For the second year running Honda has achieved second place overall in the J.D. Power Survey, scoring highly across all four categories - vehicle quality and reliability, vehicle appeal, service satisfaction and ownership costs.

The latest results mean Honda has appeared in the top five spot for the past five surveys. The Jazz yet again finished first in its class, making it four years in a row and an unbroken record since Jazz was first included in the 2004 results. The Jazz also finished third in the overall model ranking table, making it Honda’s highest achieving model to appear.

Matt Gibson, Head of Customer Department said: “The J.D. Power Survey is very important to us as we continue to strive to give our customers the best experience. This year we’ve closed the gap on the leading manufacturer, and achieving second place for the second year running is a great result, which we will push hard to improve.”

A boot load of achievements

In addition to success in the J.D. Power Survey, Honda has also scooped the following booty:

Sales Update

The almighty Jazz continues to record impressive results in the supermini sector with total sales reaching 11,893 in 2007 to date. This puts the Jazz third in the sales league table.

Since its launch in January this year, the Civic Type-R has raced up the sales table, clocking up more than 1,800 registrations. Meanwhile, the Civic 3-door and 5-door models continue their attack on the sales charts. With over 13,000 units sold this year across the four variants, the combination of futuristic styling and practicality clearly still resonates with buyers.(Civic 3-door: 1,894 petrol, 673 diesel. Civic 5-door: 6,781 petrol and 3,948 diesel.)
Plus, the Honda CR-V remains the best-selling sports utility vehicle this year, a title justified by the J.D. Power survey, in which CR-V was voted second in its segment.

Total sales of 8,133 petrol and diesel models during the first four months of the year, make the CR-V more popular than its closest rivals.
