The survey gave the Jazz a reliability rating of 96 per cent, with owners confirming the car rarely lets them down, cementing the hatchback's reputation as the number one reliable car.
Richard Headland, editor, Which? Car, said:
"Congratulations to Honda, which has topped the reliability table in most mainstream categories. Honda is setting the benchmark in car reliability and it's up to other manufacturers to raise their standards to match. Several Far Eastern car makers are hot on its heels, but European manufacturers still have some catching up to do."
Other Honda's to top the list in their respective categories were the Honda Accord Euro (large) with 94 per cent, Honda FR-V (people mover) with 91 per cent, and the previous generation Honda CR-V (off-road) with 94 per cent and Honda Civic (medium) with 94 per cent.
These highly commendable performances across the range has significantly contributed to Honda's position on top of the ladder, placing first for most reliable manufacturer with an overall rating of 86 per cent.
