Reliability according to TÜV Report 2022 (4 – 5 years)

tuv-report-2021 TÜV Report 2022 table for four- and five-year-old cars produced in 2016 and 2017 with links to recalls*.

In this category, the Audi Q2 unseated the Porsche 911 from the top spot. In fourth place behind the Mazda CX-3 is the Seat Ateca. For some, the last position for the BMW 5/6 Series may come as a surprise. At the bottom of the table, we also find two Dacia and two related models, the VW Sharan and Seat Alhambra.

The TÜV Report includes all technical inspection results from all TÜV companies in Germany – 9.6 million technical inspections (TIs) from July 2020 to June 2021. In addition to the percentage of failed TIs, it also tracks the average number of kilometres driven. It says nothing about the care and maintenance that owners give to their cars.
