NB: Minimum same size of 100 for each model included in the index. Only cars outside of their manufacturer’s warranty period (usually 3 years) and less than 10 years old are included. Average repair costs were collated over a period between 2021 and 2022.

Lawrence Whittaker, CEO of Warrantywise said:

“The Reliability Index is extremely revealing of how luxury cars, which may seem like they would be reliable because of the costly price tags, aren’t always so. The opinion that they should be very reliable, for the price that customers pay for them, is quite a popular one, and this evaluation of our data is helpful for us to guide customers the right way when wanting to make a large purchase on a luxury car, like a Porsche.

“Our sole purpose here at Warrantywise is to ensure that no matter what car you buy, it’s covered and taken care of. Since the rise in automotive parts cost and car maintenance labour since last year (2021) and continued pressures on the rising cost of living, it’s even more important to protect your investment and learn about which cars to buy used, too. Through the Reliability Index, we are able to steer customers the right way when it comes to investing in a car. However, no matter what car it is – and how reliable it is – we can support it.”
