The least reliable small SUVs
The Audi Q2 is pretty reliable, but it's in the bottom three here because it's up against such stiff competition from models that have very few faults.
Although 24% of Q2s had a problem, the most common were small issues relating to non-engine electrics. There were also a smaller number of gearbox/clutch faults.
Most were fixed in less than a week and repaired for free, but some owners had to pay between £201-£1500 for repair work.
Like the Q2, the T-Roc isn't terribly unreliable, it's just not as faultless as other small SUVs.
While 25% of T-Rocs had a fault, most (13%) concerned the bodywork. There were also issues with the engine and its electrics. All work was done under warranty, but most cars took more than a week to put right.
The Jeep Renegade has been plagued by non-engine electrical faults that affected 33% of cars; some owners told us their DAB radios and dashboard displays had stopped working properly. Other problem areas included the air con, brakes, exhaust and gearbox
