(Avisa Nordland 🙂 Many people who buy new cars are concerned about the reliability of different models. There are also large variations in this area.
Japanese car models have for years a reputation for being faced with far fewer mistakes than cars produced elsewhere.
After all, South Korea, with Hyundai and Kia, was also well-known.
But American and European car manufacturers also work hard to make sure cars are as impeccable as possible.
It is now becoming more important, as cars only acquire more and more advanced equipment, which costs a lot to be repaired.
This was the first list in 2016
It is therefore good that we have consumer reports on consumer reports in the United States. They each year carry out one of the most comprehensive quality surveys in the automotive industry to reveal which of the cars offer the least and the 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 deceptive panels that do not succeed in gearboxes. In addition, Consumer Reports test cars.
We chose the list of 10 car brands with the slightest problems – and these will be presented here:
French cars: Are they as bad as their reputation?
Yes, you did not get rich if you earned money to win such a score. The premium Toyota brand has set the standard for years for what is meant by reliability and high quality.
Their most reliable model is the luxury SUV GX, which is not sold in Norway.
They earned 78 points on average.
It is equally surprising that we find the moderator second. A little new in the world for the moment, that is.
Toyota has 14 models that have been checked and the Japanese manufacturer has averaged 76 models.
Reusable edition of Prius is one of the models that fits well with the quality study.
Fredrik (35) filled 12 liters of gasoline on a 5-liter skater!
It is not surprising that Mazda comes up. However, they actually climbed NI last year, and are very excited to provide pallet space this year of the race.
Car enthusiasts will enjoy the sporty MX-5 sports car, the most reliable in the Mazda stands.
In total, Mazda achieved 69 points.
Japanese brands continue to dominate! Subaru climbs two places – and averages 65 points.
For anyone who likes the Impreza WRX and there are many, it's probably a little disappointing that it's the least reliable in Subaru stand. This is mainly due to problems with the gearbox.
These are machines used in hell
Finally, we find another country on the list. Kia is from South Korea and has to fall in two places last year.
However, both Sportage and Niro hybrids are good.
The top Stinger GT model is slightly below Kia's average.
Another premium brand – this time from Nissan. They managed to climb a place last year. This is a sign we do not know much about in Norway. But there are also some children on the Norwegian roads.
The least reliable model is the Q50, while the Q60 is the one that receives the most points in the Infiniti models.
This car has the most satisfied owners in Norway
Could it be thought that European cars were forbidden to participate? Neida with whom I am. And here we find the first contribution. However, Audi has to drop from fourth place last year since it ended with an average of 60 points.
The least reliable is the A3 golf competitor – while the new Q5 is the best.
It might be a little too good for a competitor to find Audi on the survey. BMW is currently in three places on last year's list.
They are on average 58 points – with X1 as the least reliable. It criticizes the brakes that need to be replaced too early and shakes in the steering wheel.
The good news for Norwegians is that the i3 is the one that gets the best score.
BMW owns the Mini also – and with a score of 57 points, the Mini is just in the back of the list.
SUV Countryman has obtained the credit of being the most reliable of the two models that have been taken into account. The other model was Cooper. Countryman has a point over the media – while the latter is a bit lower.
Hyundai has 9th place, exactly the same point as Mini. The least reliable model is Ioniq. Ioniq's hybrid edition refers, among other things, to a blow to gear and engine problems.
The Korean brand score is exactly the same as last year.
