Although Honda and Toyota may not employ direct injection and turbocharging technologies as widely as their German counterparts, they can at least claim that their engines are more reliable.

According to a report released by UK-based Warranty Direct, a provider of direct consumer car warranties, Hondas engine failure rate is the lowest at 0.29%. Toyota and Mercedes took second and third spot respectively with a failure rate of 0.58% and 0.84%.

Mercedes' fellow country mates - Audi, BMW and Volkswagen fared badly in the report. Out of the 36 car makers listed, all three brands came in in the bottom 10 position. BMW came in seventh from bottom while Volkswagen took up the ninth position from the bottom. Audi engines have the second highest failure rate at 3.71%. The crown of engine unreliability goes to MG Rover with a failure rate of 7.88%.

The Germans have displaced the Japanese from top positions in Singapore's sales chart in recent years. If the above report is a good indication, the towing business here is set to flourish.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
