BMW and Audi car engines amongst the least reliable: UK Research
Warranty Direct has revealed the results of their latest study on engine reliability. According to which, Mercedes Benz engine features amongst the most reliable, while that of Audi and BMW are on the other side.
For starters, German manufacturer’s engines are not all that reliable as made out to be, except for Mercedes Benz. Audi engines are the worst offenders with 1 in every 27 owners reporting engine failure. BMW MINI is also among the list with 1 in every 40 vehicles surfacing with engine issues. Volkswagen is further down the line but also among the list of auto manufacturers whose vehicle engines have failed to make its mark as highly dependable. Warranty Direct has also undertaken a study of cost of engine repairs. A Range Rover Vogue engine recently portrayed some constraints in its functioning which led to insurer’s highest claim, totaling $20,642 while a dealer quoted $23,588 to repair a troubled Range Rover Sport.
Honda on the other hand has emerged as a clear winner with only 1 in 344 owners reporting engine trouble. Toyota followed with 1 in 171 reporting engine trouble while only 1 in 199 Mercedes Benz owners had any difficulty with the engines of their vehicles.
