6 Most Dependable SUVs

April 2, 2015

As with any relationship -- including the one you have with your vehicle -- dependability is important. After all, if you can't trust that your vehicle can safely get you from point A to point B without breaking down or having major issues, that's a problem. That's why when it comes time to purchase a car, savvy consumers do their homework to check out vehicle dependability ratings before buying.

Bankrate.com recently put together a list of the six most dependable SUVs based on research conducted by J.D. Power and Associates' annual US Vehicle Dependability Study. These top trustworthy SUVs include the Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, GMC Yukon, and Nissan Murano. Below is the full list.

If you're considering any of these dependable SUVs for your garage, I recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices in your local area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.

California Residents - Important:

There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
