The only similar survey I'm aware of is the Top Gear/JD Power survey that they did each year. Which magazine also do a yearly review of cars.

I think that I remember seeing that the JD Power UK survey has migrated to AutoExpress this year.
The last one I saw made the point that it was based on questionnaires mailed to owners in cooperation with the DVLA who, I gather, were able to arrange that mailings went to the same proportion of each make/model owners.
The results were fairly predictable with the Japanese models at the top and the volume European producers firmly at the bottom. Despite that, I bought a new Vauxhall, a triumph of hope over experience?
