What Car? magazine and Warranty Direct’s annual reliability survey named Honda the most reliable used car brand.
What Car? editor in chief Chas Hallett said: “When a car leaves the car makers’ warranty protection, it can start to cost the consumer cash and inconvenience. This research highlights that this does not happen often with a Honda.”
This is the 7th consecutive year when Honda is names the most reliable used car brand and according to the survey, the probability of a Honda car breakdown in a 12-month period is 10%. Following Honda in the reliability survey is Toyota, with a 17% failure rate for the same period of 12 months. On the third place is Lexus with 18%, and Land Rover was the 11th years in a row on the last place with a 71% 12-month failure rate. Audi, Mercedes and Jaguar were also among the 10 least reliable. Chevrolet, was the only non-Asian car maker to be ranked among the 10 most reliable used cars.
Honda UK managing director Dave Hodgetts said: “Success in reliability studies like this further proves the dedication, skill and passion of our engineers, both at the development and manufacturing stages.”
