Highest ranking for Suzuki by What Car? Readers 

As the renowned small car experts, Suzuki is celebrating some very good news from the results of the latest annual What Car? Reliability Survey in which 21,732 readers reported on their ownership experience on cars up to five years old. 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.

Of the 32 car brands measured and across 178 different models, the Swift ranked first in the small car league table with a score of 99.5 per cent. Just four per cent of Swift owners reported any issues with their cars, all remedial work was completed within a day and importantly, carried out free of charge. One owner commented; “My Swift has been so reliable; I’ll get another one in a few years.”

Moving to the small SUV category, Ignis also ranked first as the most dependable amongst its competitors with another very high score of 99.4 per cent. Vitara also joined Ignis in the top 10 and not far behind at 96.7 per cent.

As a brand overall, Suzuki ranked in the top four of the 32 manufacturers measured with a score of 96.9 per cent.

Claire Evans, Consumer Editor of What Car? comments: “If you’re after an affordable and dependable small hatchback or SUV, the Suzuki Swift and Ignis are great options. Owners of both models told us they suffered very few faults and those that did occur were dealt with quickly for free”.

In addition to strong reliability and low cost of ownership from the Suzuki range, further peace of mind is ensured with Service Activated Warranty which is offered once the car reaches the end of its three year / 60,000 miles manufacturer warranty period and booked in for its next scheduled service within the Suzuki Dealer network.

Launched in April last year, this warranty stays in place until the next qualifying service and is then simply renewed again up to a maximum vehicle age of seven years / 100,000 miles - whichever comes first.

Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited are Appointed Representatives of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 571076). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Breeze Motor Company Ltd, Breeze (Southampton) Ltd and Breeze Motorcycles Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of finance providers 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.
