The table below shows the two key factors in assessing the reliability of a car i.e. how often it needs repairing and how much it costs to put it right. TIP: The lower the reliability index the more reliable the car is.

Here we display the key mechanical parts of a vehicle that commonly go wrong and show you how the vehicles you chose compare against each other.

Electrical problems are often the most frustrating to deal with as the vehicle has normally not “broken down”. Take a look at the differences between the vehicles you chose to see how likely a failure is and what to look out for.

The average age and mileage of the vehicles we hold data for should be taken into account when looking into their Reliability Index scores or the percentages on parts. More often than not a newer model will have a lower Reliability score than 6 year old vehicles with 70,000 miles on the clock.
