HONDA has once again been named the most reliable car manufacturer in the annual What Car? and Warranty Direct Reliability
HONDA has once again been named the most reliable car manufacturer in the annual What Car? and Warranty Direct Reliability Survey. This means Honda has taken the much sought-after title for an unprecedented eight years in a row, further reinforcing Honda’s reputation for building rock-solid, dependable cars.
This achievement is attributed to Honda’s robust manufacturing practices which have resulted in low failure rates and lower-than-average repair costs for customers.
The What Car? and Warranty Direct Reliability Survey is based on real claims data and is a compilation of reviews and opinions of more than 50,000 car owners. It takes into account the average yearly repair costs, common model issues and the owners’ overall reliability score for their car.
Honda models feature prominently throughout the survey, with the British-built Jazz and Civic continuing to do well in their respective classes, as does the Accord, while the HR-V was named the most reliable compact Sports Utility Vehicle, or SUV.
Chas Hallett, editor in chief of What Car? magazine added: “Eight years at the top of the annual study is a remarkable achievement for Honda.
“This study is based on hard facts and figures and is confirmation that Honda makes great cars that are unlikely to let down their owners.”
