The farthest most SUVs ever venture off-road is the pavement outside the school gates, but they can still have a pretty hard life coping with use as the family taxi and comuting companion, so you need one that won't let you down.

To help car buyers choose ones that won't suffer a string of costly faults, we've asked nearly 25,000 SUV owners to reveal all about the dependability of their cars. For the annual What Car? Reliability Survey, conducted in association with MotorEasy, we asked motorists if their cars had suffered any faults over the past 24 months and, if so, how long those issues kept their cars off the road, and how much they cost to get them repaired. 

We compared SUVs in four different classes: small SUVsfamily SUVslarge SUVsluxury SUVs, sports SUVs and coupe SUVs. Here we reveal the most dependable 25 models, based on the data for cars aged up to five years old.
