(Avisa Nordland 🙂 Many people who buy new cars deal with the reliability of different models. There are also great differences in this area.
Japanese car models have for years been reputed to be confronted with far fewer bugs than cars produced elsewhere.
After all, South Korea, with Hyundai and Kia, was also known.
But car manufacturers in the US and Europe are also working hard to make sure the car is as flawless as possible.
This is now extremely important, because the cars have more and more advanced devices that are worth repairing.
In 2016, it was the top ten
A thorough investigation
That's why it's good that we have Consumer Reports Consumer Reports in the United States. They perform one of the most comprehensive quality surveys in the automotive industry every year to find out which cars offer the least and the worst.
2018 is not an exception, and the results are based, among other things, on information from 500,000 vehicles. There are 17 different categories. Here everything is mapped from the creaking panels to gearboxes that fail. In addition, consumer tests are tested by the cars themselves.
We chose a list of ten car brands with the slightest problems – and will be presented here:
French cars: Are they as bad as their reputation?
Yes, you were not rich if you earned money to get that result. Toyota's premium brand has for several years set a standard for what is meant by high reliability and quality.
Their most dependable model is also the luxury SUV GX, which is not sold in Norway.
On average, they received 78 points.
It is equally surprising that we will find the presenter second. A little new in the world now, it is.
Toyota has 14 models that have been inspected and a Japanese car manufacturer has an average of 76 units.
The recharging edition of the Prius is one of the models that come in very well with quality research.
Fredrik (35) filled 12 liters of petrol for 5 skates!
It does not have to be surprising that Mazda is tall. However, since last year they have actually climbed to the NI and are very pleased to secure the pallet space at this year's race.
Car enthusiasts will have the MX-5 sports car, which is the most reliable in the Mazda stables.
Overall Mazda won 69 points.
Japanese brands continue to dominate! Subaru rises to two places – and has an average of 65 points.
For everyone who likes the Impreza WRX, and it's a lot, it's probably a little disappointing that it's the least reliable in Subaru's stables. This is mainly due to problems associated with the gearbox.
These are used cars from hell
Finally, we will find another country on the list. Kia comes from South Korea and has come to two places since last year.
However, Sportage and Niro hybrids are doing well.
The top model of the Stinger GT is a slightly below average Kia.
Another premium brand – this time from Nissan. Since last year they have managed to get to one place. This is a mark we do not know about in Norway. But there are some copies on Norwegian roads.
Their least reliable model is the Q50, while the Q60 is the one who gets the most points in the Infiniti models.
This car has the most satisfied owners of Norway
Maybe you think that European cars can not be participants? Neida are with. And here we find the first post. However, Audi must fall from fourth place last year, because this time it averaged 60 points.
The least reliable is the Golf Competitor A3 – while the new Q5 is the best.
It could be a little too advantageous for the competition to learn about Audi in the survey. BMW is currently in three places on the list since last year.
The average is 58 points – with X1 as the least reliable. Begins to criticize the brakes that need to be replaced too soon and shake in the steering wheel.
The good news for Norby is that the i3 electric car is the one that gets the best score.
BMW has Mini also – and with a score of 57 points, Mini is just on the back of the list.
The SUV Countryman has won recognition for the most reliable of the two models that have been considered. The second model was Cooper. Countryman has a point above the average – while the other is somewhat lower.
Hyundai shares 9th place with exactly the same score as Mini. The least reliable model is Ioniq. The hybrid version of the Ioniq is amongst others the impact of gearbox and engine problems.
The score for the Korean brand is exactly the same as last year.
