THE Swindon-built Honda Jazz supermini has been named the Most Reliable Used Car in the Auto Express Driver Power survey, with an impressive reliability score of 98 per cent.

Up 1.2 per cent on 2013, the Jazz climbed two places to take the top podium finish in this year's results.

The 2014 Auto Express Driver Power survey asked more than 50,000 car owners to rate their used cars in ten different categories including reliability, performance, road handling and practicality.

The Honda Accord was also placed highly, with a score of 95 per cent, earning fourth place in the build quality category.

Philip Crossman, MD of Honda (UK) said: "This is great news for Honda and a testament to the great cars we manufacture here in Swindon.

“The Jazz has always been a strong performer in terms of reliability and the 2014 Auto Express Driver Power Survey award further reinforces the success of the car.”

The Auto Express Driver Power Survey is Britain's most influential car reliability and satisfaction survey, with more than 50,000 customer and readers taking part in this year's poll. The survey reveals the top 150 cars, new and used, to own in 2014.

The award follows a string of recent successes for the Jazz and for Honda cars on the whole.

Honda Jazz variants took the two top spots in the 2013 Which? Car Survey Supermini Best Buy category. Owners placed three Jazz variants in the Supermini chart top ten, taking first and second with the current models.

As a further boost, Honda cars feature prominently throughout the survey as being amongst the most reliable in their categories, with older and newer generations featuring alongside one another.

usually its the inactive, retired type of person with time on their hands that replies to these surveys, you only have to look at previous winners to establish that the Honda Jazz fits nicely into this sector of the market, if the survey was more transparent showing the various demographic and geographic breakdowns the results may be more plausible. Also the reliability issue depends on how much mileage these cars actually travel, it would not surprise me at all if a lot of these vehicles tested barely did many miles, so to put it into true proportion perhaps a minimum mileage threshold needs to be stated when publishing results. This survey in its present format is of no use, too vague.
