How We Rank These Cars

iSeeCars Generations Rating is calculated based on the latest research from our data science team.

The iSeeCars Generations Rating is an analysis of two factors: reliability and safety. It is calculated for each model generation based on the analysis of over 312 million cars using a proprietary mathematical model that estimated the probability that each vehicle would survive to various mileage thresholds. This survival model was used to calculate the average lifespan of each vehicle generation, which forms the basis of the reliability score. The safety score is based on NHTSA safety ratings.

Vehicles are scored in two categories:

Reliability | 50%

The reliability score represents an analysis of iSeeCars' proprietary research on the longest-lasting vehicles.

Safety | 50%

The safety score is calculated based on the last five years of crash test ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and incorporates the latest Top Safety Pick information from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
