These are the most and least reliable cars (according to 30 thousand drivers) | My car and me

At least 30,000 car owners shared their car experiences with Testaankoop and like-minded European organizations. Objective: Find out which car brands are the most and least reliable. distinct? The first diesel can only be found in the 25th position. And the winner? You get an almost perfect score of 98 out of 100.

The fact that there are no truly unreliable cars is a bit like Sinterklaas declaring that there will be no naughty children this year. But even at the bottom of the list of reliable car brands – Land Rover – still achieved a score of 62 out of 100.

That Land Rover is much less reliable than we say Dacia (87), Alfa Romeo (82) or Lancia (80) It doesn't seem to be a big problem for owners of such a car. Because they thank the brand with a satisfaction score of 74 out of 100, which is higher than theirs Chevrolet (72)which scores at least 20 points higher in terms of reliability.

“Compared to our previous 2021 survey, more brands today achieved a high score out of 100,” Testaankoop reports. Also: “During the warranty period (two to five years), 23 percent of cars had to go to “During that period up to 85 percent of warranty issues were properly addressed and fixed, compared to 43 percent in 2021.”

table. Who scores best in terms of reliability?

What is remarkable is an almost perfect score of 98 out of 100 Lexus. It therefore continues the strong reputation enjoyed by parent Toyota as a very good car to buy in the used car market.

It is interesting – but not illogical – that hybrids and electric cars achieve the highest scores. These cars are likely to be younger and therefore less susceptible to wear and tear than those using conventional fuel. “the current generation Fiat Panda (2012-) 1000 Gasoline Hybrid is the most reliable model. For previous generation models, that honor goes to Lexus NX (2014-2021) 2500 petrol hybrid,” says Testankop.

“We find the gasoline model first in the ranking in ninth place, which is the current model Audi A1 1000 (2018-). The first diesel can be found only in the 25th: the previous generation BMW 2 Series 2000 (2013-2021).”

Half of the Belgian participants have a gasoline car. Barely 4 percent have a fully electric car.

The price of maintenance varies greatly

In the Belgian part of the survey (fifteen percent of respondents in nine European countries), Testancop also asked about Driving type. This indicates that half of the participants in the Belgian survey have a gasoline car and 31 percent drive a diesel car. Nine percent have a hybrid car, five percent a hybrid car, and barely four percent a fully electric car.

The consumer organization also asked about this Car Maintenance: 79 percent of Belgian respondents did so through an authorized brand agent. The amount our citizens pay for it varies greatly. “Major maintenance costs an average of €600 or more at Audi, BMW and Volvo, compared to a maximum of €350 at Dacia, Honda and Suzuki. As for minor maintenance, the price ranges from €190 at Dacia to €309 at Audi.
