Car Brands With the Best (and Worst) Reliability in 2019

US News & World Report - Cars Logo By Eileen Falkenberg-Hull of US News & World Report - Cars | Slide 1 of 34: You don’t want to buy a new car, only to have it break down shortly after you take possession. That’s part of the reason why U.S. News & World Report factors in vehicle reliability, alongside other data, to come up with our new vehicle rankings.
To find the predicted reliability score, U.S. News uses data including the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study rating. If this rating is unavailable, the J.D. Power Predicted Reliability rating will be used.
You may be surprised where certain car brands ended up on this list. Bear in mind that luxury doesn’t necessarily equate to reliability, with Volvo and Land Rover falling near the bottom. On the other side, some mass market brands including Toyota, Hyundai, and Kia fare quite well.
Keep in mind that reliability scores shift as recalls and other information come to light. Therefore, the scores you see here may change throughout the year. When this slideshow was published, the scores were accurate.
Read on to see the most reliable car brands in our rankings.
