Warranty Direct even logs the average time a car is off the road for repairs, with Chevrolet coming in at 1.41 days – second-placed Suzuki notches up 1.67 days.

Warranty Direct’s Duncan McClure-Fisher comments: “Honda has held the top spot in our Index for many months, so for Chevrolet to knock them off their perch is a major coup. We don’t hold as many policies on Chevrolets as Hondas, but the data we have clearly shows that Chevrolets are trustworthy vehicles.”

The latest Warranty Direct Reliability Index top 10 of manufacturers:

  1. Chevrolet
  2. Honda
