Survey reveals reliable engines

Peugeot 208 tops Breaker Link study

Published:  23 March, 2015

New and used car parts finder Breaker Link has analysed enquiries they have received to calculate the vehicles with the most reliable engines.

The company used its data from 2013 on second-hand engines required and combined the data with the number of each make and model on the road. While the study is not comprehensive and based only on its own data, it does paint a picture of the reliability of today's engines.

The company acknowledges that this was not a scientific survey and that it assumes the ratio of drivers seeking replacement engines online is constant across all makes and models and it is also acknowledged that in some instances it would be cheaper to replace the whole vehicle. The company also expressed the view that only a fraction of a percentage of all cars would need a replacement engine.
