The Honda Accord has emerged as the most reliable car on Britain’s roads according to a survey by Which? magazine.
In addition, the Honda brand gained the number one spot for manufacturer reliability in a survey undertaken by Warranty Direct in the UK.
A study of 84,000 cars in the Which? survey found that the Honda Accord gave its owners almost no problems, with 98.5 per cent reporting that their vehicle had required no attention whatsoever last year. The magazine based its reliability survey on whether a car had broken down, been taken back to the dealer or had any niggles over the past 12 months.
