What’s UK’s Most Reliable Car This 2015?

This year, Japanese and South Korean car brands dominate the top spots at the What Car? Awards. But which car manufacturer bagged the number one spot in terms of reliability?

The What Car? survey revealed that Honda is still the most reliable used car manufacturer in the United Kingdom. The Japanese automaker has been given this prestigious award for nine years now, according to What Car? and Warranty Direct.

Other Japanese and South Korean car brands that have always been included in the list include Suzuki and Toyota, bagging the second and third places respectively.

What Car? editor Jim Holder said: “Honda’s success in the reliability index is chiefly down to low failure rates. However, when things do go wrong, the cars are also relatively cheap to fix.”

“Reliability is always one of the key attributes buyers look for when considering a used car purchase, so manufacturers that consistently demonstrate durability will always do well with the consumer.”

Each vehicle has been subjected to Warranty Direct’s Reliability Index, which has been analyzed by What Car? experts using a complex formula that considers a vehicle’s failure rate, age, cost of repair and mileage. David Gerrans, Warranty Direct managing director said, ‘Household budgets continue to be stretched further in the current economic climate; the last thing people need is a car that costs them money they don’t have in unwanted bills… It is imperative that consumers research their intended purchases thoroughly before taking the plunge. Not taking the time to look over something as easy to use as our Reliability Index could mean making the wrong choice and inadvertently landing yourself with a car that causes you nothing but hassle and a financial headache.”
