Stunning SUVs With Questionable Reliability

Buying an SUV doesn’t mean you have to buy a giant, ugly vehicle just to get a good towing capacity and extra space. In fact, there are a lot of 2020 SUVs on the road that barely look like an SUV at all, and they’re pretty great options if you don’t want to drive an SUV in the first place. On the other hand, there are some more traditionally formed SUVs that are dynamically designed to create a modern and aggressive style. Having an SUV that looks good might not be a priority to everyone, but many of us do care about how we view our car. What these SUVs have in striking appearances, they may actually lack in reliability.

The first 3 are Land Rovers

Nothing sounds as cool as telling someone you drive a Land Rover, and that’s probably why people continue to buy them regardless of all of the reliability issues there have been in the past, present, and probably future.

Land Rovers have a striking design that is iconic to the brand, and it seems like year after year they get better updates to make the styling even better. What doesn’t seem to be getting any improvements are any of the mechanical problems or reliability issues, and it doesn’t seem like the manufacturer has much interest overall in fixing the repetitive issues for good.

2020 Tesla Model X

Whether you are a fan of electric cars or not, most people would agree that the Tesla Model X is an innovative car that represents the future of the automotive industry. The Model X is one of the more expensive cars in the Tesla lineup, with a starting price of $79,990 and going upwards of $100,000 once you get all of the options and add-ons.

The Tesla Model X isn’t strikingly aggressive, and it doesn’t feature an ornate grille or chrome-decked front fascia, but instead uses a completely minimal and streamlined design to appear even more modern and futuristic. It’s a shame that so many Model X owners have reported constant problems and issues with reliability, but that doesn’t seem to stop people from buying them.

2020 Cadillac Escalade

The Cadillac Escalade is a luxurious and well-styled SUV that has a lot to offer consumers, but what it doesn’t have to offer is a high-reliability reputation. There is one major recall already for this year regarding a leaking fuel line — which can be as scary as it sounds. Owners also complain about other smaller problems with the car, but it is still a great option once everything is fixed.

These SUVs might not be perfect, but they are still great looking vehicles that offer high-end luxury and a slew of safety features. If you can get past the reliability problems and stay on top of recalls these SUVs are still great options, and regardless of any problems people still continue to buy them and enjoy owning them.
