For the sixth year running, Honda has been named the most reliable manufacturer in the UK in the latest What Car and Warranty Direct reliability study.
Honda's 9 per cent failure rate in the first 12 months allowed them to beat rivals to the top spot. In the SUV table were the Honda HR-V and CR-V at number one and two. The Honda Jazz and Accord both came in fifth in their classes and the honda Civic placed third in the small hatchback category.
What Car? Editor In Chief, Chas Hallett, said: "The success of Honda in this years' reliability study is very impressive, especially as this is Honda’s sixth overall win as the UK's most reliable car maker. Reliability is key for car buyers. The car makers at the bottom of the study have a lot of work to do to catch up with Honda."
Dave Hodgetts, Managing Director, Honda (UK), commented; "We strive to make every second of Honda ownership an enjoyable experience, and that means looking after our drivers throughout their use of our cars. This all starts with building reliable and high quality cars that are affordable to run and maintain, but continues with service at our dealers that exceeds expectation.
"Success in reliability studies further proves the dedication, skill and passion of our engineers, both at the development and manufacturing stages, and we are incredibly proud to be the most reliable manufacturer in the industry - yet again,"
