And parent company Land Rover is the brand most likely to develop a fault. Volkswagen Polos come top for reliability.

Motoring experts Warrantywise analysed which makes are claimed against most and least under warranty, focusing on models between seven and ten years old.

The least reliable car was found to be a 2010 Range Rover Sport, with common faults including suspension, alternator, brakes and electrics.

Second was a 2008 Vauxhall Zafira and third a 2011 Vauxhall Insignia.
