Highest Ranking for Suzuki by What Car? readers


2023 reliability survey results



Suzuki is celebrating some very good news from the results of the 2023 What Car? Reliability Survey in which over 25,000 readers reported on their car ownership experience between six and up to 20 years old.


Of the 30 car brands measured, Suzuki ranked first place in the league table with a score of 94.7 per cent. Owners were asked if their car had suffered any faults over the last two years, how long the repairs took as well as how much it cost.


The good news continued with two Suzuki models ranking well inside the top 10 most reliable models. Vitara (2015- present) ranked the second most reliable car in the small SUV category with a score of 99.3 per cent with only six per cent of owners reporting any faults with their car. Most importantly, all cars could still be driven, and were repaired on the same day.


The Swift model (2010-2017) followed very close behind at 98.1 per cent. Consumer Editor of What Car? Claire Evans comments: “The Swift might not be the most popular small car, but it’s got a lot going for it, including great driving manners, a reasonable amount of space and a high rating for safety. Like other Suzuki models, it’s also bullet proof, even as it ages. 


Only six per cent of the Swifts in our survey developed a fault, and the battery was the only component affected. All cars could still be driven, half were fixed in less than a day, and no repair bills exceeded £100”. 


Since April 3rd, Suzuki introduced its Service Activated Warranty which is offered once the car or motorcycle reaches the end of its manufacturer warranty period and is booked in for its next scheduled service within the Suzuki Dealer network. This warranty stays in place until the next qualifying service and is then simply renewed again up to a maximum vehicle age of 7 years / 100,000 miles for cars or 70,000 miles for motorcycles - whichever comes first.

J Edgar & Son Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 522976). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows J Edgar & Son Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only. We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
