Car loans customers advised: 'buy Japanese'

A new survey has advised new car finance customers on the best used cars available on the market.

A new survey has advised new car finance customers on the best used cars available on the market.

The study, conducted by What Car? magazine, looked at a number of older models that had exceeded their manufacturer's warranty and tested their reliability, according to the Scotsman.

The newspaper reports that Japanese models were found to be the most reliable with the Toyota Corolla coming out on top, which could be of interest to those who may have recently acquired approved car finance.

However, it was also revealed that British cars had not fared as well with Land Rover and Jaguar both having entries in the ten least reliable.

Commenting on the results, Duncan McClure-Fisher of Warranty Direct, said: "The data proves that expensive doesn't necessarily mean reliable.

"The more mechanically and electronically complicated a vehicle, especially if it's of European origin, the more likely you are to suffer problems."

This week the Economist reported that the joint sale of Jaguar and Land Rover, by their current owners Ford, would soon be finalised with a number of interested parties.
