In the 2018 UK What Car? Reliability Survey, released last week, the Yaris achieved a perfect record with a 100% score, meaning that none of the owners questioned in the survey reported any faults with their vehicles.
Additionally the RAV4 was reported as the most reliable large SUV, and the survey reported that ‘more than a third of owners said their car’s reliability was one of their favourite things about it.’ The RAV4 received a 99.6% reliability score.
The What Car? survey questioned over 18,000 car owners on their experience over the previous 12 months. It covered 159 models from 31 different car brands. The survey monitored cars from one to four years old.
The superb results of the Yaris and the RAV4 meant that Toyota placed third overall when looking at reliability by brand, with an excellent score of 96.8%.
The survey reviewed a number of areas related to reliability including mechanical and electrical components, the engine, fuel system, tyres, bodywork, and technology issues and how long and expensive it was to repair.
Commenting on the fantastic results, Steve Tormey, Chief Executive of Toyota Ireland said;
“Toyota cars are well-known for their reliability and durability and it’s something that our customers greatly value in their cars. These What Car? results further support Toyota’s reputation of producing high quality vehicles and we’re delighted to see that the Yaris achieved a perfect score.
At Toyota, we’re looking to constantly improve our performance, and with our new generation of self-charging hybrids on the way in early 2019, we look forward to seeing even better results in the years to come.”
