The most reliable used car makes – and the least
We reveal the results of our reliability survey data showing how well older cars measure up...
The UK’s most and least reliable secondhand cars have been revealed in the What Car? Used Car Reliability Survey from the country's leading consumer champion and new car buying platform.
