5 Car Brands With the Most DUIs
Acura drivers with a prior DUI: 2.26 per 100 (24% higher than the national average)
Worst offender: Acura NSX (4.64 per 100 drivers reporting a prior DUI)
Best behaved: Acura RL (1.03 per 100 drivers reporting a prior DUI)
As Honda’s luxury brand, Acura is known for sleek styling and sporty performance while still maintaining Honda’s characteristic reliability. Some Acura drivers, however, have proven unreliable behind the wheel: 2.26 per 100 Acura drivers report having a DUI within the past seven years, a share that’s 24% higher than the national average. The brand’s worst offender is also quite the head-turner. With an MSRP over $170,000, the Acura NSX is a top-of-the-line performance vehicle whose drivers accrue DUIs over 2.5 times more often than the typical motorist.

Audi drivers rack up DUI citations 27% more often than the national average, placing the brand fourth on the list of car makes with the most DUIs.

Buick drivers with a prior DUI: 2.41 per 100 (32% higher than the national average)
Worst offender: Buick Lucerne (3.33 per 100 drivers reporting a prior DUI)
Best behaved: Buick Encore GX (1.03 per 100 drivers reporting a prior DUI)
Though the list of car makes with the most DUIs is full of sporty brands, Buick bucks this trend. Rather a pure luxury manufacturer, Buick focuses on providing comfort and style at a more accessible price point. Still, Buick drivers report DUIs at a rate that’s 32% higher than the national average, with 2.41 per 100 motorists having one on record. The manufacturer is second overall on the list of car brands with most DUIs, though its worst offender, the Buick Lucerne, has the lowest DUI rate of any worst offender among the top five brands.
Pontiac drivers with a prior DUI: 2.55 per 100 (39% higher than the national average)
Worst offender: Pontiac Bonneville (3.68 per 100 drivers reporting a prior DUI)
Best behaved: Pontiac Solstice (1.40 per 100 drivers reporting a prior DUI)
Though the Pontiac brand proved successful for decades, General Motors finally retired the division in 2010. In the 10-plus years since, Pontiac owners maintained their presence on the roads, though in too many instances they’ve also driven while intoxicated. A full 2.55 out of every 100 Pontiac drivers report a DUI on record, a share that’s 39% higher than the national average. While drivers of the brand’s best behaved model, the Pontiac Solstice, have a below-average rate of DUIs, they still accrue such citations more often than any other best behaved model, helping to make Pontiac the number one car brand with the most DUIs in 2021.
