The UK’s ten least reliable cars
More reasons, if they were needed, to avoid owning a Smart ForTwo…

Your car is a thing of wonder, a shiny automaton poised to ferry you from one place to the next. Until it breaks down. Then it becomes a horrid lawn ornament, cash haemorrhage, logistical puzzle, and the universe darkens into a place of doubt and schism.
OK, so maybe not that bad. But any evidence that the big expensive box next to your house can stop working at its own whim and fancy will give you an extreme disinclination to boogie.
Which is why JD Power conducts a driver satisfaction survey to see how everyone's getting on with their chosen steed. Reliability, happiness with the dealer reps, and the general ownership experience are measured so you - yes, you with your mouth open - can better inform your next purchase. Sort of like the @topgeargarage, but with fewer burnouts.
So, click on to see this year's lemons. And don't forget to head back to TopGear.com tomorrow, where we'll be announcing the What Car?/JD Power champions...
