Honda has always had an enviable reputation for its excellent build and reliability, and now it’s been reinforced with Honda topping the Honest John MOT pass rates.

87 per cent of Honda cars passed their first MOT

The review was based on 24.5 million MOT records obtained by Honest John, and revealed that an average of 87 per cent of Honda cars passed their first MOT, which is a staggering 7% higher than the national average.

90% Pass Rate for the Jazz & CR-V

In a further boost the British built Honda Jazz and CR-V topped the model leader board with an impressive 90 per cent passing their MOT’s first time round.

Best used car for under £4,000

If that wasn’t enough, Honest John has also named the Honda Jazz as the best used car for under £4,000.

Best Real MPG performer of 2014

Dan Powell, Managing Editor, Honest John, said;

“The news that Honda scored so well in MOT results should come as no great surprise. Indeed, the revolution in UK manufacturing is rooted in Japanese working practices. Today the UK leads the world in car building, with the British-built Jazz and CR-V paving the way.”

Leon Brannan, Head of Cars, Honda (UK) added;

“Taking top marks in this report and to also see our British built cars, the CR-V and Jazz significantly outperforming the national average is very welcome news and a testament to the workforce down at our manufacturing facility in Swindon.

“It’s results like these, together with the recent 2014 Auto Express Driver Power Survey which named the Jazz as the most reliable used car that do the talking for us, demonstrating and reinforcing our reputation for reliability and excellent build quality. We are incredibly proud of this reputation, it is one we are keen to uphold and keep delivering on long into the future.”
