This is just a quick update from the daily Slovak newspaper SME which (thanks to the German paper Auto Bild) compiled a list of the most reliable cars in our European neighbour, Germany.
As you can see from the chart above, the Suzuki Grand Vitara from around 2007 to 2008 is proving to be the fifth most reliable car they could find. This is an excellent testament to Suzuki’s design quality.
The story is available to read here (though it’s all in Slovak), and claims that the figures were collected from seven million technical inspections at German vehicle control stations.
Reading news like this makes me happier that I changed my mind about buying a Volkswagen Polo, and instead have decided to buy a Swift. From what I can find out, the Grand Vitara shares many of the same parts as the Swift too, such as steering wheels, electronics, switches & vents etc.
