Honda is the most ‘pothole proof’ manufacturer

Research by Potholes.co.uk has revealed that Honda cars are the most resilient to pothole damage.

Research by Potholes.co.uk has revealed that Honda cars are the most resilient to pothole damage. After Honda, the most ‘pothole-proof’ manufacturers are Toyota and Hyundai, with less than 2% of their cars suffering axle and suspension damage attributable to potholes and other road defects.

Tens of thousands of policies were analysed to reveal the cars most and least susceptible to the nation’s biggest road problem ‘potholes’, which are set to be the worst in a generation this winter. Recent claims for pothole damage have reached as high as £2420. Duncan McClure Fisher of Warranty Direct, said “with last year’s road damage barely dealt with, a repeat of those harsh winter weather conditions could see our highways deteriorate to the worst state they’ve been in for a generation.”

Honda cars are the most resilient but Chrysler, Mercedes Benz and Land Rover models are most likely to be defeated by the UK’s pothole riddle roads with more than ten percent suffering damage each year.
 

This data is gained from insurance claims. What about the 1000's of damaged alloy low-profile wheels that are damaged? My next car will NOT have low profile tyres - I have already paid out for 2 new alloys and 3 tyres in the last year due to potholes!

They're also the worst for customer care - handbrakes that fail, batteries that fail, constant arguments with them and dealers never want to know. Worst car manufacturer there is in our view
