Buying a second-hand car can be a slight cause for concern, since you can never be entirely sure of the history of the vehicle in the same way that you would if you were buying a brand-new car, the wheels of which have never touched the road.
That’s why it’s so essential that you do your research before parting with any cash and setting off into the sunset – and to help you in this endeavour, consumer champion What Car? has just revealed the most and least reliable used cars out there at the moment, with the Toyota Yaris coming top of the list in terms of reliability.
The model received a 99.1 per cent reliability rating, while just nine per cent of owners reporting faults to the watchdog. The Lexus CT came in second place and the Audi Q3 in third, news that might well help you decide on your next car purchase if you have plans to replace your current vehicle in the near future.
Editor of What Car? Steve Huntingford said: “Reliability is often at the forefront of any vehicle purchase. With nearly eight million used vehicles sold last year*, there is huge scope for things to go wrong. By shining a light on the reliability of various makes and models, we hope to help buyers make the right decision when choosing their next used purchase.”
Taking advantage of a car scrappage scheme could be a good idea if you do want a new used vehicle. The Car Wow website has a list of 2019 scrappage scheme deals, which could prove useful.
