Tow Car Awards 2018

Jun 20, 2005
Just received my August edition of PCv,. Getting earlier than ever :)
On the whole a very comprehensive assessment across a large number of vehicles.
However, just one observation. Why do these “tests “ say nothing about durability and long term reliability.
I particularly note JLR have done very well, good luck to them, but will they last :eek:hmy:
Most of the reliability surveys across many publications tend to put them at the bottom of the pile :whistle:
Have I missed something :kiss:

The tests can only assess a car on its driving and towing ability as the reliability and durability cannot be assessed on a short drive round a test track. Basically what you are getting is an assessment of the cars ability as a tow car but you have to make your own judgement on its other merits.

As you say DD you can only go by the reliability tables from other publications. Perhaps a reliability ranking from another magazine could be included in the test results. That should knock LRJ off the podium once and for all. Just another little observation and only a slight deviation I promise..... There are so many well proven reliable tow cars out there BUT they are all trusty old faithfuls like the original Sorrento, 2.8 Pajero/Shoguns and Hyundai Terrican. You can see why so many people hang on to them, even just as a tow car, because they are so much better than the new fangled things produced at the moment.
