An interesting survey below carried out by Fleet News regarding the reliability of vehicles according to some of the largest contract hire and leasing companies…
BMW produces the most reliable company cars in the UK and Ford the most reliable vans, according to a survey of the 50 largest contract hire and leasing companies.
The German car maker repeated its double victory in last year’s Fleet News FN50 survey coming top as most reliable car manufacturer as well as having three cars in the top 10 with the top spot taken by the 3 Series. In fact it was a good year for German brands with the Volkswagen Golf moving up one place from last year and the third-placed Audi A4 is five positions higher than in 2011.
The Honda Civic (predominantly the 2006-2011 model) takes fourth place after a brief absence from the top 10 and Honda demonstrates its consistence in producing reliable cars with the Accord in fifth position, retaining a long record in the top five of the survey.
The lower half of the top 10 contains three cars absent from the rankings in 2011, the first being the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in sixth place, one position ahead of the Audi A3.
The BMW 1 Series and Ford Focus scored equal points to achieve joint eighth place and the final place in the top 10 is taken by the BMW 5 Series, proving the latest version of the car is as reliable as its predecessor.
Tim Abbott, managing director at BMW UK, says: “To have three of our biggest selling cars in the top ten is a fantastic achievement and our customers will take great heart from realising they not only drive a class-leading car in terms of efficiency and driving pleasure but also one that is the most reliable too.
