Most and least reliable older SUVs
There are plenty of temptingly-priced used SUVs on sale, but which of them should give you years of trouble-free motoring, and which are prone to problems?...
SUVs are hugely popular, which means there are plenty to choose from on the secondhand market. However, buying used can leave you with someone else's problem child, so you need to pick carefully.
That's where the What Car? Reliability Survey comes in. To help buyers select the best used examples aged from six to 15 years old we asked more than 16,000 owners to tell us how reliable their cars had been over the previous year.
In each case, we asked if the car had suffered any faults, and if so, in which of 15 different areas. In addition, we asked owners to tell us how long their car was out of action for and how much the repairs cost.
We then used this information to give each model a unique reliability rating, and here we reveal the 10 best and 10 worst performing SUVs, starting with the former.
