Honda Jazz at the Awards Ceremony

Honda has triumphed at the inaugural Workshop Magazine awards, picking up Car of the Year with the Jazz and the coveted Manufacturer of the Year.

Readers voting for the Jazz praised the car's logical design which makes it simple to repair. It was also noted that parts are readily available from Honda. Similarly, the manufacturer of the year was voted for by readers and Honda was commended for its efficiency and strong relationships with workshops.

Aimed at garage owners, managers and automotive technicians, Workshop magazine held its first awards last night at the Brewery in London celebrating and recognising the best and brightest in the industry.

Trident Dealer Principal and Commercial Director, Steve Henderson, says:

Whilst Honda's reliability is well known, what perhaps is less well known is what the motor industry itself thinks of Honda. These awards demonstrate that even within the motor trade Honda's reliability and commitment to its product is legendary.

We would like to offer our congratulations to Honda for yet another well deserved award.

The Honda Jazz has been named Most Reliable Small Car in What Car? magazine’s 2017 Reliability Survey, with the owners of the popular supermini reporting no faults with their car.

The survey - published in the December issue of Britain’s leading consumer automotive magazine - asked owners of 14,208 cars to ask if their cars had suffered any faults in the last 12 months.

These were classified into 14 groups: battery, bodywork, brakes, engine electrics, exhaust, exterior lights, fuel system, gearbox/clutch, interior trim, non-engine electrics, steering, suspension and other. The cost and length of the repair were also used to weight the severity of the fault and create a reliability rating.

The magazine reports:

Not one Honda Jazz owner who completed the survey reported any faults with their car, giving the little Japanese hatchback a perfect reliability score.

The European Organisation of Consumers and Users (OCU) has carried out a survey with more than 30,000 European drivers asking about the reliability of their cars. According to this survey Honda is the most reliable brand, with users choosing the Honda Jazz as the most reliable vehicle.

The OCU received more than 70,000 evaluations from drivers, to determine the common malfunctions on each car. These malfunctions were then weighted by severity. Based on these results Honda was the most reliable brand.

According to the survey malfunctions are surprisingly common, with 16% of drivers being left stranded and Alfa Romeo, Dodge and Ssangyong were the most likely to have suffered a breakdown.

Honda Motor Europe's Senior Vice President, Philip Ross, says:

Reliability and quality are synonymous with the Honda brand. It is important for Honda to ensure that customers can experience the joy of owning a Honda vehicle and enjoy driving then with the peace of mind that the cars are among the least likely to experience breakdowns.

The highest rated vehicle was the Honda Jazz 1.2 (last time it was the Honda Jazz 1.4!).

The most reliable cars sold in the UK are made by Japanese brands, according to the latest Warranty Direct and What Car? survey.

For the fifth year Honda topped the annual car reliability study, with just 7 per cent requiring repairs in a 12 month period.

The research comes from Warranty Direct's 50,000 live policies on cars aged three to 10-years old. Warranty Direct carried out exhaustive research to reveal the nature of the repairs carried out on every model - from faults with the electrics, brakes and suspension to problems with the engine, transmission, or heating and cooling systems.

It was found that no Honda in the survey suffered from brake, engine or cooling system faults. Honda had the second lowest average repair bill and a low average repair time.

In addition to receiving a 5 star reliability rating, the final verdict was that Honda owners could sleep easily at night.

Let's face it, who doesn't want a good nights sleep?
