Honda has been named the most reliable used car brand for the seventh consecutive year in What Car? magazine and Warranty Direct’s annual reliability survey.
According to the survey, the likelihood of a Honda car breakdown in any 12-month period is only 10 per cent.
Toyota followed Honda in the reliability survey, with results revealing a 17 per cent failure rate in the same 12-month period. Lexus was third with 18 per cent, while Land Rover was left trailing last – for the 11th year running – with results revealing a 71 per cent 12-month failure rate.
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.”
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."
