U.K:Mazda tops reliability poll

BBC News
UK Edition

Mazda has been named the most reliable motor manufacturer in the UK.
The Japanese car giant topped a poll organised by insurance company Warranty Direct.

A Warranty Direct spokesman said problems with Mazda cars were "few and far between" and the cars "aged well".

"Infrequent garage visits, quick repair times and reasonable bills have kept it as the most reliable manufacturer in the UK," he said.

The second most reliable car, the survey suggests, is Ford, thanks mainly to its low annual repair cost of 208.

The average age of the vehicles analysed was 4.8 years, with 49,702 miles on the clock.


Jeep was the worst performer, with an average repair bill of 587.92, and 41 claims per 100 insurance policies held.

Jeeps were afflicted by air conditioning failures and rear suspension and axle problems, Warranty Direct said.

Subaru's dramatic fall, from 11th last year to 22nd this year, was largely down to costly repairs to the Impreza's engine and transmission units, with the average bill reaching 1,040.
