The Most Reliable Car Brands: Named

Do you know what sucks? What really sucks? The fact that your car is going to break down at some point. That’s the same with our bodies though – if we look after them, we’re still going to experience declines in health. It’s natural, and even though cars are mechanical beasts, they still obey natural laws somehow.

Do you know what else sucks? Being stuck with an unreliable heap of junk instead of a car. Car’s break down, but if your car is breaking down more than expected – or more than usual. If you take good care of a car, you can expect it to last for a while, but no matter what you do to your junker, you can’t rely on it to get you from A to B. That’s the bare minimum we expect from our car, so if your car isn’t exactly capable of driving you around anymore, you need to seriously look at getting a new car – and not just that, you need a reliable car.

The Most Reliable Car Brands

Buying a car is hard work, and you’ve got the hardest job of all – you need to find the cash needed to ensure that you can buy a new car. Getting together that cash is a tough job, but as always, we’re here to help. You work on getting the money together for your car and we’ll certainly help – by pointing you in the right direction and naming the most reliable car brands. If you like your Japanese cars, you’re in luck as most of the models and makes are based in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Mitsubishi Lancer


If you’ve got an eye for a real street-fighter of a car, look no further than a Mitsubishi Lancer. The Mitsubishi Lancer is the highest-rated car on the UK’s reliability index, and you’ll certainly do well with a stylish Lancer. It’s got an average repair cost of £69 as well, so your auto repair fees won’t be steep. Mitsubishi is a reliable and stylish brand – so reliability comes at no cost, except cash.


Toyota had a nightmare year a few years aback after widespread failure in a number of safety features lead to them being blacklisted by the public. However, as every good company should, Toyota bounced back and you could do worse than an IQ from the Japanese maker.

The Honda Jazz


Specific makes of Toyota and Mitsubishi make them the most reliable brands, but if you want a choice, go to Honda. The Honda Jazz, Accord, Insight, and Civic are among the most reliable cars going, and you won’t be pigeonholed at all.

Ford Focus


Ford made his name on reliability, and his brand continues it long to this day. The Ford KA isn’t a looker, but it’s one of the most reliable cars on the road – while the Focus (one of the most popular rally cars) is good on the road as well. If you don’t fancy a Japanese ride, go American. Go, Ford! You can get some serious muscle with Ford.
