Petrol Honda CR-Vs perform far better than their diesel-engined equivalents, with just 11% experiencing a fault. On petrol-engined cars, none of the faults that did appear concerned the engine, either, and were instead split evenly between the braking systems and the gearbox / clutch. Honda dealers repaired all of these the same day and charged no fees. 

Mini Countryman front - 19 plate

Of the few (5%) Mini Countrymans which did experience issues, the main areas affected were the interior trim and non-engine electrics. All examples remained driveable and all were fixed in less than a week without costing their owners a penny. Other qualities that we like about the Mini Countryman, aside from its reliability, include its keen handling, its spacious boot and its good-quality interior.

Toyota RAV4

It should be no surprise to see Toyota do well here – the Japanese brand has a solid reputation for reliability whether it's building city cars or pick-up trucks, and as our results show, it's well earned. Only 3% of all Toyota RAV4s had a problem, and even then the only area affected was non-engine electrics. As you might expect, all fixes were carried out under warranty and completed in less than a week.
