The Warranty Direct-inspired horror vehicle would break down every other month and cost an average of £2,050 to fix each year.

The Reliability Index is a unique tool that measures car reliability by considering average cost of repair, frequency of failure, age and mileage. Overall, the Monster Mk1 claims a Reliability Index figure of over 500 – more than five times that of the average car.

"The Monster Mk1 represents the worst-performing vehicles in every sector, from suspension to electrics, on our roads today.", commented Warranty Direct managing director, Duncan McClure Fisher.

"The wide range of cars included in our special blend highlights how mostly reliable cars can be dragged down by one problem part.", he added.
