Honda named UK's 'Most Reliable Car Manufacturer'

Honda has further cemented its reputation for producing reliable vehicles after being lauded by industry publication What Car?

The magazine has named the Japanese-owned firm, which runs an assembly plant in Swindon, as the UK's most reliable car manufacturer.

It comes after What Car? And Warranty Direct carried out a reliability study and is the sixth consecutive year that Honda has landed the title.

Chas Hallett, What Car? editor in chief, commented: "The success of Honda in this years' 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."

Honda secured the win by boasting a failure rate of just nine per cent in the first 12 months.

The firm's SUVs came in for particular praise, with the HR-V and CR-V at number one and two in their class.
