The stats

In a survey carried out by What Car last month, figures put Honda at the top of the reliability lineup – with Bentley rolling in last, thanks to high breakdown figures. Porsche didn’t fare much better, coming in 36th out of a possible 38 places – proving that the luxury car class often comes with more costly repairs.

With low failure figures and rock bottom repair costs, it’s easy to see why Honda has once again topped What Car’s poll of the most reliable used car brands. The brand’s Jazz model might have slipped to second place in this year’s Reliability Index, but there’s no doubting the consistency of the Japanese brand as one of the most reliable car manufacturers.

Why reliability matters

It might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re searching for a new set of wheels, but being smart when it comes to the dependability of your new drive could save you thousands in the long run.

The problem, of course, is in knowing how to tell whether a used car is reliable. Whether you’re buying privately or from a garage, a full service history is key. If there are gaps in MOT certificates or an alarming number of repairs, be sure to recognise the warning signs. While an attractive purchase price might make reliability less of a concern, the future repair bills could end up costing you a princely sum.
