Bedford, Texas – Vehicles from Honda, Ford and Volkswagen had the lowest number of repairs in 2009, according to data from U.S. aftermarket warranty company Warrantech.
The company analyzed its paid claims records on various vehicles driven by its customers during the past year to determine the vehicles that consistently required the fewest number of repairs.
Among Asian vehicles, the top performers were the Honda Pilot, Civic and CR-V; among domestic vehicles, the Ford Ranger, F-150 and Escape; and among European vehicles, the Volkswagen Beetle, Jetta and Passat.
“Given the high standards for quality control in the automotive industry, picking a particular model in any category is hard, especially considering the number of vehicles on the road today,” said Jeanine Folz, senior vice-president of Warrantech. “However, some manufacturers have produced a number of vehicles that consistently require fewer repairs. These vehicles and their manufacturers deserve recognition.”
