Honda has been rated the UK's most reliable car manufacturer in the What Car? and
Warranty Direct reliability study. The Japanese motoring giant out-performed its rivals to
hit the top of the What Car? league table thanks to a rock-bottom nine per-cent first year
failure rate. Furthermore, the capable HR-V and CR-V sports utility vehicles were rated
first and second in their sector, and the Civic came third in the small hatchback category.
What Car? Editor In Chief, Chas Hallett, commented: 'the success of Honda in this year's
reliability study is very impressive - especially as this is Honda’s sixth overall win as the
UK’s most reliable car maker. Reliability is key for car buyers. The car makers at the
bottom of the study have a lot of work to do to catch up with Honda'.

What Car? is not the only prestigious title to recognise Honda's exceptional reliability.
The 2011 Which? Car Survey named this dependable constructor the Most Reliable
Brand. Furthermore, this year's JD Power Vehicle Ownership Satisfaction Study saw
Honda retain the number two spot in the overall league table – the highest-placed volume
manufacturer. Sounds like hassle-free ownership is virtually guaranteed. Excellent work.
