Vauxhall came fourth in the Telegraph’s top 20 brands for reliability in 2018, with 90 problems per 100 vehicles, after coming in on the ninth place one year earlier. However, in a study carried out by AutoExpress, Vauxhall only managed to secure the 26th, just one place from the bottom position occupied by Chevrolet.
