Reliability according to TÜV Report 2021 (8 – 9 years)

tuv-report-2021 TÜV Report 2021 table for eight- and nine-year old cars produced in 2011 and 2012 with links to recalls*.

With nine-year-old cars, odometers are already well over a hundred thousand kilometres, and the percentage of serious defects is also increasing. If we skip the first three more or less seasonal sports cars, the Mitsubishi ASX is the best choice, followed by the Audi Q5 and the BMW X1.

Fiat Panda, Renault Twingo, Dacia Sandero, Renault Kangoo and Dacia Logan have over 30% of unsuccessful attempts to pass the technical inspection in this category.

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.
