Vauxhall’s best-seling Corsa model was the UK’s most serviced car in 2019, according to a new report from automotive data provider Autodata.
Generating the largest volume of aftersales work, the Corsa retained its position from 2018 -taking the lead ahead of Ford’s Fiesta.
When all markets are combined, Ford was the overall most serviced manufacturer. It was also the most serviced brand in the UK. However, a notable observation is the continued prominence of Volkswagen, which is in first place as the most serviced brand in 55% of the countries surveyed.
The most serviced Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) in the UK was the Ford Transit (model year 2006) and the most serviced motorcycle was the Honda CBR.
As well as highlighting the most serviced vehicles, the report highlights the dominance of national brands being the most serviced cars within their respective countries. In Germany, all top ten places were attributed to German cars and it was the same for French cars in France. In Italy, Italian cars made up 50% of the top ten and in Sweden, Swedish cars accounted for 70% of the top ten with Volvo models filling the top three positions.
In the UK, Japanese manufacturers continue to dominate the top 10 most serviced Hybrid vehicles filling nine out of the ten positions with the Mitsubishi Outlander (12-) retaining its first position from last year’s report.
The Nissan Leaf (10-18) was in first place for the third report in a row as the most serviced electric vehicle. The Tesla Model S (13-), after having not appeared in the top 10 in the either of the last two reports was in second place.
Internationally, the Most Serviced Car Report 2019 was also topped by the Corsa with the Ford Focus (model year 2004 and model year 2008) remaining in second and the Nissan Qashqai was third.
