6 Most Dependable SUVs
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.
