Midsized SUVs combine roomy interiors and plenty of cargo space in a package that’s still relatively easy to drive and park. Some models come with all-wheel drive for rough weather, and a few offer a compact third row of seating that adds flexibility.

But some of the most popular midsized SUVs are also some of the least reliable, according to our exclusive survey data, which include information on more than 329,000 vehicles. To keep you from wasting your time and money on repairs down the road, Consumer Reports compiled this list of the most reliable new midsized SUVs based on those insights. That way, you can make a smarter purchase decision.
