Reliability has become an ubiquitous label that vehicle manufacturers love to attach to their models. Every car company out there throws the term around as a marketing ploy, a gimmick used to constantly to ingrain in consumer’s heads that their vehicles are more worthy of the customers hard-earned dollars than the next brand. But as the brand’s squabble with language and advertising tactics, there is actual research being done into what makes a vehicle reliable. After previously looking at specific SUV and truck models that rank among the toughest, a brand-wide snapshot of reliability is next on the docket.

Over at Mojo Motors, an algorithm was developed to determine just what ten brands were the most reliable on the road. The formula used a linear regression model to find out how much mileage a vehicle could could compile before losing all value. They looked at more than 500,000 models from years between 1995 and 2014 to determine their results.

What brands lived up to their claims of being reliable? Here is the list of the ten most reliable vehicles on the road and the average mileage accumulated until their value is determined to be $0, according to Mojo Motors’ research.
