A British What Car? once again compiled a list of the 50 most reliable used cars. Their 13,000 readers reported personal experiences. The order was based on the frequency of failures, but service costs and repair time also played a role.
Not one, but three 100 percent cars were found in the survey: none of these have had any malice in the past 12 months. All three cars are Japanese: the Honda Jazz, manufactured between 2008 and 2015, the mass-market recreational vehicles of the previous-generation Toyota RAV4, while the premium crossovers are represented in the list by the currently available Lexus RX 450h.
The picture in the top 10 is quite mixed: in addition to two premium models (Lexus NX Hybrid, Alfa Romeo Giulietta), two city cars (the previous Toyota Yaris Hybrid and the current Hyundai i20), two cars (Škoda Citigo and the previous Hyundai i10) , as well as a Dacia, the current Duster.
Sixth-placed Dacia Duster anyway the most reliable car made in Europe, preceded by a Honda and four hybrids of the Toyota Group.
Four brands stand out from the entire list: Lexus gave the most premium cars (5 generations of 4 types), Škoda is the winner of the mass market (6 engine variants of type 6), but the Mazda and the Toyota also performed well With 4-4 reliability peaks. VW, Hyundai and Ford made the list with three cars each, with Honda exclusively hitting the level from Honda, but right away with its two generations.
