We all spend loads of time researching the cars that people want, the cars that we might want. But, this isn’t fair. We need to give some love to those cars that Americans don’t want to buy as well. After all, while we will never buy these losers, we ought to be kind and give them a bit of attention.

TrueCar, a site that knows who’s hot and who’s hot when it comes to cars, looked into the matter and identified these cars as being the rides that Americans don’t want. The lads at TrueCar created the list by looking at how long specific models sat on lots before being sold.

For example, the average humble Acura TSX Sport Wagon sits unloved on lots for close to six months before finding an owner. This is the longest that any new car waits to be bought. Clearly, Americans don’t want the Acura TSX Sport Wagon.

A bit more popular is the Volvo C30. This, the second least-wanted car in America, sits sullenly on lots 146 on average. The car is so unpopular that Volvo has stopped its production.

The third-most-unwanted car in the US is the Mitsubishi Lancer, which waits 143 days on average despite its cool medieval/physician moniker. However, considering that reviews for the car have been sad with calling it underpowered and dull, this poor, forlorn ride never ever had a chance.
