The 15 most UNRELIABLE cars named & shamed!

Bílar og ökutæki

Reliability is one of the most important things to consider when buying a new car. Of course, some are going to be more reliable than others - but what are the models you may want to steer clear of when making a new purchase? Mat's pulled together a list of the top 15 most unreliable, including anything from a Bentley to a Tesla! But what do you think will take the top spot? Keep watching to find out!
Thanks to Warrantywise for helping us create this video -
This survey has been calculated using data taken from the extended car warranty data held by Warrantywise and the repairs they have received. A spokesman for Warranty Wise said: “Warrantywise does not release data for cars unless we have a minimum of 100 vehicles as a sample amount. This data relates to claims between 2010 and 2020 and may not represent the reliability of new vehicles as all of the data in the set is for vehicles over 3 years old.”

    All jaguars and range rovers are garbage , old cadilacs with the northstar v8s are one of the worste engines ever with the head gaskets problems. Subarus have had head gasket problems with there 2.5 liter engines (most of there cars) for ever really, people say volvos have good engines and they do but there transmissions have been garbage since the late 90s on alll there models. Acura tls have transmission issues. Lincoln ls with the v8s have transmissiom issues. Some of the early bmw v8s had problems with there timing chain guides. And allll bmws have problems with there cool systems and in higher mileage cars the vanos systems. The old e60 bmw m5s from like 2004 to somwhere around 2009 ish have all kinds of problems. The old mclarens 12cs break everything and you cant get parts for them. The early nissans and infinitys from the early 2000s all have problems with timing chain tensioners. And volkswagen and audi have all kinds of small problems. Thats all i know

    Would love to know how the probability is done, I mean if you measure the number of faults without noticing how many are insured then you are wrong. The cost of repairs is also an issue but not if it doesnt happen often or if you are reasonably competent and can do it yourself

    What is the result of all ? As more parts and extras a car has, as more can brake down. The most reliable cars are small, cheap without any extras. But they are also boring options. Everything comes with a price and it doesn't stopp just by buying it. You can't get a beautiful woman with a warranty she will love you for ever no matter what.

    I’m not surprised loads of German cars are on here but I think it’s unfair to suggest they’re ‘built badly’ or ‘badly engineered’. Actually quite the opposite, because they’re finely tuned precision machines they need a lot of care put into them. I generally find any German cars which are well cared for will rarely do you wrong.

    2 years ago I bought a low mileage 2014 Subaru Forester 2.0d. It was so unreliable that I traded it in within 9 months. The Subaru dealer that I bought it from was dishonest and incompetent. Subaru UK were just as bad. The dealer has now gone out of business. LOFL. I wouldn't touch a Subaru with somebody else's 10 foot barge pole! I now own a Kia Sportage. Very pleased with it.

    Perhaps you could put Alfa Romeo in there. 😅 My cousin bought a brand new Alfa Romeo gulietta about 6 months ago and it’s drank loads of oil and blown the head gasket already. He had it fixed and then the engine started having faults again. After taking it back and forth the garage because he had it under a warranty we thought everything was great again. That was until the Gear box failed. He has since taken it back, had it repaired under warranty and sold it. He’s just bought the new Volvo XC-90 and it’s fantastic so far

    I disagree with ford, the gearbox issue is after a 100k upto 125k miles because thats the limit where warranty companis stop warrantying cars rest of the cars most likely will be getting their problems at 60-70k miles, he did a fair review but forgot one of the main factors thats average mileage

    Read, JD Powell Analytics. I’ve been reading them since 1992. Lexus was always number one reliability. When I bought my BEZ, 2000 E430 4 matic, it was a Lemon. Mercedes, was # 24 in reliability. All three German are unreliable, BMW, BEZ, Audi. Volkswagen, also trouble. Range rover has been rated the most unreliable car of all last year. Jaguars have always been unreliable well for 45 years. Sometimes the Americans make failures no doubt. Bentley, well, Beautiful, problematic. But yet these companies still succeed and they make mountains of money. If you wanna own one of the European cars you need to lease it and unload it at the end of the lease.

    Years ago, cars were 10x as unreliable as today, wherein many cars simply couldn't start. Now, it's the opposite: the crummier and simpler the car, the more reliable it is, not less. A Mercedes S has an incredible litany of error codes; why, just the suspension, which is inert in most cars, has dozens of potential problems. See the web mechanic sites...

    I've had quite a few Renaults. Currently have a 2015 Megane RS265 Cup. Never had a problem with any of them. German reliability by default is a case of marketing over engineering.
