Japanese reliability surpasses all

Japanese cars have come top of the list in reliablity charts posted by Which? magazine in a study they carried out on 90,000 cars from around the world. Honda, Toyota, Daihatsu, Lexus, Mazda, Subaru and Suzuki took the top 7 places in reliability, however Honda's Civic didn't do quite that well coming close to the bottom of the list (for medium sized cars).

That is not to say, however, that European car manufacturers were left completely out. As far as most reliable brand is concerned, Skoda was praised for theirs, outdoing the likes of Mercedes, BMW and Audi.

Top cars in reliability in their own class: Honda Jazz/Skoda Fabia, Skoda Roomster, Volvo C30, Honda Civic Hybrid, Mercedes Benz E Class, Honda FR-V/Seat Altea/ VW Golf Plus, Lexus RX, Audi TT/Mazda MX-5.

Last in reliablity in their own class: Fiat Grande Punto, Suzuki SX4, Honda Civic/Citroen C4, VW Passat/Citroen C5, Ford Galaxy/Ford S-Max, Land Rover Discovery 3, Mercedes-Benz SLK.
