Citroen right after Toyota, how they did it, beats me

OK maybe the Citros don't break down on the road that often, but they tend to have a minor annoyance once every 2 weeks, I must know I've had several... I guess it's done with some statistical trickery. This way every manufacturer will soon be able to present the result he had paid for to his unsuspecting victims... err... customers

One minor problem this survey only includes up to Civic 01 onwards. The survey is run by Warranty Direct and all current (06 onwards) Civics (except the minority that have over 90,000 miles) are still in the hands of the Manufacturer, not external Warranty companies.

True, the latest Civic is not covered. However Honda is at least 6 times more reliable than porsche and nearly 4 times more reliable than Audi

I dont think I will ever consider a Porsche Boxter - have a look at its reliability rating !!

Great news for those who've had petrol filler cap problems, squeaks, rattles, hand brake failure, suspension creak, scratched fascia, worn seats, broken fog lights, poor paint, dangerous i-Shift delay...

This survey doesn't include 8th generation civic. I think that this generation will have worst reliability ranks than the previous generation but it will still be better than every other european car.
The main problem is the comfort coming out from the suspension. If they solve this then we will be on top again.

In Greece we buy their small SUV Terios. It's a fair deal due to its 1.5lt engine and it's off road abilities. Believe me...Greece is a country that these abilities are very useful...

My mate runs a Diahatsu van, about the same size as a Transit.

It's been smashed into, by other road users on two occasions and on both the insurance co wrote it off.

My mate bought the wreck and repaired it himself on both occasions.

It's now done over 150,000 and all he has had to add have been new tyres and some new shoes.

......and you're running them down!

No, the sticker that size on the back would stop your rear view altogether!

I've spent even more on buying my Space Ship and I'm still real happy!

Just been to that site.

Not one complaint about a Civic there at all!

......and no one moaning about the i-Shift either!
