Latest from Revive, who reckon the VW Golf is the car most likely to need minor body repairs. That could be something to do with the way the Golf GTi has become the flava at da Tesco car meet, yeah?
The Volkswagen Golf is the vehicle model with the highest chance of requiring minor bodywork repairs. That’s according to smart repair specialists, Revive! Auto Innovations, who has analysed records across all 53 of its franchises to identify which vehicles their technicians repair the most.
The Volkswagen Golf was top of the charts, but for the wrong reasons, as in 2021 Revive! conducted a total of 425 repairs on the model for UK motorists. This was 80 more than the second most repaired model – the Mercedes-Benz A Class.
The A-Class was closely followed by the C-Class, with 340 repairs in 2021, while Ford made two unfortunate entries with the Fiesta and Focus models requiring 295 and 260 repairs in 2021, respectively.
Andy Hupfield, UK operations director at Revive!, commented: “The Volkswagen Golf is widely recognised as a reliable family car, so it may come as a surprise to some that the model was the most repaired vehicle by Revive! last year.
