Poll Reveals Britons’ Favourite Cars

Japanese carmakers are the UK’s most reliable used car brands, according to a survey of cars, between three and 10 years old, released on 25 July.

The poll was conducted by UK car buyers’ guide What Car? and the British insurer Warranty Direct.

Based on 50,000 responses, Honda, in first place for the seventh consecutive year, has only a 10% chance of breaking down. The Honda HR-V (’98-’06) was voted the most reliable model overall.

Brands Toyota and Lexus were ranked second and third, respectively, while Suzuki was in fourth and Subaru in fifth place.
