Reliability rating 95.8%

There are five Japanese entries in list of the top ten most reliable new cars – and bringing up the rear in tenth place is the Nissan Note. Nissan’s small car achieved a healthy 95.8% reliability rating. It may not be exciting, but it won’t break down. Good show, Nissan.

i must admit my hubby will only buy hondas  as he has always said they are so reliable, for the past 8  years we have had a honda crv and it has been no trouble and before that a honda civic which again very reliable.

So is the UK-built Nissan Note really a Japanese car? The guys in Sunderland have got something to be proud of let's celebrate it's Britishness!

I would like to know out of interest what the percentage variation is between the best and worst. It may turn out that they are mostly good and reliable cars. Also the nature of faults should be taken into consideration. A minor trim rattle or other small issues could result in how a car is rated. Also how a manufacturer deals with problems will have a huge impact on a customers views.

I sold my C1 last year.  It was a diesel, utterly reliable, with amazing fuel economy.

Apart from routine servicing, it cost me £1.67 for a replacement cover for the windscreen wiper.

A richly deserved bronze medal position and, had Citroen introduced the new model that was promised instead of just tarting up the old model, I'd have bought the car again.

It's an ideal car for someone who just wants a car that doesn't let you down, ever!

My mid 1920's car,now 86 yrs old, is utterly reliable.Will take me anywhere from the south coast to the north of Scotland as it did in April this year with not a motorway in sight.Easy to maintain relatively cheap insurance,Not a fast car but with todays urban speed limits 40-45 mph is comfortable.After more than 32 years ownership I have not found a replacement but still keep looking!!

Don't get pulled by the plate.

 

I have an old Lexus LS400 that has been crashed, trashed and chewed by my dogs when pups.

It starts first time every time after weeks of neglect and still feels like a new car when driving it.

I would desperately like a tidyer car now that the dogs have grown up and have stopped assaulting stuff, but I fear that the Lex will go on for ever and I will eventually have to shoot the car to replace it.

 

So why buy a new 96% reliable moderate car any way when you can have a used 100% reliable, easy to replace luxury car instead ?.

Even the excellent Skoda (Halleluya !) will cost £1000 to repair if involved in a small repair. I can replace my whole Lex for that.

All Lexuses (Lexii ?) should come with a smugness control button.

 

Peace.

Can't agree with the c5 tourer being unreliable. My 1.6 hdi munches up motorway miles very economically and has only ever wanted a couple of bulbs!

Always had vw Golf's had a few niggles, but you expect that.  Then i bought a Passat, Never again.  Every problem seem's to cost around 350 pounds.  As for dealers, perhaps we should mark them instead.  My last problem, the car had to go on a vw machine to track down the fault.......100 pounds per hour .

I find the Range Rover Sport at 1st place is total rubbish. Owners when they buy this fabulous car seen to think its invincible and therefore treat it terribly, and then stomp their feet when something goes wrong. Try looking after the car a bit better, and it might last longer? Land Rovers are very reliable.....in the right hands.

it depends how cars are treated and driven,whatever the make or model.I know from over 50 years experience.

Own a Range Rover Sport HSE and had it from new(2010) and never had any problems with it. 13% of owners have had problems? that's nothing.. that's like 1 in 20 people had had problems. not as bad as MSN are making it out to be.
