The most reliable cars in the US and the UK


Porsche topped this year’s J.D. Power and Associates customer satisfaction survey, with Jaguar and BMW coming in second and third.

The influential annual survey asks consumers to rate the performance, execution and layout of their new car or truck after three months of ownership.

However, Ford Motor Co. posted the highest scores of any Detroit manufacturer, with its Ford brand outperforming Toyota and Honda.  The outstanding model for FoMoCo was the Fiesta, the same one as built here on the Eastern Seaboard.

In the UK, it was Honda all the way, having been rated the UK’s most reliable manufacturer in the latest What Car? and Warranty Direct reliability study for an unprecedented sixth year in a row.  The 2011 survey result reinforces Honda’s reputation for building rock-solid, dependable cars you can trust.

In the 2011 UK JD Power Vehicle Ownership Satisfaction Study saw Honda retain the number two spot in the overall league table – and the highest-placed volume manufacturer.
