The company car industry's leading news paper Fleet News UK conducted a reliability survey, the biggest in the country. Honda claimed three of the top five most reliable cars in the UK, the Jazz and Accord listed third and fourth place.

The 50 largest fleet companies completed the survey and rated their most reliable cars and manufacturers.

“This survey is the largest of its kind in the country and is based on feedback from those who really know about the reliability of vehicles – people who run hundreds of thousands of vehicles over many hundreds of thousands of miles," said Fleet News Editor Stephen Briers.

Almost one third of all Hondas sold are Civics with over 19 million units sold. The Civic first came to Australia in 1973 and has sold more than 350,000 since then.
