of the faulty cars, there are plenty of bad ones still roaming the streets.
If you must have a 370z and most of you would love to, be sure to get its VIN and call Nissan to check if the car your are investing in is a subject of a recall. If money is no issue, then go for the 2012 models and newer, they have most of their design flaws removed.
