Best and worst large SUVs for reliability
Large and luxury SUVs are bought by families, so reliability is a vital consideration. We reveal the most – and least – dependable models...
Only 4% of Toyota RAV4 owners reported experiencing an issue. The sole area concerned was engine electrics, and all cars were drivable and fixed under warranty in less than a day. It’s no wonder that more than a third of owners said their car’s reliability was one of their favourite things about it.
The least reliable large and luxury SUVs
The Range Rover Evoque isn't as bad as the full-blown Range Rover for reliability (see below), but 45% of cars had a problem. The exhaust (15%) was worst, then interior trim and engine and non-engine electrics (both 13%). Most remained drivable and two-thirds were fixed in less than a week, but a few owners paid up to £1500.
2. Ford Edge
The Ford Edge isn't proving as sturdy as it looks, with 54% presenting a problem. The most common troubles concerned bodywork (25%), air-con (21%) and non-engine electrics (18%). Most cars could still be driven and were repaired in less than a week, with all work done under warranty.
1. Range Rover
