Your car is likely to be your second biggest monthly expense, only surpassed by mortgage or rent payments, so it’s vitally important that it’s dependable to ensure you don’t end up regularly shelling out extra money to get it fixed.

So it’s easy to understand why reliability is a priority for many car buyers. In fact, it’s also a reason cited by many motorists for buying a new car rather than spending less on a secondhand vehicle.

However, buying new, or nearly new with some of the manufacturer’s warranty still remaining, is no guarantee that you’ll get trouble-free motoring. Around 30% of owners of cars less than four years old who completed the 2018 What Car? Reliability Survey told us their car had suffered at least one fault in the past 12 months.
