When buying a luxury car, one of the most important things to consider is how reliable it is. How often have they broken down? How many owners reported issues? Some cars are more reliable than others, but it’s not always easy to tell. At WeBuyPrestigeCar, we have compiled a list of 5 reliable luxury cars with less than 20% of owners reporting issues within the first 12 months.

How Do You Know If A Car Is Reliable? 

Although the car brands website gives you a lot of information about the car itself, it doesn’t tell you how reliable the car is. Sites such as Consumer Reports and WhatCar will rank and give predictions on how reliable a new car is based on previous models.

For used cars or cars that have been around a while, there are reports about any issues a car has had and what the cause is. Before purchasing a car, check reviews, reliability reports, etc to get a better understanding.
