Based on data gathered from millions of pounds worth of claims handled by Warranty Direct every year, the Reliability Index brings you the most comprehensive overview of cars on the road today.
Analysis shows that one in four cars suffer some degree of mechanical failure during years 4 and 5 of ownership - ironically just as the manufacturers UK standard warranty expires. Now you can see the information the manufacturers don't want you to see.
As a transparent and free data source for the car buyer, the Index provides you with valuable information on the sort of costs you can expect with your car, how frequently it might go wrong and which parts you should expect to go wrong.
The integrity of the Reliability Index is based on the data available to Warranty Direct. That is why some makes and models have been purposely ommitted. If we don't carry enough policies and claims to provide a fair reflection of that models place in the UK car market today, it will only act to skew the overall picture if included in the Index. However, as the site is automatically linked to claims processed by Warranty Direct, the data is updated daily and the small number of omissions will only get smaller.
Warranty Direct offers extended warranty protection on most makes of cars that are under 10 years old and 100,000 miles on the clock.
