Did you know that as well as finding out the overall reliability of a car, the RI also offers information on which parts of a car fail most often? Air conditioning, axle & suspension, braking system, cooling and heating, electrical components, the engine, fuel system and transmission are all studied.

The annual London to Brighton Veteran Can Run in pictures! Which model do you think would have come out top on the Reliability Index?!
On November 14, 1896, pioneer motorists celebrated the Light Locomotives on the Highway Act, which raised the speed limit from 4mph to 14mph, by driving the 60 miles from London to Brighton. It also decreed that cars no longer had to be preceeded by a man carrying a red warning flag. The commemoration is an annual event on the first Sunday of November, with between 400 and 500 cars constructed before 1905 taking part

The definitive source of "real world" car ownership costs.
Introduction
How reliable is your car or the car you're about to buy?

And how do you determine what is or isn't a reliable car anyway? When you're considering the purchase of a car, there are only a handful of factors that really matter - reliability is one of them. Having a car that won't let you down is important to almost every motorist, and two things affect your view of reliability.

How often it needs repairing, and how much it will cost you to put right. A car could break down five times, but only cost you £50 each time to fix, or it could break down once and set you back £1,000. That's why the Reliability Index figure combines several elements - cost, inconvenience and rate of failure - making it a 'real world' picture of car ownership.
