Dacia has been voted the fourth most reliable car brand out of 34 manufacturers in the 2016 Which? Car Survey.
Receiving 90% satisfaction score from customers, the non-nonsense car company was placed above many premium and luxury brands.
Within the range the Dacia Duster – the best value SUV on the market – was voted third Best Compact SUV by Which? Readers for ownership satisfaction. The UK’s most affordable car – the Dacia Sandero, received a four-star reliability rating from owners, while the Dacia Logan MCV – offering the more space for owners’ money than any other car brand – also received a four star reliability rating.
Nic Shaw, Cars Editor, Which?, said: “Our survey, the biggest of its kind in the UK, reveals that spending more on a car is no guarantee of reliability, and sometimes quite the opposite. The ultra-affordable Dacia Sandero shows that a reliable runaround need not break the bank and Dacia finishing fourth overall in our manufacturer reliability league table is a strong achievement for a relatively new car brand.”
On receiving the award, Louise O’Sullivan, Head of Dacia UK commented: “We’re delighted that the Which? Car Survey 2016 is another endorsement from Dacia owners of how satisfied they are with their cars. Dacia is continuing to go from strength to strength in the UK with the range matching value for money with quality, reliability and owner satisfaction.”
The annual Which? Car Survey in 2016, measures reliability and customer satisfaction based on feedback from more than 59,000 UK car owners based on their experience in the last year. As well as breakdowns, it considers repair costs, the time a car is off the road for repair and the most common fault types for each model.
Dacia has won a number of awards in the UK since launching just over three years ago including What Car?’s ‘Best Small Car under £12,000’ for four consecutive years for the Sandero. The Auto Express Driver Power has also awarded the brand placing Dacia as its top five best manufacturers for three years running.
Over four million Dacia’s have been sold since Groupe Renault reintroduced the brand in 2004.
