The Question of Unreliable Cars

The Question of Unreliable Cars

Hyundai has been named the most reliable car brand according to the JD Power Survey 2018. With this subject trending in the industry, we thought we would question the conundrum of unreliable cars.

The real question, then, is not if it affects the operation of your fleet, but rather exactly how it does and what you need to do about it. Sounds serious. And it is — the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that came into force on 25th May 2018 is the biggest update to UK data protection in two decades. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a lot of... Read full article
