Meet UK’s Nightmare Car!

This is the Monster Mk1, UK’s worst car dreamed up based on the worst profiles across the categories that make up Reliability Index, a unique tool that measures car reliability by considering average cost of repair, frequency of failure, age and mileage, Warranty Direct reckons its ghastly creation is the stuff of nightmares. The car is a collection of the worst and costs an average of £2,050 to fix each year!

Overall, the Monster Mk1 claims a Reliability Index figure of over 500 – more than five times that of the average car. Reviwing the list of cars contributing parts to this, it’s shocking to realize even cars like BMW M3 or Audi A8 have such faults.

Warranty Direct managing director, Duncan McClure Fisher, said: “The Monster Mk1 represents the worst-performing vehicles in every sector, from suspension to electrics, on our roads today. “The wide range of cars included in our special blend highlights how mostly reliable cars can be dragged down by one problem part.
