Check this out the car your driving may become a collectors item. Dozens of cars that we're used to seeing on the roadways and car lots will be discontinued in 2016.

In this report from WGN "that more than a dozen car models will be discontinued in 2016 due to multiple factors in the changing automotive market. Some, for example, are repetitions of other models in the family that act simply as “cannibals.” Others were too uniquely designed — or, to put it more bluntly, deemed too ugly by the consumer public."

Here is a quick rundown of the cars will be discontinued. Look and see if yours is among them:


  • Dodge Grand Caravan
  • Honda Crosstour
  • Honda Civic Hybrid
  • Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid
  • Honda Fit EV
  • Honda FCX Clarity
  • Jaguar XK
  • Jeep Compass
  • Jeep Patriot
  • Mini Cooper Convertible
  • Mini Cooper Coupe
  • Mini Cooper Roadster
  • Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
  • Nissan Xterra
  • Scion xB
  • Scion xD
  • Scion iQ
  • Toyota Venza
  • Volkswagen Eos

Are you surprised to see any of those cars on the list? I'm surprised to see the Jeep Compass and Patriot. I love both of those cars. In fact I was thinking of getting one for my next vehicle. Hmmm. I guess I'm looking at the last year production line then aren't I?
