Fleets say Honda Civic and Ford Transit are top for reliability

Fleet News has surveyed contract hire and leasing companies in order to establish which cars and vans have the best reliability records; the study covers fleets representing over a million vehicles.
Where cars are concerned, Japanese and German models – perhaps predictably – dominate. In fact, all of the ten most reliable cars are from German or Japanese-owned groups, although the Mini (8) and Toyota Avensis (9) are actually built in the UK – and future Honda Jazzes (3) will be.
Most reliable car (Fleet News survey):
2.BMW 3 Series
5.BMW 5 Series
7.Mercedes Benz C-Class
Among vans, though, the picture is rather different. The Vauxhall Astravan (2) is built in the UK – as are many Ford Transits (1) – although these days, lots Transits are made in Turkey, alongside the smaller Transit Connect (3). Mercedes' Sprinter – popular among van-drivers because of its zippy performance – was the fourth most reliable van, according to the survey.
