Car survey .
Amazing to see the Japanese claimed the top ten places .
The 10 most reliable cars according to Warranty Direct:
1.Honda Accord - A classy package, well put together and feels more special than the average family car. Superb engines and value for money.
2.Subaru Forester - Not quite an off roader, much more than an estate with a sporty edge, making it the perfect combination. Great all round buy.
3.Mazda MX-5 - Blueprint for the modern roadster with sweet handling and engines to match. Extremely easy to live with.
4.Mitsubishi Carisma - Despite the name, not that interesting to look at or drive, but that's not the point. Here is a no-nonsense hatchback that won't let you down.
5.Toyota Yaris - Superminis don't come better. Bags of room and perky engines. Probably the best small car buy.
6.Honda Civic - Solid build quality and good engines are just part of the appeal, the Civic is one of the most spacious small cars around. Great value.
7.Nissan Almera - A dull package, but that's no reason to dismiss the Almera which is practical and perfect for the smaller family who need a big boot and utter reliability.
8.Honda CR-V - Proof that you don't need an XXXL 4x4. Here is a four-wheel drive estate that is flexible, easy to drive and own.
9.Toyota RAV4 - So few four-wheel drives are fun to drive. This car is suitably sporty, but very practical. Expensive used buy but worth it.
10.Nissan Micra - The driving school favourite. Tough, fairly roomy, but with its light controls is easy to steer around town.
