Most reliable cars of 2018 REVEALED – Five cars you can rely on

The most reliable and dependable cars in the UK in 2018 have been revealed.

As part of the 2018 What Car? Reliability Survey thousands of motorists were surveyed about their vehicle to determine its reliability and whether or not they had experienced problems with it.

A total of 31 different car brands and 159 models were considered in the survey of 18,284 car owners in the UK.

It looked at what problems, if any, motorists had experienced with their motor, and focused on drivers who had owned their vehicle between one and four years.

Unsurprisingly, a Japanese car tops the list for reliability.

In fact, two Japanese cars share the crown as the most reliable on the roads in Britain – Toyota Yaris and Suzuki Sx4 S-Cross.

Japanese cars are renowned for their safety and that’s why four of the top five all originated from there, with the Nissan Leaf and Toyota RAV4 taking the 3rd and 4th spots respectively.

Most outstandingly the Toyota Yaris and Suzuki Sx4 S-Cross both were given a 100 per cent reliability rating.

“You want your car to last and you don’t want to have to fork out huge amounts to fix faults and keep it running.

“Our annual survey has shown that it is Japanese models that continue to dominate the top of the reliability rankings, both for car model and brand rankings.”

Topping that list was the Tesla Model S which landed a reliability score of 50.7 per cent.
