The Ford Fiesta is the most reliable used car, according to Warrantywise’s latest Reliability Index rating.

Earlier this year, Warrantywise revealed that the Ford Fiesta was the most popular vehicle it had on cover.

Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of Warrantywise, said: “It’s great to see not only the used car market at a five-year high, but also the Ford Fiesta to top yet another chart.

“It has [the Ford Fiesta] always been a favourite among used car buyers, and recent insight only reinforces its status as a trusted option when looking for a used car.”

The Reliability Index underscores the Ford Fiesta’s reputation for durability, with an overall score of 70/100. The Ford Fiesta has a low average repair cost (£925) and an older average age at the time of requested repairs (eight years).

The vehicle offers customers peace of mind in a time where there are significant economic challenges and a surge in used car sales.

“The latest figures from the SMMT [of Q1 2024 most popular used cars sold] underscore the unique challenges we face today. We’re still navigating the aftermath of the pandemic and grappling with an economic downturn that sees costs escalating at every turn.

“This has led to a surge in demand for used cars as consumers opt for more budget-friendly options over purchasing new vehicles. Cars like the beloved Ford Fiesta.”

The Vauxhall Corsa was in second place for reliability, followed by the Ford Focus, VW Golf, MINI, Vauxhall Astra, BMW 3 Series, VW Polo, Nissan Qashqai and the Audi A3.
