For the last few years, Autodata, Europe’s leading provider of automotive technical information, has published lists of the top 10 most serviced cars.
This year, Autodata has published an industry report that shares not only the top 10 most serviced cars, but also the top 10 most serviced LCVs; motorcycles; hybrids; petrol and diesel vehicles of 2017 in the 20 countries (21 for motorcycles) with the highest usage of Autodata’s technical information.
Automotive aftermarket professionals (independent mechanics, workshops, roadside assistance businesses, etc.) in over 100 countries have access to Autodata’s precise technical information, which is required to effectively service, maintain and repair (SMR) vehicles from more than 155 manufacturers.
“Our technical information has provided the aftermarket with accurate and in-depth automotive technical information for over 40 years. Today, our data and extensive user-database are also able to provide valuable insights into servicing, maintenance and repair trends that can help businesses to plan effectively,” said Max Lienard, Chief Strategy & Innovation Officer at Autodata.
The Top 10 Most Serviced Vehicle lists are based on the number of service schedules accessed by Autodata’s subscribers. With over 77,000 professional automotive workshops currently subscribed to Autodata’s applications, the report provides insights into SMR trends and servicing variations across 21 countries in 2017.
The 21 countries covered in the Most Serviced Vehicles of 2017 report include: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States (motorcycles only).
For the third consecutive year, the Ford Focus (04-08) was the most serviced car in the UK.
The Ford Focus was the world’s top-selling car worldwide in 2004 and the top selling in the UK from 1998 until 2009, when it was dethroned by the Ford Fiesta. Considering that there are more than 1.5 million Ford Focuses on UK roads, it’s no surprise that it is currently the most popular model seen in UK workshops.
