The 10 most reliable car brands on the market | Present

The cars of Japanese and German brands are those that least pass through the workshop, and so the trend is repeated for a few years. They are the most reliable. Those that break down less, those that, consequently, less expense demand for maintenance issues. Not everyone says it: the Consumers and Users Organization (OCU) affirms it after a survey in which 76,881 drivers from Spain, Belgium, France, Italy and Portugal have participated. In short, it is assured by the owners of the vehicles, who also recognize that this issue is what conditions the purchase the most, even more than the price. Two key questions: how many faults has your car suffered since you bought it? And of these … how many were serious? From the answers you can determine the probability of needing a repair, that is, a useful way to know the reliability of a car, and the results indicate that among the brands with the best results, two premium manufacturers such as Lexus and Porsche stand out. But reliable tourism does not necessarily have to be expensive: more affordable brands (Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi …) also get excellent results. On the opposite side, the worst rated manufacturers are Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler and Dodge. And going into detail, model by model, four Toyota cars lead four of the five categories of the survey. A fact that should not be overlooked: the OCU asks for cars in circulation, not necessarily new, so that the list shows models (or versions) that are no longer for sale *. Although diesel-powered vehicles remain the best sellers, the OCU survey reveals that, in general, gasoline or hybrid engine models tend to be more reliable. * The classification is based on the number of failures that cars have suffered in the last 12 months, excluding those caused by an accident and assessing them based on their severity. This information deduces the probability that a vehicle has to go through the workshop more or less frequently. UTILITARIES As the OCU recalls, the simplest and cheapest range is also one of the most reliable, probably because it offers lower equipment possibilities (high-tech elements, for example, concentrate 4% of breakdowns).
