in the ranking of the worst there are also Italians

The world of automobiles is really complicated, or in any case it requires considerable vehicle care. A ranking could help you choose the right one for you.

Nobody likes to stay on foot with your car, especially if this involves damage to your vehicle and a picnic that is often not even who knows how much appreciated, especially now that we are in the middle of summer. But which are the most reliable vehicles ever, at least on paper? The Web site Other Consumption took care of it by involving – between April and May 2021 – 51,847 motorists in France, Belgium, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

In our country, 17,000 drivers were involved. These people were asked to answer a questionnaire from which a reliability index was then calculated. An assessment based on the number of failures that occurred within a year and their severity, taking into account parameters such as the number of kilometers traveled and the age of the car.

Car reliability, Japan dominates: the ranking that may surprise you

The car must be reliable. This emerged from this analysis. Which seems trivial, but when you think about it, it’s not at all. In the case of this survey, a series of data were put together such as the age of the car (up to ten years), the number of kilometers traveled and the quantity / severity of the failures suffered.

By doing this, it was possible to get a complete picture of the reliability linked to different car brands. And it was also possible to do so by considering various four-wheeled categories. For example, Japan dominates city cars with Toyota, Mitsubishi, Honda, Suzuki, Kia and Hyundai. In the second – family car – Lexus and Toyota excel.

Among the SUVs, however, in front we find Lexus, Subaru, Porsche, Toyota, Mitsubishi and Kia. In addition, the models preferred by consumers are brands of international standing: Porsche, Tesla and Lexus. Then Opel, Fiat and Lancia. And the estimated amount to repair the vehicles? First of all, the main problems that people have to face are related to the electrical parts of the vehicles, the braking system and the combustion of the engine.

Obviously, luxury builders lead customers to spend more at the mechanic. With an average higher than or equal to 400 euros, we find Land Rover, Mercedes, Audi and Volvo. 300 euros instead for Lexus, Alfa Romeo, Bmw, Jeep, Mazda, Mitsubishi and Volkswagen. On the other hand, the annual costs of Lancia (200), Suzuki (225) and Fiat (240) are lower.
