If you can’t face the bus, train or tube, or none of them go where you need to be when you commute, do the shopping or head out for the evening, what’s the ideal car for buzzing around the town? Well, you don’t want anything too big or too expensive, and it needs to be able to cope with busy city streets as well as faster open roads. It should also be reliable – but if it does suffer a mechanical ailment, the repair bill shouldn’t break the bank. So it’s important to choose your make and model wisely. It’s worth a gander at the list that Warranty Direct has compiled of the top 10 most reliable city cars. The company analysed 50,000 live policies, measuring overall reliability by combining rate of failure, average mileage, age and repair cost.
