The top 50 most reliable cars

Reliability is one of the most important factors for car buyers, with many people spending hours researching the most reliable models before making their purchase.

However, to save you a lot of time, here we reveal the 50 most reliable cars you can buy, based on the results of our annual reliability survey, conducted in collaboration with MotorEasy

We asked more than 16,000 readers if their car had broken down in the past year, how long those problems kept their car off the road, and how much they had to pay for repairs.

We then used this data to design a What Car? reliability rating, with six being 100% reliable. However, nothing in the top 50 scored worse than 96.8%.

The 2022 Which car? Trustworthiness investigation is now open. Tell us about your car and have a chance to win a great prize in one of our monthly draws >>
