SUVs You Want, and Ones to Avoid

The last place any driver wants to be is stranded on the side of the road with a broken down vehicle – especially an SUV full of passengers and precious cargo. It’s also a bummer to waste time at the mechanic repeatedly getting repairs done on your SUV. To help you avoid these situations we carefully track the reliability scores of SUVs across several size and price categories – utilizing the Predicted Reliability ratings provided by J.D. Power and Associates.

These ratings consider J.D. Power’s Vehicle Dependability Study, which tracks customer complaints for three-year-old vehicles, and its Initial Quality Study, which measures owner-reported problems within 90 days of purchase. The SUVs with the highest reliability scores will likely cost less to maintain and repair over the long term. Read on to find out which SUVs are the most and least reliable.
