Have you ever wondered what the worst-rated car products are on Amazon? Neither have we. Yet, the crew at Donut Media were itching to find out, and in the name of science, they investigated some of the worst car products on Amazon so that we don’t have to. 

While none of the items highlighted here are illegal; they are criminally bad. We will go over a few of them, but we will let you enjoy Donut Media’s little experiment for yourself. Hopefully, by the time you finish reading this, you’ll know what to avoid the next time you go on an Amazon bender.

Auto Park Laser Guided Parking System

Anyone with a multi-car garage that they also use for storage or who owns a large SUV would most likely be interested in a product that helps them park as straight as possible. Not being able to get out of your car because you parked too close to the kayak you haven’t used in 10 years is not how anyone wants to spend their first moments back home. Considering that this parking system uses lasers to guide you in, it must be pretty good, right? Sure, in theory.

The problem with the Auto Park Laser is not the principal. It is probably because the company that makes this product did not put much effort into quality control. The product page for the Auto Park Laser is full of 1-star reviews from users that say the product was broken out of the box. What’s worse is that even though this product is still currently for sale, the company that makes it has gone out of business. Stay far away from this product.

Accmor Car Trash Can

Accmor Car Trash Can for cup holders. Is this the worst rated car product on Amazon?

In a perfect world, we would never be in a situation where we had trash in our cars. Sometimes, a messy car can even be dangerous. An in-car trash can product is a convenient way to deal with garbage until it can be disposed of properly.

The thing is, that product needs to actually do the job it promises. The in-car trash can seen here seems to cause more problems than it solves. James points out that he dislikes any car product that takes up an existing cup holder in the video. We tend to agree. Not only does this car trash can take up valuable cup holder real estate, but it also isn’t very big. Its small size means it can’t handle the most common of car garbage: cans and bottles. We would tell you to stay away from this product, but it seems that Amazon is doing that for you as it is currently unavailable.

The hosts in this Donut Media video deal with some products that are way worse than the few we highlighted here. But which product is the absolute worst? Well, that would be for you to decide. We have our picks, but maybe some of you actually need a bamboo cutting board that attaches to a steering wheel.  Just try to avoid chopping onions the next time you’re stuck in traffic.
