Small SUVs are great for families. They're practical, roomy and generally affordable to own. They also need to be dependable - and that's where our our 2017 Reliability Survey can help.

We asked more than 14,200 people to tell us about any faults their cars had suffered during the past 12 months. We asked how long the problem kept the car off the road and how much they'd had to pay to get it fixed.
