SUBARU IS THE MOST RECOMMENDED MANUFACTURER IN THE NATIONAL CAR AWARDS BEATING PORSCHE AND EVEN HIGHLY RATED SKODA TO THE POLE POSITION IN THE ‘RECOMMENDED BY OWNERS’ CATEGORY.
Whilst Skoda gets top prize for best overall car maker in the WeLoveAnyCar.com National Car Awards, Subaru outstrips every other manufacturer when it comes to owner recommendations.
UK Subaru Owners: A Small Group of Happy Owners
According to CarCountUK, the WeLoveAnyCar.com service which gives out how many makes and models are registered to drive on UK roads, there are 87,710 Subarus on UK roads. With such low sales in recent years this figure alone is testament to Subaru longevity and reliability.
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, Subaru sold only 2,271 units in 2013.
WeLoveAnyCar.com ranks all cars sold and the Subaru is one of the best and certainly the most recommended by owners. However, the small group of happy Subaru owners in the UK will start to wither as older models fade away, a shame for such an admired manufacturer.
Perhaps part of the appeal of owning a Subaru in the UK is its exclusivity. One Subaru Legacy owner on the WeLoveAnyCar.com car review site said:
“Great car that stands out from the crowd because it is so rare. Fun to Drive”
Subaru: International Success Story
Fuji Heavy Industries, the company behind Subaru, produced some 647,488 cars to October in 2014, 8.4% higher than last year. Production is increasing month on month with 83,325 units produced in September alone.
Subaru is a very familiar site on the roads in countries like the USA and Australia. Subaru has increased exports by over 17% in 2014 and the brand and the highly regarded cars are an international success.
The UK’s Biggest Car Review Site
WeLoveAnyCar.com now has over 663,199 car owner reviews and covers virtually every model on UK roads.
Each motorist is first verified as the owner of the car and then asked to rate a number of factors including “would you recommend your car?” Owners rate from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest. Subaru received the highest rating overall.
