Recalls can represent dangerous safety issues and hours of potential inconvenience for car owners.

A new study by automotive research firm iSeeCars.com determined which models have the highest and lowest recall rates and also found that recall rates can be indicative of a car’s quality, providing another valuable resource for consumer research.

iSeeCars.com collected the number of distinct vehicle recall campaigns from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) recall database as of May 1, 2018, for each model from model years 2013 - 2017. It then calculated an average recall rate (number of recall campaigns/year per 100,000 new car units sold) for each model. Finally, it compared these recall rates to Used Car Reliability ratings from Consumer Reports (CR), a trusted consumer-oriented non-profit organization.
