Peugeot 107 is one of the most reliable cars you can buy

The Peugeot 107 is one of the most reliable cars you can buy according to research.

Warranty Direct found that the French carmaker' city car proved the least unlikely to break down after it analyses 50,000 live policies.

The UK direct consumer warranty provider measured overall reliability by combining rate of failure, average mileage, age and repair cost. This means the lower the index score, the more reliable the car is.

Peugeot's 107 came out with an impressive score of 19 - cooling and heating faults were the biggest cause of breakdown totally near half at 46 per cent. The largest repair bill for the car was £763.88.

The hatchback, available in either 3-door or 5-door, was followed by the Citroen C1 with electrical faults causing 44 per cent of cars to break down. It's largest repair bill was around £300 more than the 107 at £1030.

The Kia Picanto suffered the same main problem as the C1 with electrical faults blamed for 47 per cent of cars breaking down. It's score was 27 but it largest repair bill was £724.

Volkswagen's Lupo had the cheapest repair bill of £486.75 in fourth with a score of 31 but 57 per cent of problems were again down to electrical faults. The Toyota Aygo completed the top five with on 32 although £976.05 was the largest bill. The Aygo's most common fault for packing up was cooling and heating faults like the 107.

But it was not all good news for Peugeot it's 1007 was the second worse for reliability with a score of 106 - the average reliability score of all cars is 100 - with electrical faults responsible for 39 per cent of breakdowns. The largest repair bill was £1596.80. 

The worst for reliability was the Smart For Two with a marginally higher score of 107.  The most common fault was axle and suspension faults causing 32 per cent of breakdowns with the biggest bill £1565.31.

The Fiat 500 (score 77, axle and suspension faults, £2,074), the Daewoo Matiz (score 71, axle and suspension faults, £637.70) and Rover CityRover (score 70, electrical faults, £809.94) complete the top five.
