Honda tops reliability survey involving more than 30,000 drivers

Time 9:47 am, February 2, 2016

HONDA emerged as the most reliable car brand in a survey carried out by Organisation of Consumers and Users and involving more than 30,000 European drivers.

Overall, Honda ranked top of the survey, receiving a reliability rating of 93/100 and with further 79 per cent of survey respondents saying that they would recommend a Honda vehicle.

The Honda Jazz was rated as the top car in terms of reliability in the ‘utility’ vehicles category.

The OCU aimed to find out if owners had experienced breakdowns in the past year and tried to discover out the type of problems drivers had experienced.

From this data, they established a reliability index which can be used to compare the likelihood of a breakdown between different makes and models on the market.

Honda Motor Europe’s senior vice president, Philip Ross, said: ‘Reliability and quality are synonymous with the Honda brand.

‘The results of the survey highlight the importance of the quality commitments Honda has made to its customers.’
