Unreliable Vehicles (The Sun) Breakdown Recovery
Updated: Jan 10, 2020
Land Rover came in second on the list of unreliable motors, trumped only by Alfa Romeo, in a recent investigation by MotorEasy.
The luxury off-roader manufacturer received an overall reliability score of just 2.5/5 based on repair incidence rates and service costs - the worst of any brand.
The motoring association analysed 47,000 insurance and warranty policies over a period of two and half years, involving 33 manufacturers, to asses the number of repairs requested, as well as the cost of those fixes.
Almost a third of Land Rover owners (32 per cent) experienced a fault each year, putting the British firm on a par with Chevrolet in the breakdown stakes.
Breakdown Recovery Costs always vary on the type of vehicle it is i.e size etc...
And average Land Rover repair costs were only cheaper than those incurred by Porsche and Lexus owners.
Alfa Romeo was the brand most likely to break down, with 43 out of every 100 cars developing a fault each year, at an average cost of £215 to fix.
On the other end of the scale, Subaru took top spot as the most reliable brand, with just three in every 100 vehicles needing a claim-worthy repair in an average 12-month period.
Cars from the Japanese manufacturer were also only marginally more expensive to fix than those from Nissan, with the average repair cost weighing-in at £420.
