These Are The Top 10 Most And Least Reliable Cars You Can Buy


Which cars should you avoid and which are great?

Consumer Reports has completed its Annual Reliability Survey, which means that we now know which cars are the most/least reliable according to real-life consumers. Let's start off with the top 10 most unreliable cars for 2016. FCA and GM dominated the list with seven out of the top 10. The list starts with the Fiat 500L, which has transmission issues, followed by the sluggish and rough-riding Ford Fiesta. Then there's the Chevy Tahoe/GMC Yukon, which both suffer from steering vibration and failing electronics.

The Ram 2500 was also on the list for its steering vibrations and issues with its 4WD system. The Tesla Model X sat at sixth because of problems with those crazy doors. Here are the top five most unreliable 2016 models: Chrysler 200, Chevy Suburban/GMC Yukon, Jeep Renegade, Ford Focus and Cadillac Escalade.

On the other end of the spectrum, the top 10 most reliable cars of 2016 include the Toyota Prius, Lexus CT 200h, Infiniti Q70, Audi Q3, Lexus GX, Lexus GS, Mercedes GLC, Chevy Cruze, Audi Q7 and Toyota 4Runner. Unsurprisingly, the top 10 was dominated by five Toyota products. We were pleased to see three German luxury brands get on the list, and GM managed to have one car on the list which was nice after it dominated the crap section. The stark contrast between the two groups of cars is easy to see: foreign brands are rated as more reliable while American automakers still struggle with quality.
