Luxury cars are usually the first to get all the latest technology and generally come kitted out will every bell and whistle you can think of. That means they could cost you dear if they develop a fault, so it's important to choose a model that owners have rated as reliable.

In our 2017 Reliability Survey, we asked more than 14,200 people to tell us about any faults their cars had suffered during the past 12 months. We asked how long the problem kept the car off the road and how much they'd had to pay to get it fixed.

Those that had the least problems and were cheapest to fix gained the top ratings, and those that languished in workshops for days on end and racked up expensive repair bills were given the lowest ratings.

Here's our round-up of the best and worst performers in the luxury car league.
