MOST RELIABLE SUV?It seems that the Honda CR-V is the most reliable 4×4/SUV on the market. So claims the annual Which? Car Survey, which has named the Honda CR-V 2.2 i-DTEC the UK’s most reliable 4×4/SUV up to three-years old. The report actually says the Honda has zero reported breakdowns, average annual repair costs of just £10 and an overall reliability score of 98.5 per cent over a 12 month period. The research was based on an impressive 49,000 owners, reporting on some 58,000 vehicles, so that’s a fair sample. To celebrate this success, Honda has a summer campaign where customers can pick up a Honda CR-V 2.2 i-DTEC Black or White Edition for a monthly payment of just £349, with a £500 deposit contribution. Additionally with the option of a comprehensive care package offering five year’s warranty, servicing and roadside assistance for a one-off payment of £555, it is claimed that owners can assume their running costs are covered for the next five years, and that they stand to make potential savings of up to £1290.
