Large SUVs are the must-have family motors, so they need to be practical, durable and dependable. We reveal the most – and least – reliable models...

So, as well as possessing sturdy interiors and capacious boots, they need to be dependable. That's where the What Car? Reliability Survey can help.

We asked nearly 13,000 people to tell us about any faults that their cars had suffered during the past 12 months, how long the problem kept the car off the road and how much they'd had to pay to get it fixed.

Those that had the fewest problems and were cheapest to fix gained the top ratings in the study, while those that languished in workshops for days on end and racked up expensive repair bills were given the lowest scores. Here we name the most and least dependable large SUVs aged up to five years old.

We're currently running our reliability survey again, so once you’ve read the story, please tell us about your own car.
