Car Warranty & Extended Warranty

Manufacturer Ratings

All of Warranty Direct’s 50,000 live policies are used to build up a particular manufacturer’s ratings into one figure that should expose whether cars from this stable are generally reliable - or maybe not! Perhaps most models lack in a certain area, Audis suspensions might be a case in point. Any manufacturer can introduce the occasional misfit but this rating might give you the confidence to consider a later model edition or an alternative model from the same marque – or satisfy your general misgivings and encourage you to look elsewhere! Due to this being an average a single high or low scoring model can disproportionately affect the result however.
