Japanese brands represent the most reliable cars sold in the UK, according to the latest Warranty Direct and What Car? survey.
For the 5th year running Honda tops the yearly car reliability study, with just 7% needing repairs in a 12 month period.
Lexus, which has just launched an engine recall in the UK, came 4th and Toyota, which was hit by a major recall in February, came 5th.
The only European brands in the top 10 were Skoda and Mini, with Kia being the highest placed non-Japanese Asian carmaker.
The research comes from Warranty Direct’s 50,000 live policies on cars aged three to 10-years old.
Land Rover proved to be the least reliable manufacturer out of the 32 included in the study, with 53% of cars suffering a fault, while Alfa Romeo and Renault are also among the most likely to break down.
