(Avisa Nordland 🙂 Many people who buy new cars depend on the reliability of various models. There are also large differences in this area.
Japanese car models have been known for years that they are dealing with much smaller errors than cars produced elsewhere.
Finally, South Korea, with Hyundai and Kia, was also well known.
But American and European car manufacturers are working hard to ensure that cars are as flawless as possible.
Now it is especially important because the cars receive more and more advanced equipment, which costs a lot to fix it.
This was the first 10 list in 2016
A thorough investigation
That's why it's good that we have consumer reports, consumer reports, in the United States. They perform one of the most comprehensive quality tests in the automotive industry every year to discover which cars offer the least, and hence, what's wrong.
2018 is no exception, and the results are based, inter alia, on information from 500,000 vehicles. There are 17 different categories. Here, everything is reproduced from the creaking of gearbox panels that fail. In addition, Consumer Reports tests cars by itself.
We have chosen a list of 10 car brands with the smallest 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 that they would get such a result. Toyota's premium brand has been setting standards in terms of reliability and quality for years.
Their most reliable model is the luxury GX SUV, which is not sold in Norway.
They got an average of 78 points.
Equally surprising is that the moderator is in second place. For now, a little new in the world.
Toyota has 14 models that have been tested and a Japanese car manufacturer has an average of 76.
The reusable version of the Prius is one of the models that fits very well in quality testing.
Fredrik (35) filled 12 liters of gasoline on a 5-liter skater!
It is not surprising that Mazda is high. However, since last year they have climbed to NI and are very happy about the safe place for the palette in this year's race.
Car enthusiasts will be happy with the MX-5 sports car, which is the most reliable in Mazda's stables.
In total, Mazda scored 69 points.
Japanese brands are still dominating! Subaru climbs two places – and has an average of 65 points.
For anyone who likes the WRX Impreza, and there are many of them, it's probably a bit disappointing that he's the least credible in the Subaru stables. This is mainly due to problems related to the gearbox.
These are used cars from hell
Finally, we find another country represented on the list. Kia comes from South Korea and has to be in two places since last year.
However, both the Sportage and Niro hybrids work well.
The top model of the Stinger GT is slightly below the average Kia.
Another premium brand – this time from Nissan. They managed to get one place from last year. This is a sign that we do not know much about in Norway. But there are also copies on Norwegian roads.
The least credible model is the Q50, and the Q60 is the best point of the Infiniti models.
This car has the most satisfied owners of Norway
Would you think that European cars could not participate in them? Neida are with them. And here we find the first contribution. However, Audi dropped from fourth place last year because this time it ended with an average of 60 points.
The least reliable is the Golf A3 – and the new Q5 is the best.
It may be a bit too good for a competitor to find out about Audi in the poll. BMW is currently in three locations on the list from last year.
They have an average of 58 points – with X1 as the least reliable. You get criticism for the brakes, which should be replaced too early and shake in the steering wheel.
The good news for Norwegians is that the i3 electric car is the one that gets the best result.
BMW also has a Mini – with a score of 57 points, Mini is at the end of the list.
Countryman SUV was considered the most reliable of the two models. Cooper was another model. Countryman has a point above the average – while the second is slightly below.
Hyundai shares 9th place with exactly the same rating as Mini. The least reliable model is Ioniq. The hybrid edition of Ioniq is among others on the problems with the transmission and the engine.
The result for the Korean brand is exactly the same as last year.
