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:
