Buyer’s remorse is a nasty issue. You may be all excited to buy something and then come to find out, you are severely disappointed by your purchase. This is especially bad when it comes to cars. Very few things are worse than being disappointed by a car purchase. Thankfully, doing a little investigation or research can help you make more of an informed decision and the hope is you can find a car that you don’t regret buying.
Luckily, we have compiled a list of vehicles that you won’t regret buying across a variety of budgets. These 10 vehicles are a culmination of some of the best representations of their respective segments. If you are looking for a car for the long haul, these 10 vehicles will keep you satisfied for years to come.
10/10 Toyota Tacoma
Despite the Tacoma showing some age, it has remained the sales king of the hot midsized truck market. This is because people have absolutely loved the Tacoma. The truck has reliability that surpasses any other competitor and a variety of trims that give it more of a customized feel.
These things along with a strong off-road presence gives the Tacoma a loyal fanbase and not many dissatisfied customers.
9/10 Porsche 911
Porsche is one of the few vehicles that has kept the DNA of the true sports alive. It is essentially the purebred of the automotive industry because of its deep heritage over the decades. The 911’s enhanced driving dynamics and glorious naturally aspirated straight six-cylinder engine make this car an icon.
Not only is the 911 engaging to drive, but if you choose right one, the depreciation is slowed down greatly or even sometimes they appreciate if they are rare enough.
8/10 Lexus LX
Based off the Toyota Land Cruiser, the Lexus LX is a classic Toyota truck with plenty of luxury features. In addition, the LX is built to go longer than most other vehicles meaning that you will be getting a lot more satisfaction over a longer period of time.
It is not uncommon to find an early 2000s LX with high mileage that clearly shows peoples’ love and devotion to the LX.
7/10 Ford Bronco
A reimagined classic, the Ford Bronco surely does not disappoint with its large stature and instantly recognizable looks. There are few better combinations than large tires and substantial off-road capabilities.
The Bronco takes what is great about vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler and then elevated it with robust power options and sheer size. There is no surprise that Broncos have been in so much demand that at times it takes over a year if you want to order one new.
6/10 Nissan Z
Making a well-rounded and accessible sports car can be hard. Yet, Nissan has done exactly this, and we are here to reap the benefits. You won’t be disappointed with a twin turbocharged V6 making 400 horsepower that comes standard in the Z.
This is all for less than $40,000 meaning that you don’t have to spend a ton of money to get a car that you won’t regret.
5/10 Audi RS3
What’s not to like about a turbocharged 5-cylinder engine? The last one in production has found its way into the latest generation of the Audi RS3. Anything that comes with a drift mode is something that is worth buying and keeping.
The RS3 shows that you don’t need a BMW M5 to have all the fun. A small sports sedan that you can toss around never fails to satisfy.
4/10 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
As the large luxury SUV market gets larger, it makes it harder to stand out amidst the Escalades and X7s. Though Jeep is new to this scene, reintroducing the Grand Wagoneer was a ticket to the top for them.
For a luxury SUV the Grand Wagoneer has taken out all the stops when it comes to features. An advanced four-wheel drive system, more than 500 horsepower, and extreme attention to detail make this Jeep a no-brainer.
3/10 Honda Civic Type R
The Type R coming to the US shores was a long time waiting. Now that it is here, it certainly has not dashed any of our hopes. Both generations of the Civic Type R have ample power and have excellent weight distribution.
Some may have reservations that this hardcore hatchback is front-wheel drive, one spin in this Civic will change your mind. With prices at less than $40,000, the Type R delivers fun more affordably.
2/10 Rivian R1T
Trucks are immensely popular right now and the Rivian makes a case of how a truck can do more than you would normally expect. What would normally be a gas guzzler, is a silent and quick truck that is larger than the midsize segment, but smaller than a full-size truck.
Cutting edge technology and all the practicality of a normal truck like an 11,000-pound towing capacity, but all powered by electricity makes the R1T a fan favorite.
1/10 Land Rover Defender
Reimagined for the newest generation, the Land Rover Defender brings some modernity to off-roading. This is not accounting for all the newly added luxury and technological appointments. Regardless, the Defender will take you more places than you probably want to go.
Add in things like a supercharged V8 only makes things better. Three combinations of sizes means that your money won’t be wrongly spent here.
