A recent study looked at the most reliable and least reliable car manufacturers, and Peugeot came out on top. Sliding into the number one spot, the French brand was named the most reliable car brand of all, beating all other manufacturers to the top. Here’s why Peugeot was announced as the most reliable car brand today.


The Vehicle Dependency Study was carried out by J.D. Power, a global marketing information services company that provides consumer reviews and ratings from real car owners. The survey, which is now in its fifth year, used data from 11,000 car owners and ranked the brands based on data from cars registered between November 2015 and January 2018. There were 177 faults considered across eight different categories, including driving experience, navigation and audio.

The J.D. Power study put vehicles through intense testing, including highly detailed stress tests that can reveal numerous faults in a single car. It also looked at how many problems car drivers reported with their respective vehicles. It tested a total of twenty three global automotive brands, including Skoda, Hyundai and BMW, which was revealed to be the least reliable car brand of all.


According to the research, Peugeot came out on top as the most reliable car brand available. The study found that Peugeot owners only found seventy problems in every one hundred cars. That may sound like a lot, but the study counted every single problem reported. That effectively means that Peueot owners report, on average, less than one problem per vehicle. It’s an impressive claim, especially when you consider that it means 23% of all Peugeot cars reported zero faults. And that means almost a quarter of all Peugeot cars are, in effect, completely faultless.

Throughout the study, it was found that the industry average stood at 119 faults per 100 cars. That’s, on average, more than one fault per vehicle, with some manufacturers reporting as many as 181 faults per car. These numbers go to prove just how reliable Peugeot cars truly are. With the average number of faults falling at almost half the average across the UK - and the fact that there is less than one fault per vehicle - it’s easy to see how Peugeot scooped the number one spot in the survey.

Peugeot didn’t just come out on top in the study - it was miles ahead of its competitors. Skoda took the second place spot, beaten only by Peugeot. With 88 faults found for every 100 Skoda cars tested, it was still far behind Peugeot’s 77 faults, meaning no other manufacturer came anywhere near close to Peugeot in reliability.

The result of this study just goes to show what we already knew: that Peugeot cars are incredibly reliable. It’s one of the reasons why Peugeot remains one of the best-selling motor brands in the UK and, combined with the brand’s forward-thinking and fun approach, make it something that won’t be changing anytime soon.
