RELIABLE AS THE UNIVERSE: Honda's CR-V has come out tops for its reliability, according a UK vehicle survey. Image: Newspress

LONDON, England - The annual Which? Car Survey has named the Honda CR-V 2.2 i-VTEC the UK’s most reliable 4x4/SUV up to three years old because it had:

  • Zero reported breakdowns
  • Average annual repair costs of only R177
  • An overall reliability score of 98.5% over 12 months.

Furthermore the CR-V shone through with 0.14 faults reported, compared to 0.88 for the worst performing in its category; and 0.11 days off the road, with the worst performing recording an average 1.09 days.


Based on feedback from more than 49 000 owners reporting on some 58 000 cars over a 12-month period, a number of factors are considered to give each vehicle tested an overall reliability score. The survey is carried out online, open to both Which? members and the public.

Leon Brannan, head of cars for Honda (UK), commented: “It’s fantastic to see Honda’s excellent reputation for reliability recognised yet again, particularly from a name as respected and trusted as Which?. It’s also really useful to get feedback from customers living with a Honda day in, day out, as this gives us insight which we can use to continually maintain our high levels of service.

"This latest Which? Car Survey result further underlines Honda’s enviable reputation for reliability, endorsed with a host of independent plaudits over the last decade. In 2013 Honda topped the What Car? and Warranty Direct Reliability Survey for an incredible eighth successive year."
