Skoda has been named as the most dependable car brand in the UK, and Land Rover the least, in a JD Power Survey.
The Czech brand had the fewest problems experienced by owners in the survey of 13,000 owners of 12-36 month-old vehicles, which ranked car makers according to the number of problems per 100 cars.
Skoda recorded 62 problems per 100 cars having some sort of problem. Suzuki was second, with 79 problems per 100 cars, while Kia was third with 80 issues per 100 cars. The industry average was 113 problems per 100 cars.
Land Rover came last with 197 problems per 100 cars.
The most common problems were issues with technical features such as infotainment systems, including Bluetooth pairing with a mobile phone, while fewer exterior and engine problems were reported compared to last year’s survey, when Skoda also topped the list.
Owners who experienced problems were less likely to say they would buy from the same brand again.
