I was told by all the so called experts ( inc Clarkson renta mouth ) that the MG zr was crap and was always breaking down, and the build was terrible - well I have owned an MG zr + 1.4 ( 105 bhp ) since 2005 when the firm closed down through the "6 bastards" who sold out to the Chinese, and left 5000 poor buggers without a job. I bought my MG off one of the workers who was desperate for cash. I have had the car for 7 years, it has "NEVER" let me down, and has performed brilliantly, all that time. I have owned about 20 cars in my lifetime, and this one is as good as any of them - in fact the best !
Some of these "Experts" sometimes talk for the sake of talking
I'm a private hire cab driver and I have had a 2003 Toyota Avensis for five years. Never had any trouble and its built like a tank. It's amazingly economical too. Generally Japanese cars are the most reliable. The Japs are streets ahead even of VW and other German brands which, although good cars, are ridiculously overpriced and more likely to let you down.
You have to ask yourself why most taxi drivers choose Toyota Avensis?
The new world we live in: all cars apart from one american model are all Asian.
time to wake up to what the global powers will be in the next 10 years
I've had 21 cars over the years, brand new Rangerovers and Freelanders breaking down (meaning a mechanical problem) etc, Subaru's Toyotas, Mitsubishi's Hyundai's have taken me all over the world clocking up 500.000 plus miles and have never let me down.
The tables are very accurate but Honda prove that british built cars can be very reliable it depends on the workforce and suppiers, why do you think that both BMW and Ford walked away from Landrover? and yet it takes an Indian Co to break down the workshy and bad supplier chain culture there!
It is almost all to Asina made cars, the Chevrolet here is made by GM but its design comes out of the an Asian brand that they bought a couple of years ago. I believe it was Hundai but I may be wrong.
I have now owned 5 Mercs over nearly 12 years and have never had a problem with reliabiliy, one had some rust at 125,000 but it never broke down.....I don't trust all these statistics. A couple of months ago the worst cars were French made and in this latest survey there are no French brands...what's up?
Just don't trust statistics I'd say.
I used to have a BMW, nice but not great on the reliability front.
Am now on my second Subaru Legacy. They are just fantastic, never go wrong.
