As part of the study, the cars traveled 100,000 km and were then dismantled. The models of the Volkswagen concern turned out to be the most reliable.
The German publication Auto Bild has published its traditional car reliability rating. Experts have determined which cars are best preserved after a run of 100,000 km. The results were published on the publication’s website.
Audi A3 g-tron became the leader of the rating
The research methodology is very non-standard. Auto Bild journalists regularly conduct long test drives. All malfunctions are fixed, and on a run of 100,000 km, the cars are completely disassembled at service stations and their technical condition is assessed.
Of course, many modern models already have problems at 100,000 km, but a number of cars turned out to be either fully functional or with minor breakdowns. They are the ones who topped the list. The Volkswagen concern turned out to be the absolute leader – 5 of its models were in the TOP-10 at once.
Named the most unreliable family crossovers
The most reliable cars after 100,000 km of run:
Audi A3 Sportback g-tron – no faults found BMW Z4 – no faults found, slight wear of individual components; Audi A6 Avant 40 TDI S tronic – minor damage to the parking sensors; Seat Ateca 1.4 TSI Style – no faults found, comments on the quality of the seats; Audi A4 Avant – no faults found, slight wear to interior trim; Suzuki Swift Sport – no faults found, slight rust on pillars; Mazda CX-5 Skyactiv-D – no faults found, slight rust in trunk; Mercedes-Benz A220 d – faults not found; Toyota Prius – no faults found, slight rust on the body; Volkswagen Golf Sportsvan 1.4 TSI – no faults found even after 150,000 km of run.
