Experts have named the 10 most reliable crossovers aged three years and over. The list was compiled by the authoritative American agency Consumer Reports, whose specialists interviewed more than 300,000 car owners and found out how satisfied they were with the cars they purchased three years ago. Almost all nine positions in the top ten were occupied by mid-size crossovers from Asian manufacturers, but one line went to the American model.
The most reliable mid-size crossovers in the survey included the Ford Edge, Honda Passport, Hyundai Santa Fe, Honda Pilot and Acura MDX, Kia Telluride, Mazda CX-9 and Toyota Highlander. That is, the only non-Asian model was the Ford Edge.
Experts note that three-year-old used crossovers and SUVs are endowed with many of the features that new cars have. And they are noticeably cheaper, since cars depreciate most quickly during the first three to four years of ownership.
Previously, Consumer Reports compiled a rating of cars whose owners regretted buying. According to the results of a survey in which thousands of people participated, the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport SUV was recognized as the most disappointing. Also, the owners were particularly dissatisfied with the premium Mercedes-Benz GLB and Infiniti QX50, which did not perform well in two years of operation.
