(Avisa Nordland 🙂 Many who buy new cars are concerned about the reliability of different models. In this area there are also big variations.
Japanese car models have for years had a reputation for being confronted with significantly fewer mistakes than cars produced elsewhere.
After all, South Korea, with Hyundai and Kia, has also been known.
But American and European car manufacturers are also working hard to make sure the cars are as flawless as possible.
It becomes extra important now, as the cars only get more and more advanced equipment, which costs a lot to be repaired.
This was the top 10 list in 2016
Therefore, it is good that we have Consumer Reports Consumer Reports, in the United States. They perform one of the most comprehensive quality researches in the automotive industry every year to reveal which cars offer the least and most wrong.
2018 is no exception, and the results are based, among other things, on information from 500,000 vehicles. There are 17 different categories. Here, everything is mapped from crushing panels to gearboxes that fail. In addition, Consumer Reports tests the cars themselves.
We have selected the list of the 10 car brands with least problems – and they will be presented here:
French cars: are they as bad as their reputation?
Yes, you did not get rich if you earned money to earn so much points. Toyota's premium brand has for years been the standard for what is meant by high reliability and quality.
Their most reliable model is also luxury SUV GX, which is not sold in Norway.
They got 78 points on average.
Just as surprising is that we find the moderator in second place. A little new in the world for now it is.
Toyota has 14 models that have been checked, and the Japanese car manufacturer got an average of 76.
The rechargeable edition of Prius is one of the models that will be very good with the quality survey.
Fredrik (35) filled 12 liters of gasoline on a 5 liter ice skater!
It can not be surprising that Mazda comes high up. But they have actually climbed NI since last year and are very pleased to secure the pallet site this year.
Car enthusiasts will enjoy the MX-5 sports car that is most reliable in the Mazda stables.
In total, Mazda got 69 points.
The Japanese brands continue to dominate! Subaru climbs two places – and has an average of 65 points.
For anyone who likes Impreza WRX, and they are many, it's probably a bit disappointing that it's least reliable in the Subaru stables. This is mainly due to gearbox problems.
These are used cars from hell
Finally, we find another country that is represented on the list. Kia is from South Korea and has to fall in two places since last year.
But both Sportage and Niro hybrid come well.
The top model Stinger GT is slightly below average Kia.
Another premium brand – this time from Nissan. They managed to climb a place from last year. This is a brand we do not know much about in Norway. But there are also some copies on Norwegian roads.
Their least reliable model is Q50, while Q60 is the one who gets the most points in the Infiniti models.
This car has Norway's most satisfied owners
You might think that European cars were barred from participating? Neida they are with. And here we find the first contribution. However, Audi must fall from fourth place last year, since this time ended with an average of 60 points.
The least reliable is Golf Competitor A3 – while the new Q5 is the best.
It may be a bit too good for a competitor to find out Audi on the survey. BMW is currently three places on the list from last year.
They average 58 points – with X1 as least reliable. There will be criticism for brakes that have to be replaced early and shake in the wheel.
The good news for the Norwegians is that the electric car i3 is the one that gets the best results.
BMW also owns Mini – and with a score of 57 points, Mini is only on the back of the list.
SUV Countryman got the credit to be the most reliable of the two models considered. The other model was Cooper. Countryman has a point above average – while the latter is slightly below.
Hyundai shares 9th place with exactly the same points as Mini. The least reliable model is Ioniq. The hybrid edition of Ioniq is among other things the bump for gear and engine problems.
The score for the Korean brand is exactly the same as last year.
