Honda was named the most reliable used car brand in the annual What Car? and Warranty Direct reliability survey for an unprecedented seventh year in a row. According to the report, Honda cars are the least likely to leave passengers stranded by the roadside, with just a one in 10 chance of breakdown in any 12-month period.
Chas Hallett, What Car? editor in chief, said: “Honda definitely deserve a special mention, seven years at the top of the annual What Car?/Warranty Direct research is a great achievement. When a car leaves the carmaker’s warranty protection it can start to cost the consumer cash and inconvenience. This research highlights that this does not happen often with a Honda”.
Warranty Direct’s managing director, Duncan McClure Fisher, added: “Honda has continued its spectacular record in the annual reliability study. It has proven its ability over many years to manufacture cars that continue to be extremely reliable beyond the usual three-year warranty period. If you are in the market for a used vehicle, our study suggests you should seriously consider a Honda.”
