These Midsize SUVs Are The Most Reliable

When you purchase a new SUV, it’s important to consider more than just the cost of the vehicle, insurance, and registration. You also need to be aware of the vehicle’s warranties and what services they cover, as well as the car’s predicted reliability.

The predicted long-term reliability of a vehicle can help you get a good idea of how much money you will spend on repairs over the SUV’s lifespan. There are vehicles with a low predicted reliability that may be a pleasure to drive, but you likely won’t be driving it as often as a more reliable car that doesn’t spend days and weeks at the shop.

We use J.D. Power’s U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study to determine a vehicle’s U.S. News Reliability score. If study information is unavailable, we use J.D. Power Predicted Reliability ratings to determine the score.

A score of three out of five is average. This article starts with the least-reliable models and counts down to the most reliable.

Price and high U.S. News overall scores do not necessarily indicate that a vehicle has high predicted reliability. To take a deeper look at the most reliable midsize SUVs like the 2018 Buick Enclave, click through this slideshow.
