Volkswagen Reliability

The ADAC breakdown statistics determine which Volkswagen models are the most reliable and which have broken down most – a good help when buying a used Volkswagen.

In the statistics for 2020, all the 3,756,226 breakdowns for which the German Yellow Angels had to move out in 2019 were recorded and evaluated. There is enough data available that gives an objective picture of the reliability of the Volkswagen models.

We have sorted the available data by the make and model. Choose the Volkswagen model you are interested in.
