UK’s Worst Performing Car Is A Frankenstein Mashup
Auto News
Car warranty providers, the aptly named Warranty Direct, have named and shamed the least reliable cars in the UK by creating their very own Frankenstein (Photoshoped) worst-performing car in the form of a mashup. The automotive specialist analysed its 50,000 policies by combining various categories via its measuring tool the Reliability Index. The least or rather worst/most unreliable cars were extracted into this Photoshop monster, it consists of the suspension from the Audi RS6, the V10 engine from BMW’s M5 and the gearbox of a Jeep Cherokee. The main offenders appear to be European, the mashup also includes the shoddy electrics of a Mercedes R Class, the braking system of the Fiat Multipla, Air conditioning from the Seat Alhambra and the steering from the Chrysler 300C. This reliability nightmare has a name, its called the Horrific 40RR0R, its a visual reliability score showing the worst automotive offenders in each of Warranty Direct’s mechanical category. For example almost two fifths of Audi RS6s’ require a repair to the axle and suspension each year, 1 in every 10 Mercedes R Class sold will suffer from electrical faults. The Horrfic 40RR0R mashup is listed below:
Make and Model Car part Range
BMW M5 Engine (04 – 11)
Audi RS6 Axle and Suspension (02 – 11)
Jeep Grand Cherokee Gearbox (06 – )
Mercedes-Benz R-Class Electrics (04 – )
Fiat Multipla Braking system (99 – 05)
SEAT Alhambra Air-conditioning (96 – )
