Honda Jazz Awarded WhatCar? ‘Most Reliable Small Car 2017’ Title

The Honda Jazz has been named ‘Most Reliable Small Car’ in WhatCar? Magazine’s 2017 Reliability Survey with the owners reporting no faults.

The WhatCar? Magazine Reliability Survey asked 14,208 car owners if their cars had suffered any faults in the last 12 months. These were inclusive of 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 repair were also recorded to weigh the severity of the fault and arrive at a valid reliability rating.

The Honda Civic hatchback and Tourer also scored highly in the ‘Family Car’ category, achieving an impressive 94.5% reliability rating. Owners of older cars ranging in 4-10 years since production were also asked to complete the survey, resulting in the Honda Civic diesel scoring 100% reliability with no owners reporting faults.

WhatCar? Magazine Editor – Steve Huntingford, 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.” “Honda also scored well across the rest of its range, with customers telling us they’re extremely happy with their cars.” “At WhatCar? we look forward to highlighting these results to our readers and monitoring on-going progress of the brand in our annual survey.”

Phil Webb at Honda UK, reported: “This is a fantastic result for the Jazz and only goes to further demonstrate the build quality that Honda is famed for.” “To then also further score highly with the Civic hatchback and Tourer simply reaffirms Honda as one of the most trusted and reliable brands.”
