The BMW 3-Series is the most reliable company car in the UK, according to Fleet
News. The FN50 survey, which evaluated 1.2 million vehicles, is a report based on the
experiences of the UK's fifty largest leasing companies (based on fleet size). This is the
second year in a row that this compact executive status symbol has claimed the top prize.
Tim Abbott, Managing Director at BMW UK, said: “We are delighted to have won the
overall honour in the FN50 reliability survey. The outgoing BMW 3 Series Saloon and
the 3 Series range overall has been and continues to be an outstanding success for
us. Awards such as this ensure customers can buy a class-leading vehicle safe in the
knowledge that only years of enjoyable, hassle free motoring in a premium car await.”
The FN50 runner-up, for the second consecutive year, is the Honda Accord – and
the Volkswagen Golf is third. In fact, every vehicle in the top ten is either German or
Japanese. The survey also reveals that nine of the ten most reliable manufacturers
originate from these countries. Other customer satisfaction reports have similar findings.
