Warrantywise Reliability Stats

These tables make for some interesting reading and certainly throws a question mark over the use of the phrase "Premium Brands"

Another reason not to want the GTR...

Land Rover, consistently unreliable for 40 years.

It would be interesting to know the average age of the cars by manufacturer.

Good question but I'd guess the Japs would actually be older than most (especially the Almera Tino).

Daihatsu the most reliable brand.... considering they stopped selling cars over here many moons ago.......

Indeed, what with Rover being the 8th most reliable brand.

And I notice that the least reliable cars all have average repairs more expensive than the most reliable. I suspect that they may not break down any more, but they costs a lot to fix. Hardly a surprise as they are expensive cars in the first place.
Martin

Don't know how it's measured, but the ranking is based in the reliability rating rather than the cost, but you'd think that cost would be a factor in the rating calculation.

As it's warrantywise I assume they're mainly interested in cost to rectify. I just looked at the list, laughed, and will never look at it again. Utter bollocks.

The highly placed 7 series that would be warranted by them would be those bought from Flash Harry's car emporium for 7-8k and may not have the history they declare to have. Same for the Bentleys: the sheer quantity of Continentals in the non-franchised dealer network means there are many previously run in a budget that get a warranty at whatever price then show the signs of that budget life.

You only need a quick glance at those tables to judge them as a right load of bollocks.

Did am Autotest today, two 52 plate Sirions took part too and did very well. Old Micra's are also extremely popular.

Our financial controller does Autotests and amateur rally's with his son, they have a selection of Micra's (the bubble one) and he swears by them - I think his son has a 1.0 which is eminently tuneable, more so than the 1.3.

I wonder if I've met him? Has he done any around Leighton Buzzard/Dunstable or Northampton?
