So while reading this list, be prepared to open a new tab, go on whocanfixmycar.com UK site, and then put your local mechanic’s phone number onto your speed dial list. You own one of these cars, you will most certainly need him/her.
The Fiat 500L is irritatingly unreliable. Essentially all the mod cons which would sway to take the leap and purchase this small SUV - satellite navigation, reverse cameras and sensors and high-tech radio - all have tendency to not work.That being said, the "Fix It Again Tomorrow" jokes surrounding the Fiat brand do seem to be calming down; under Fiat-Chrysler Automotive ownership both build quality and reliability are on the up. So it's not all bad.
The Vauxhall Vectra is yet another hugely popular car that has proven itself to be wholly unreliable over the years. With a 57% average breakdown rate per year, and common suspension issues, the Vectra has been the bane of many a man and woman’s life since its introduction to the market. Although, when you think about it, it's not hard to undestand why the Vectra would break down. Given that it was always a favourite of the sales rep, up and down the M6 at a billion miles per hour, there are undoubtedly a few 'tired' Vectras out there.
Judging by this list, if you own a Renault: you should be worried. The Renault Espace is another car produced by the French car manufacturing company that has been notoriously unreliable over the past decade. The Espaces’ average breakdown rate per year will make you wonder: how did Renault ever believe that this car was road ready? Its average breakdown rate per year is 74%. Yes: 74%. Three-out-of-four Renault Espaces’ on the road are expected to breakdown this year.
