Volkswagen vehicles have a reputation for being reliable, but their reliability ratings vary depending on the model and year. According to Consumer Reports, Volkswagen ranked 12th out of 32 car brands for reliability in 2023. This is slightly below the industry average, but it is still considered to be a good rating.

Some of the most reliable Volkswagen models include:
  • Volkswagen Up
  • Volkswagen Polo
  • Volkswagen Golf
  • Volkswagen Tiguan
  • Volkswagen T-Roc
These models have all received good ratings from Consumer Reports and other automotive organizations.

Volkswagen has also made significant improvements to the reliability of its vehicles in recent years. In 2022, Volkswagen ranked 6th out of 32 car brands for reliability by J.D. Power. This shows that Volkswagen is committed to improving the quality and reliability of its vehicles.

Here are some tips for choosing a reliable Volkswagen vehicle:
  • Do your research and read reviews of different Volkswagen models before you buy one.
  • Consider buying a newer Volkswagen model. Newer Volkswagen models are generally more reliable than older models.
  • Buy your Volkswagen vehicle from a reputable dealer. A reputable dealer will be able to help you choose a reliable vehicle and will provide you with good customer service.
 
The Volkswagen golf should be fairly reliable because I have seen it being uses for inter city transportation every other day and it doesn't develop any major issues that might need huge repairs.
 
Volkswagens are mostly reliable cars, that's why the brand has that current status in the market, the models I like the most are the Volkswagen Polo and the Golf, both iconic and highly functional models.
 
I have been privileged to drive some good models of Volkswagen and the Passat and I would tell you one thing for sure, Volkswagen were traditionally built to be very strong and with high performance engines for every generation of it's models. Extremely reliable vehicle for commercial transportation.
 
I have never used it personally, but from what I have heard from others who have used it, i believe it does pretty well. Back then in school, I had a teacher who had different cars but he mostly used his Volkswagen for more than five years he never really had any issue.

This is true, and that's why it's such a used brand in most countries, it's a generally reliable brand, like all brands, they have more and less durable and reliable vehicles, but if we take stock, Volkswagen is reliable.

Let's look at the popularity of the Volkswagen Golf and its reliability or Volkswagen Polo.
 
Volkswagen cars are known for their overall reliability, but some owners consider them to be just average in terms of dependability. While breakdowns are quite typical, the cost of repairs can be quite high. If you are seeking a constantly dependable Volkswagen model, the Up model is a great choice.

Why is that? Volkswagen is not an excessively expensive brand, in fact, its name means people's car and it has always been a brand with good value for money.
 
When it comes to a car being strong and balanced on the road, Volkswagen models rank among the top two. They rarely break down completely even after decades of usage.
