Consumer Reports

Despite producing some high-quality vehicles, Kia as a whole suffers from the Sorento, Forte, and Seltos' subpar reviews. The XC90 is the Swedish Volvo's least dependable vehicle.

However, they noted that the Ram 2500 and 1500 pickups don't receive great reliability scores, while the 1500 Classic had a predicted reliability score of just 11 out of 100. CR claims it didn't have enough information to rate the Alfa Romeo, Dodge, and Fiat.

The Yukon SUV is primarily to blame for GMC's poor performance. This year, Mercedes performs two positions worse, with the GLE being its least dependable model according to Consumer Reports.

Four Volkswagen models received scores below 50 points out of 100, with the Tiguan crossover receiving the lowest, only 17 points. If you're considering purchasing a Tiguan, don't forget to give Japanese competitors like the Subaru Forester or Honda CR-V a closer consideration.

The reliability ratings for the Jeep Cherokee, Wrangler, and Gladiator are 30, 25, and 23, respectively. However, it is a Fiat-Chrysler brand.

Even though many consumers believe that buying an all-electric vehicle will eliminate any maintenance concerns, Tesla continues to rank as the second-least dependable brand.

Last but not least, Lincoln, holds the dubious distinction of being the least reliable, with the Aviator being the most egregious offender. one recommendation for buyers who are looking for a reliable car is the Civic Sedan. if you don't want to deal with problems Toyota Prius is another good choice with the new model recently introduced as a PHEV with significant updates.
