UK Votes BMW Range Most Reliable in the UK

Taking a reliability test has never been so easy. In the UK, a survey undertaken by Fleet News meant researching into 900,000 cars by asking the help of 50 leasing companies from the country that operated those cars.

Most of the vehicles were company cars, so they cover a lot of mileage and are in constant use under all conditions. Not surprisingly, it turned out that, for the second year in the row, BMW’s Group model range proved to be the most reliable cars in Britain.

Stephen Briers, Editor of Fleet News, said: “This is one of the largest vehicle reliability surveys of its kind and it reviews a market where cars are subjected to some of the most testing conditions they will ever face on the road. As a result, being listed anywhere in this table is a major achievement. However, to be named most reliable is a real testament to the hard work and commitment from a manufacturer to produce cars that British businesses can rely on every day.

Steve Chater, BMW Group Corporate Operations Manager, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to win this award because the FN50 Reliability Survey is based on cold, hard facts, not opinion or interpretation. Leasing companies’ businesses rely on having extremely accurate information on the operational performance of the cars they lease, so when they say you are the most reliable, it is definitive. Having won a number of environmental awards in the past year for EfficientDynamics, it is gratifying to see that we are also leaders in another vital area of the ownership experience.
