At this year’s Which? Car reliability survey, the largest ever owner satisfaction survey in the UK with over 100,000 cars rated, Honda stole the spotlight. Honda’s previous generation Civic, Accord, FR-V and CR-V all won in their respective categories. The Honda Jazz, which is the Honda Fit in the US, was said to be the most reliable new car with a rating of 96 percent.
The only surprise from Honda was the poor reliability rating of the latest Civic which received a rating of 82 percent. Owners reported problems with the fuel system, steering and suspension.
Other disappointments included the VW Passat, contrary to Volkswagen”s reputation for reliability, the Peugeot 307 and Renault Megane, all with 82 per cent.
Honda as a brand had an overall reliability index of 86 per cent. Toyota ended up one point behind.
Behind the two Japanese giants, Daihatsu, Hyundai, Lexus, Mazda, Subaru and Suzuki all scored 82 per cent. Land Rover, as always, was at the bottom with 68 per cent, behind Renault and Fiat.
