Reliability: 7th win for Honda

2012-07-27 07:56

JAZZ STAYS IN TUNE: Honda's Jazz and other products are the 'most reliable used buy' according to Which? magazine. This was the 2010 model.

 

LONDON, England - Honda has been named the most reliable used car brand in the UK's annual What Car? and Warranty Direct reliability survey for an unprecedented seventh year in a row.

According to the report, a Honda is the least likely car to fail on the open road: there's only a one in 10 chance of a breakdown in any given year.

'SPECTACULAR RECORD'

What Car?'s editor-in-chief Chas Hallett said: "Honda deserves a special mention; seven years at the top of the annual awards is a great achievement. When a car leaves warranty protection it can start to cost its owner cash and inconvenience - this research highlights that it doesn't not happen often with a Honda."

Warranty Direct’s MD Duncan McClure Fisher added: "Honda has continued its spectacular record in the annual reliability study. It has proved its ability over many years to manufacture cars that continue to be extremely reliable beyond the usual three-year warranty period. If you're in the market for a used vehicle, our study suggests you should seriously consider a Honda."

Dave Hodgetts, MD of Honda (UK), concludedL: “The reliability of our cars is a key focus as we strive to make every second of Honda ownership an enjoyable experience. Success in reliability studies such as this proves the dedication, skill and passion of our engineers and we are incredibly proud to be the most reliable manufacturer in the industry.”

LUCKY SEVEN

Seven as proved to be a lucky number for Honda in 2012 - there are seven cars in the (UK) range and this is the seventh accolade for the company so far in 2012.

The British-built Jazz was named 'Britain’s Best Used Supermini' by consumer campaigner Which? and was also given the top spot in the 2012 JD Power owner satisfaction survey’s supermini category for the ninth year running.

Other wins include the CR-V being named most popular 4x4 in the Honest John Awards, the Jazz Hybrid taking the trophy in the Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards eco car category and the new British built Civic taking the Parkers medium hatchback category, plus it beat all other competitors to take the overall Parkers Cost of Motoring New Car Awards overall title.
