Reliability is one of the most important factors for car buyers, with many people spending hours researching the most dependable models before making their purchase.

To save you a lot of time, though, here we’re revealing the 50 most reliable cars you can buy, based on the results of our annual Reliability Survey, conducted in association with MotorEasy.

We asked more than 16,000 readers if their cars had suffered any faults over the past year, how long those issues kept their cars off the road, and how much they were charged for repairs.

We then used this data to give each model a What Car? reliability rating, with six proving 100% dependable. However, nothing in the top 50 scored worse than 96.8%.
