Reliability according to TÜV Report 2021 (2 – 3 years)

tuv-report-2021 TÜV Report 2021 table for two- and three-year old cars produced in 2017 and 2018 with links to recalls*.

Among the youngest cars, the overall winner, the Mercedes-Benz GLC ranks first, despite the fact that we record more than 15 recalls with this model. It is also worth mentioning the shared second place for the Opel Insignia, or the shared sixth place, where the Audi Q2 and Hyundai i30 are together. Among the predominantly German cars, the Mazda CX-3 also reached the top ten.

At the very end of the table we can find all Romanian Dacia models, but also Fiat Punto, Renault Kangoo and Ford S-Max, Galaxy and Mondeo.

The TÜV Report includes all the results of technical inspections from all TÜV companies in Germany – almost 9 million technical inspections from July 2019 to June 2020.
