If you’ve decided you’re going to scrap your car but can’t decide what make or model to go for next, it always pays to do some research so you can get an idea of what’s out there and which vehicles represent the best value for money.
With the cost of living so astronomically high at the moment, the last thing anyone needs is unexpected bills piling up because of continuous car trouble, so choosing a reliable motor is perhaps the best way to go about finding your next set of wheels.
Luckily, the good folk over at What Car? have just published their 2022 Reliability Survey, so much of the hard work has already been done for you.
Interestingly, the Toyota Aygo came out on top as the most reliable of all the cars right now, with just six per cent of Aygo drivers reporting faults - and the only issue that cropped up was to do with the suspension. In fact, What Car? gave it a reliability rating of 99.1 per cent… which seems like a great recommendation to us.
If you’re not taken with the Toyota, what about the Honda Jazz? This came second in the rundown, with just six per cent of owners reporting problems. Issues that emerged had to do with the interior trim, the bodywork, the suspension and non-engine electrics.
You might want to steer well clear of the Ford Fiesta, however, because this particular car came top as the least reliable of them all. Its fault rate came out at 31 per cent, with many serious issues reported, so it could end up costing you a lot of money in the long run.
Similar research was recently published by Warrantywise, revealing the most unreliable cars in the UK, with the list including some serious luxury brands like Range Rover, BMW, Porsche and Bentley… so make sure you do your homework before you spend any of your hard-earned cash.
