The Most Reliable Cars in the Market to Purchase if You’re a Taxi Driver


There are a number of different things to consider when looking at purchasing a new car if you’re a taxi driver. Reliability is one of the main factors you need to think about – especially as your car is about more than just getting you from A-B – it’s your career.

See below some advice on the most reliable cars in the market, and things to consider when looking to purchase…

What do I want?

The first question to ask yourself is simple - what do you want? Working out specific car features, or specifications can really help, and can save you time in the long run. Think new vs used to start with, then break things down further into colour, number of doors and interior extras to narrow down your options.

What about size?

It goes without saying that as a taxi driver a 5 door is an essential. However, make sure you draw your attention to boot space as well – you can’t predict how many belongings your passengers are going to bring. Suitcases are an even bigger factor to think about if you do airport runs as large amounts of luggage are guaranteed to be brought.

What model do I want?

Once you’ve worked out the specifics of what you want, you can go further into the finer details and look into makes and models. Cab Direct offer a great range of cars and services. Whether you decide new or used - it’s great to use an outlet who can help source cars and show you the different options available, which again, saves time. When looking through different models, efficiency has to be at the top of your agenda. You need your car to be fuel efficient as a taxi driver to save you from having to stop at a petrol station every half hour.

Are there models I should avoid?

Safety should be at the forefront when looking at different models. A recent study by What Car named Honda as the UK’s most reliable manufacture. With Chevrolet, Ford and Skoda also making the top 10 list. It’s interesting to see that the more luxury and prestige the brand is, like Bentley and Porche, the more likely is appears to break down.

Make sure you do your research. When your car is at the front of your career you can’t afford to be calling out breakdown cover regularly and you need comfort in knowing it won’t let you down.
