Re: What is it with What Car?

We often consider reliability by looking at how many are still around as they get old. A better measure, but more difficult to quantify, is how many left compared with how many sold. That will often tell a different story.

But owners will skew the results.
New VWs, even the little ones are more likely to be cherished and cared for whereas Ford and Fiat less so. The only reason there are a lot of old Fords, is that there were a huge number new. As they get older, only the more 'special' models survive.
