Honda has once again been named the most reliable car manufacturer in the annual What Car? and Warranty Direct Reliability Survey.
This result means Honda has taken the much sought after title for an unprecedented eight years in a row, further reinforcing Honda’s reputation for building rocksolid, 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 over 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 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 SUV.
Chas Hallett, editor in chief, What Car? magazine added “Eight years at the top of the annual What Car?/Warranty Direct Reliability 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.” Adrian Cole, Managing Director, Universal Honda Ltd. commented; “Reliability is at the heart of all our research, development and manufacturing processes and this ensures we build reliable and high quality cars.”
