Celebrations at Pebley Beach as Suzuki is named Most Reliable Brand

Staff at Swindon's Suzuki dealer Pebley Beach are celebrating after the brand was named the most reliable in the UK.

In the What Car? magazine annual vehicle reliability survey, Suzuki came top with an overall reliability score of 97.7 percent across its range – ahead of Lexus and Toyota. 

Meanwhile the Suzuki SX4 S-Cross jointly claimed the top spot in the car models category with the Toyota Yaris – both garnered a fault-free perfect score of 100 percent.

What Car? revealed ratings for 159 models spanning 31 brands based on data from more than 18,000 car owners in the 2018 Reliability Survey.

Steve Huntingford, editor of What Car?, said: “Reliability is a huge consideration for any prospective car buyer, as your car is likely to be your second biggest monthly expense after mortgage or rent payments. 

"You want your car to last and you don’t want to have to fork out huge amounts to fix faults and keep it running."

Commenting on the perfect score of the S-Cross, he said: "Not a single S-Cross caused its owner any trouble, making this not only one of our favourite budget small SUV’s but also the class’s most reliable car. 

"Many owners told us the thing they like best about their S-Cross is its durability.”

Dominic Threfall, managing director of Pebley Beach, said: "The S-Cross was a hit with our customers from its launch in 2006, and its relaunch as a mini SUV – the SX4 S-Cross – in 2013 has attracted even more fans.

"We knew the model was reliable, but its 100-percent rating delighted us."

Financial Disclosure

Pebley Beach Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
