Reliability according to TÜV Report 2021 (4 – 5 years)

tuv-report-2021 TÜV Report 2021 table for four- and five-year old cars produced in 2015 and 2016 with links to recalls*.

Five models with a three-pointed star were placed in the top ten in the list of cars produced between 2015 and 2016. However, the winner is traditionally a Porsche 911 with 2.7% defects, followed by the SUV sibling Macan. It shares the second place with the small Opel Karl. The seventh place of the Mazda 2 is also worth attention.

Among the traditional representatives of the red positions at the end of the table, i.e. Dacia models, the Volkswagen Sharan and Passat CC appear in the last two places in this category. In both cases, serious defects occur in about 20% of inspected cars.

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.
