London, July 20(ANI): A British research has found that five of the top six reliable cars in Britain are Japanese, however, three of them are manufactured in Britain itself.
Warranty Direct, which compiled the Manufacturer Reliability Index top ten, listed Honda, which has its plant in Wiltshire, as the leader in the list of reliable cars, The Mirror.co.uk reports.
While, third is Derby-based Toyota and Nissan, which has a factory in Sunderland, is sixth in the list.
The research has also found that Honda-buyers can drive convincingly knowing that there is only a 10 per cent chance of a breakdown, when the car is between three and six years old.
On the other hand, Japanese companies- Mazda, Subaru and Mitsubishi- were also high in the index.
Reacting on the index, Honda spokesman Steve Kirk expressed pleasure and said: "We're delighted to be top of the tree. It's testament to our great workers at places like Swindon."
The index estimated the most dependable used cars among 250 popular models.
At the bottom of the table, Land Rover was listed with a 47 per cent chance of a breakdown, while Renault and Saab ended up just behind the Rover. (ANI)
