Reliability is one of the most important qualities motorists look for as they search for a used car. While many of the models in today's market boast long life spans and require little vehicle maintenance, a few brands stand out above others. 

Recently, Endurance released a list of reliable automobiles, Using data from insurance claims, the company found which vehicles needed the most frequent work over a three-year period.

The final results showed that pickup trucks were the most reliable, with only 29 percent of all claims involving the vehicles. That is particularly impressive when you consider that pickup trucks are among the most popular automobiles for drivers across the U.S., and they are frequently used in intense situations that could lead to damage. However, pickups are also engineered to be more rugged and handle these extreme scenarios, which may contribute to their durability. 

Following pickup trucks were sedans, which accounted for 34 percent of all claims, and SUVs, which made up 39 percent. Minivans were the least reliable, with 41 percent of all claims involving these passenger vehicles. 

These results may demonstrate general trends, but there are a number of opportunities for drivers to find individual models that are extremely reliable. Whether you are searching for something that will protect your entire family or provide a cost-effective mode of transportation as you go about your day-to-day life, you may want to consider vehicles that have a reputation for being reliable.
