FWIW, ID.4 has terrible reliability ratings at https://www.consumerreports.org/car-rel ... 824554938/
, which is no surprise for VW. Unfortunately, it's behind a paywall (but I subscribe).
VW is ranked 24 out of 28. ID.4 got a reliability score of 21 out of 100. I glanced thru the top 10 brands on that list and the highest scoring car in that metric was the Lexus GX at 100. The next highest I saw there within the top 10 brands was the Prius Prime w/a 93.
I'm not a fan of buying a car w/scores that low. Lease, maybe I might be able to tolerate it but in my book, something that needs to go back to the shop a lot is junk. There are plenty of other autos that don't need that esp. within the 1st 3 to 5 years. I generally avoid cars w/below average reliability ratings but 21 out of 100 is way below average.
Tesla was ranked 27/28. Model S got a 20 out of 100. The Model 3 is the only one that does ok there w/59 out of 100.
