We’re thrilled to announce Honda has been named the most reliable make by RepairPal. They’ve landed 3 out of the top 10 models, including:

  • Honda CR-V

  • Honda Civic

  • Honda Accord

So, what makes RepairPal’s Reliability Rating so important and how did the CR-V, Accord, and Civic manage to distinguish themselves?

RepairPal’s Reliability Rating

The RepairPal Reliability Rating isn’t based on conjecture or critical opinion but on undeniable fact. They derive a score based on millions of repair orders on model years between 2010 and 2017, with factors including:

  • Repair Cost

  • Repair Frequency

  • Repair Severity

As they themselves noted, “we are in a unique position with our nationwide network of shops to use actual repair data.”

Honda CR-V
