The most and least reliable car engines
An engine is fundamental for four-wheeled propulsion, so when it fails to work it’s a big problem – and potentially an expensive one at that. Here is the list of the 10 best and 10 worst manufacturers for engine reliability according to 2012 data from warranty company Warranty Direct.

warrenty direct is as fake as this blog. they are another fraud that get away with it like some of the cars they claim to be good or bad.
How can you claim that MG Rover makes the most unrelable engines when they haven't made one for EIGHT YEARS!!! And to make matters worse, you've posted a picture of the new MG6, which isn't even made by the same company!!! Utter rubbish
Yet another bunch of rubbish turned out by a schoolboy on a small sample just to make the headlines.
I wonder if any brown envelopes have passed hands in the compiling of this survey.
Fiat, who with any knowledge of cars would buy one of those ?
Where is Skoda ? They win all sorts of awards.
I'd love to know where you get your information from.
I've driven Beemer's for 20 yrs or more and they've never let me down.
And you've got a FIAT down as a reliable car!!!!
Come off it you've having a laugh aren't you???
The MG Rover model shown isn't! It's an MG which is now manufactured in China and assembled in the UK. Presumably Warranty Direct mean the old Phoenix Four owned MG Rover which went bust!
Whoever compiles these articles really should try harder. I presume you'll have loads of photos on file of MG Rovers. Perhaps a bit more research might have prevented this schoolboy error!
I've had my Honda Civic for 10 years, it has NEVER let me down - it is 14 years old this year. Still looks good, drives well and is very reliable and nippy, Could do with modernising ie: slow electric windows and heating motor and old fashioned seat/interior trim,. but thats it. The only downside is insurance class is sport. Honda Civic Vtis 1795cc.
My husband asks every year if I want another car, never. Even if I win the lottery it will have the biggest makeover ever.
I love my Honda.
My car is now 27 years old and I've owned it for the last 10 years, got no plans to change it, if I do it'll be for another.
I don't know on what timescale these judgements are made. In my younger days, I would get rid of a car if within a year or two its engine was giving me grief.
Five years ago I bought a quite old, low mileage, VW 2.8 V6. The engine is fantastic. Never given me a problem - it behaves like a teenager on drugs or an old man on a walking stick! It has never let me down.
What an engine!
