Honda Win What Car? Reliability Award for 9th Year
Honda has been named the Most Reliable Car Manufacturer for the ninth consecutive year, according to research by What Car? and Warranty Direct.
The Japanese manufacturer topped the annual survey of 38 manufacturers, which analyses data on over 50,000 cars between three and eight-years-old.
What Car? editor Jim Holder said: "Honda’s success in the reliability index is chiefly down to low failure rates. But, when things do go wrong, the cars are also relatively cheap to fix.
"Reliability is always one of the key attributes buyers look for when considering a used car purchase, so manufacturers that consistently demonstrate durability will always do well with the consumer."
The unique Reliability Index used in the survey calculates each vehicle’s reliability using a complex formula that takes into account its failure rate, age, mileage and cost of repair. The lower the RI number, the more trustworthy the car.
Universal Honda Ltd. Managing Director Adrian Cole commented: ‘To win an award for reliability is always a great honour for us at Honda, as it speaks volumes about the quality and durability of our cars. This study is made all the more important by the fact that it is our 9th year in a row to take the win, demonstrating the consistently strong performance of Honda in the area of reliability over so many years.’
