No one wants to pay lots of money on frequent car repairs, and no one wants to get stuck in the middle of nowhere with a broken vehicle. Reliability is an important thing that everyone should look for when purchasing a car in Australia to avoid extra costs and inconvenience.
In this survey, respondents who have bought a specific brand of cars and have used it in the last 4 years were selected.
Mazda clearly dominates the most reliable car brand in Australia. Common problems reported according to CHOICE were related to in-car technology, faulty batteries, electrical components, and car interiors.
CHOICE reported that 73% of new car owners in the past 5 years were covered by warranty, and majority of them had their issues solved. However, there are also a significant number of car owners who didn’t get any help at all, with women more likely to be denied a resolution to their problem.
Here are some of the things that you should consider when buying a new car, such as deciding on what type of financing you’d like to use (cash, car loan, or lease), taking the vehicle for more than one test-drive, and conducting lots of research before making the huge purchase.
