Most Reliable Cars in History
Model years: 1976Present,Heres a wager: Next time youre out for a spin, watch for a nondescript, tan or silver fourdoor. Betcha its a Honda Accord.
Combine reliability and bestselling statusa true virtuous cycleand you get ubiquity. Exactly what it is about Honda that provides such durability is the subject of much debate (and much corporate envy/espionage involving Hondas design and manufacturing processes). But surely some of it has to do with the fact that Honda Motor Company puts its engines and engineering first. Look up Honda Accord in Consumer Reports and you will see a sea of red dots that indicate owners have darn few problems with these cars.
The smaller Honda Civic shares much of the quality but is more likely to be modified by its owners to look flashier and run louder, with maintenance simultaneously neglected. So the Accord gets our nod.
