Least reliable car brands
 

 
When looking to buy a car, reliability is important, but it’s one of the harder things for car reviewers like us to evaluate. Thankfully, Consumer Reports polls its subscribers annually in order to judge which brands and models are the most reliable. CR also shows the least reliable brands in that ranking, which should help you narrow down your shopping list, giving you a sense of which brands to best avoid if squeaks, rattles or major malfunctions are a big concern for you.

CR says it didn’t have enough data to rate the Alfa Romeo, Dodge, Fiat, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, Mitsubishi and Polestar brands.

Here, we’ve listed the 10 least reliable car brands in the U.S., according to CR’s data.

10. Kia
Despite the Kia Niro Electric making the top 10 reliable models this year, the brand as a whole gets dragged down by poor ratings from the Sorento, Forte and Seltos.

9. Volvo
Historically, Volvo is known for making safe and reliable cars. Its current lineup falls short, however, with the XC90 being the brand’s least reliable model
image

8. Ram
The Ram 2500 and 1500 pickups don’t get stellar reliability scores, but the 1500 Classic had a predicted reliability score of just 11 out of 100, bring the brand as a whole down by 12 positions compared to last year’s overall reliability rankings.

7. GMC
GMC as a brand suffers from a terrible 2-out-of-100 score for the Yukon and a score of 11 for the Sierra 1500.
image

6. Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes scores two positions worse this year, with the GLE being its least reliable model in CR’s survey.
image

5. Volkswagen
None of four VW models — Jetta, Atlas, ID.4 and Tiguan — score above 50 points out of 100, but The Tiguan was the worst, at just 17 points.
image

4. Genesis
Hyundai’s luxury brand had just two models represented in CR’s study, and while the G70 scored 55 points out of 100, the GV80 SUV scored just 5 points.
image

3. Jeep
Though the Jeep Cherokee, Wrangler and Gladiator are able to get you off the beaten path, they can also land you in the shop, with reliability scores of 30, 25 and 23, respectively.
image

2. Tesla
The Tesla Model 3 EV scored the best of the brand, with 59 points, but the Model S, Y and X scored 20, 18 and 5, in that order. It retains its position on the list as the second-least reliable brand.
image

1. Lincoln
Ford’s luxury brand Lincoln retains the dubious honor of being the least reliable, with the Aviator being the most egregious offender. It’s a shame, as Lincoln makes some otherwise enjoyable vehicles.

Tesla makes it to the 2nd least reliable brand. Nothing new here. They have producing sh*tty vehicles and people gobbling them up.

As the poster above me said, Yes, anything Audi related makes this list. The masses already knew this.

I own a Honda but it is good to see Nissan no longer makes these lists as all Japanese makers shouldn't. All is right in the world.

Yea it’s unfortunate because I like the genesis g80 but goddamn I don’t wanna pay almost 50k for a car only to be in and out of the shop with it. Best bet is a Kia stinger

It's crazy that Lincoln is as unreliable as Ford is reliable. The Lincoln Nautilus is clean as sh*t too. Seen a few around town. I like them sh*ts. Those and the Ram 1500. I wouldn't mind having either one of those based on looks.

Not all cars are meant to be daily drivers

Some of y’all don’t even drag race but you want a hellcat or a demon

Hipsters who just want an image

Meanwhile you’ll get dusted by a dude in a civic who knows what he’s doing



American cars get a bad rap because their made for highways.

I think a brand new VW, Nissan, Honda, Toyota is a good pick for long-term average budget spending.

Audi, Benz, BMW, Volvo and all them 'luxury' sh*ts are better on a 2-3 year lease that you could swap out..

I don't know much about Tesla or electric cars but they're supposed to be more reliable no?

Teslas are a weekend car and so are most luxury vehicles. A Honda/Toyota/Suburu is a daily driver.

You’re not supposed to put too many miles on a Tesla, BMW or Mercedes it’s not made for road trips or running errands.

The problem is that people don’t know what they’re getting

That’s not true at all.

Tesla, BMW, Mercedes for the most part are meant to be DD’s or else their lease terms wouldn’t reflect so.

To claim a BMW or Mercedes’ isn’t a DD obviously shows you’ve never been to Europe/not aware of that market.

BMWs and Mercedes in Europe are built differently than BMWs and Mercedes in America.

Leases always give you more miles than you need

It’s not meant to be a daily driver it’s a weekend car.

crazy thing is if you drive most the brands on there then get in a lexus, acura, toyota, honda even if it's 10-20 year old vehicle you can literally feel the difference.
