2018-08-30 10:01:13



Honda Cars are by far the most reliable used cars in the UK – with just a 10% chance of breaking down over a year. These results are based on reliable research from 50,000 car insurance policies of 3-10 year old used cars from the well-known car insurance company Warranty Direct UK. The results were published by the leading magazine ‘What Car’, where Honda has topped this survey for seven years running now.

The next most reliable car brand after Honda, was Toyota with a significantly higher chance of breaking down at 17%, putting Honda cars in the undisputed first place for reliability.

Interestingly, it’s the more expensive cars such as Mercedes Benz (45% chance of breakdown) come in the bottom 10, with Land Rover (a staggering 71% chance of a breakdown every year) at the very bottom!

Chris Hallet from What Car?' said of Honda’s performance "Reliability is so important to motorists, especially when times are tough. Japanese car makers really do deliver on reliability and Honda is exceptionally good at this”

The most frequently occurring breakdown problems were with axle and suspension, followed by electrical problems.

At Mekor Honda we’re extremely proud of this record, as reliability is even more important for the demanding South African roads. Speak to any one of our thousands of happy Honda car buyers, and we’re sure they will agree. Honda is the most reliable car brand you can buy!
