Tiny Kia tops customer reliability survey



The Kia Picanto has emerged victorious in a survey judging the reliability of the cars on the UK's roads, with the British-built Land Rover Discovery 3 sat at the bottom of the pile.

The survey, run by consumer magazine Which? Car saw owners award the Korean supermini 98.1 percent for reliability as it beat the Mazda 3 into second place with 97.6 percent. The Daihatsu Sirion and the Honda Insight came in joint third with 97 percent.
The Discovery scored a poor-by-comparison 67.8 percent, with the BMW 3 Series and the Hyundai Santa Fe making up the rest of the bottom three.



Kia is confident in its own reliability – the Korean company is the only one to offer a seven year warranty.

There was good news for Toyota too - the company that has been plagued by negative headlines for most of the year after a string of recalls has two models in the top 10. Fellow Japanese companies Mazda and Honda also get two cars featured in the top list.
