Hyundai Getz 100%

Hyundai Getz 100%

Hyundai is rated top class in yet another widely-respected world survey, just out.

This year's Which? reliability report has classed Hyundai vehicles as Excellent, for the second year running. And the Getz has been found 100% reliable.

The UK-based consumer products and services ratings organisation compiled 34,277 questionnaires, which were completed by randomly chosen Which? readers who own a car of up to eight years old.

Questions were based around the customers' experiences over the past twelve months and concentrated on the three main aspects of reliability: breakdowns, faults and niggles.

Hyundai was rated Excellent overall by Which? Readers, joined by the likes of Honda and Toyota's prestige brand Lexus.

Among others rated merely Good are Ford and Subaru. Meanwhile Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Volvo are rated Average and in the Poor category fall Audi, BMW, VW and LandRover, among others.

Another section of the survey concentrated on new car breakdowns and analysed the reliability of vehicles up to two years old and how they have performed in the past twelve months.

Results showed that 32% of new car owners can expect a fault in the first two years of ownership and 6% can expect to endure a breakdown - but not if you own a Hyundai Getz.

Hyundai's supermini has achieving 100% reliability, the only micro to achieve a perfect rating.

"The high scores achieved by Hyundai vehicles right across the range demonstrate Hyundai Motor Co's commitment to producing cars of the highest quality and specification," commented the General Manager of Hyundai Automotive New Zealand, Philip Eustace.

"We know the Getz is one of the very best cars in its class and exceptional results such as these really demonstrate that.

"Not only does Getz provide excellent value for money, but customers also have the reassurance of knowing it is one of the most reliable cars on the road."

Full details of the survey will be published in September's issue of Which? Magazine.

Hyundai is noted as a mass-market leader in reliability and quality as well as value, with a particular focus on safety initiatives. The Hyundai group is now the seventh largest car manufacturer in the world and aims for the top five by the end of the decade.
