The most reliable older large SUVs - and the least

What Car? Logo By Claire Evans of What Car? | Slide 1 of 19: They're often loaded with equipment that can go wrong, though, so to help you avoid an expensive nightmare, we've compiled a list of the most and lease reliable large SUVs first registered between 2000 and 2015. To do that, we've used information on older cars from our latest What Car? Reliability Survey. As part of the survey, owners were asked to tell us if their vehicle had suffered a fault in the previous 12 months. If it had, we asked them to say which of 14 categories the problem fitted into. The categories are: air conditioning, battery, bodywork, brakes, engine, engine electrics, exhaust, fuel system, gearbox, interior trim, non-engine electrics, sat-nav, steering and suspension. We also asked owners how much their repairs had cost (from 'fixed for free' to 'costing more than £1500 to put right') and how long the car took to be fixed (from 'completed the same day' to 'more than a week'). Using all that information, we've given each car a unique reliability rating. We'll first tell you about the most reliable - and then the least: Slideshow story - please click the right-hand arrow above to continue
