BMW comes out top in reliability survey

BMW stock

BMW’s biggest selling model range, the 3 Series, has been voted the most reliable lease car in a survey of Britain’s vehicle leasing companies. The poll, which covered the reliability history of nearly 900,000 vehicles in 2008, also revealed that BMW was the most reliable manufacturer overall.

In a win over the Japanese car manufacturers who traditionally dominate in reliability surveys, BMW topped the charts in this year’s annual FN50 reliability survey. The BMW 3 Series was the most highly rated model for reliability, followed by the Toyota Avensis and Honda Accord. Toyota and Honda also rounded out the top three in the most reliable manufacturers survey

The survey compiled by an English car magazine looked at multi-marque leasing companies. 881,000 cars were assessed according to the number of breakdowns per 100 of each type of model on each leasing company’s fleet. Points were then awarded according to the number of times that brands or particular models appeared in the tables supplied by the leasing firms and also for the position in which they were placed.
