Best and Worst Cars Aged 2-3 Years

The German Technical Inspection Association (TÜV) has conducted a large study and has compiled a list of the best and worst cars aged 2-3 years as of 2020 (TÜV 2020).

According to AutoBild, the organization's experts “carried out almost 10 million checks and carefully documented the results in accordance with the car model, mileage and identified defects.” After that, they calculated the reliability coefficient for each model, based on which they made the final rating.

In total, the TÜV experts put the models in 6 different categories, with three best and worst cars in each of them. The following results you can see below (illustrations for each category from left to right are in descending order).
