Most Reliable Crossovers and SUVs in 2017
By surveying thousands of new- and used-vehicle owners each year, J.D. Power gathers data regarding what has gone right and what has gone wrong with the cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans that people own.
From this data measuring vehicle quality and dependability, the company creates Power Circle Ratings that provide visual representation of how reliable a vehicle is predicted to be over time. In cases where a model nameplate is new to the market, J.D. Power considers the historical performance of all models offered by the brand in order to establish its likelihood of providing trouble-free motoring in the future.
On the pages that follow, listed in alphabetical order, and according to J.D. Power, are the mass-market crossovers and SUVs that are expected to provide the best reliability over time. Remember, however, that each rating must be compared to other models within a specific vehicle segment, and are not intended for comparison across segments.
