The GMC Sierra 1500 looks like a heavy-duty pickup truck, but it’s still received negative reviews due to a number of issues. Among them, the fact that the ride is too rough, the cabin looks old-fashioned, and there’s not enough space for the driver or passengers.
It’s no surprise then that nearly 5 percent of buyers return the GMC Sierra within the first year of use.
When Suzuki wanted to try and find their way into the American pickup truck market, they simply decided to copy an existing model from another car maker and slap a Suzuki logo on it. Namely, the Nissan Frontier.
Obviously, this move didn't go well, as savvy consumers quickly picked up on the scheme and avoided purchasing the Suzuki Equator. The cars were being returned or sold within less than a year after being purchased.
Nissan Titan XD
A heavy-duty version of the Titan pickup truck is Nissan's Titan XD. As you probably guessed, XD means it can be pimped up with a powerful Cummins diesel engine and a Pro 4X off-road package.
Even though this hefty truck is certainly very powerful and has extremely comfortable 'Zero Gravity seats, it still falls short against competitors when it comes to payload rating and towing capacity. The Titan XD has lagged behind in what is already a very competitive truck market, leading 8 percent of owners to sell the car within the first year.
The 2019 Buick Enclave is a car that didn't move up too much with the times since it's basically a copy of the 2018 model with some slight updates. Consumer Reports decided to name this one as another victim of their “least reliable” category.
Luckily for the Enclave, the 2018 model, which it's based on, did have many benefits, from a quiet and comfortable interior that fits up to seven passengers up to massive cargo space and some really cool tech features. However, as far as 2019 was concerned, bad reliability was enough to get this model returned by several buyers within the first year.
Another Toyota pickup truck that is returned by 5 percent of owners within the first year is the Tacoma model. A light-duty pickup truck, the Tacoma just doesn't give drivers the experience they're looking for in a high-performing truck.
To increase sales and thwart return rates, Toyota is planning to release a new Tacoma model in 2020. We'll have to wait and see if it's as good as they claim.
