The popularity of staycations is increasing as families choose to remain in the UK over the summer.
With this in mind, people will be keen to get a model that is dependable.
Research by Warranty Direct has found the Toyota Corolla is the most trustworthy motor, as only seven per cent of them break down every year.
This means anyone planning a staycation can look forward to the car being able to handle the journey and get the whole family there in one piece.
Warranty Direct managing director Duncan McClure Fisher stated: "Most cars will go wrong at some stage, but there's nothing worse than the family's excitement at setting off on holiday being destroyed by a morning spent on the hard shoulder."
Both the Honda Civic and Accord had a breakdown rate of ten per cent, while the Toyota Auris was on 11 per cent.
Typically, electrical issues and axle and suspension troubles caused the most problems and families could face a big bill if something of this nature were to go wrong.
