Consumers often ask variations of “what car brand should I avoid?” or “who makes the worst cars?”
The Law Offices of Michael Devlin does not make any sort of representation about which manufacturer as a whole is the best and which is the worst. Rather, when a consumer has purchased a product that turns out to be problematic – whether it be a $100,000+ luxury vehicle or a $15,000 compact vehicle – we are here to assist the consumer in obtaining a repurchase or replacement that he or she may be entitled to under the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act otherwise known as California’s “Lemon Law.”
Every year, Consumer Reports publishes its list of least reliable vehicles. For the 2021 list the following vehicles have significantly failing grades:

7. Tesla Model S – owners report problems with the build quality of the body, steering system, in-car electronics, and driving range of electric battery system particularly in winter
