10 cars from 10 years ago that you forgot

10 cars from 10 years ago that you forgot

The car market is changing rapidly. Models arrive, some leave, sometimes only after a short work. For buyers of used cars, searching through online catalogs or dealerships can bring surprises.

Here are 10 examples from the last 10 years that you probably forgot…

Acura CSX

The Acura CSX was the most affordable Acura of the early 2010 years, a lightweight version of the eighth-generation Honda Civic. In its final year (2011), it introduced a 2-liter four-cylinder engine producing 155 horsepower and 139 lb-ft of torque. We appreciate this car because of its pleasant operation and reliability.

Chevrolet HHR

The retro style car used “à modern” was intended as a model of the Chrysler PT Cruiser. Obviously, the Chevrolet HHR is not a car like any other. The founders of small crossovers? Maybe. Its 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine produces 172 horses.

Dodge Caliber

Before Dart, the Dodge compact was Caliber, a practical model with its spacious hatch and trunk. If you are interested, consider the Rush version with a four-cylinder 172-hp 2.4 liter.

Dodge Nitro

The Jeep Freedom Cousin who didn’t last long either, Nitro was fascinated by its very angular shapes, but more than that? Slow packing, overuse, unquestionable quality and so on: drivers were quickly disappointed. Dodge later preferred to place a bet on Safari, which was less expensive and more popular with the family.

Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Can’t find a new Ford Maverick? Go back in time not to the old Ranger but to the Explorer Sport Trac, a kind of cross between an SUV and a loading truck. Like Explorer, it released a 4.0-liter V6 and a 4.6-liter V8. The latter is the most interesting of the two and uses less!

Honda Crosstour

Many remember the Feature of the 2000s, but prefer to forget Crosstour in the next decade. If the structure is not too disturbing (!), You will get your hands on a solid, well-designed five-door crossover. In the same way, consider the original Toyota Venza.

Jeep Commander

The Jeep is now back in the three-tiered SUV unit with Grand Cherokee L, Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer). Ten years ago, another was dedicated to buyers. Like the Independence of most rooms, the Commander offered five or seven seats, but it was slightly longer than the Grand Cherokee of that era which shared its unified structure and suspended complete independence.

Lexus HS

If it is a unique hybrid, the HS 250h was intended to be a sedan with a casual look. Its fuel consumption is normal, but driving is very boring. No wonder Lexus changed this style with CT.

Mitsubishi Efforts

Mitsubishi has already released a medium-sized SUV, though it still has five seats: Endeavor. Only one engine was on the menu, the 3.8-liter V6 delivering 225 horsepower. All-wheel drive is good, but with four-speed automatic transmission, fuel consumption is poor.

Volvo S40

The S40 compact sedan did not meet the expected success, mainly due to lack of space. Still, in its final year it loaded a 227-hp turbo-cylinder engine and its seats, as usual from Volvo, were above average.
