The German Technical Inspectorate (TUV) has compiled a new reliability rating for passenger cars. The Russian edition “ZR” has isolated from it a list of the five most problematic models from among those that are presented in one form or another in Russia.
The budget Dacia Logan of the second generation, known in our country under the Renault brand, topped the anti-rating. According to TUV, at the age of 2-3 years, its failure rate was 10.4 / 56, that is, 10.4% of failures with an average mileage of 56 thousand kilometers.
Older specimens are not inferior in terms of the number of breakdowns: 4-5 years old – 19.2 / 72, 6-7 years old – 30.9 / 102, 8-9 years old – 34.4 / 117, 10-11 years old – 37.5 / 137.
The second place in the number of malfunctions was taken by the Volkswagen Passat, which also distinguished itself in two age groups (the previous generation of the model). When the car turns 4-5 years old, the failure rate is 19.8 / 90, and when it reaches the age of 6-7 years, the index increases to 25.3 / 120. Technically, cars for Russia did not differ from European ones.
The third line is occupied by the current generation Mazda6. Statistics show that it annoys owners only on small runs, the bounce rate at the age of 2-3 years is 8.5 / 52.
Hyundai Tucson / ix35 of the second generation (2010-2015) at the age of 10-11 breaks down in 34% of cases with an average mileage of 130 thousand km.
Fifth position for the first generation Nissan Qashqai. At the age of 10-11, his refusal rate is 32.9 / 136. These machines were delivered to us from the plant in Sunderland (Great Britain), so they did not differ from the European versions.
The rating is, of course, compiled on the basis of data downloads for Europe, so information from it cannot be automatically extrapolated to Russia. In our country, other operating conditions and machines, as a rule, carry design changes – to adapt to difficult conditions. In addition, in the Russian Federation, consumers choose gasoline cars, and in Europe there is a large share of diesel cars, especially among older models.
