Red face Reliability

Well it is very good news for Styria....and very bad news for Bentley.

Current survey from U. K. advises buy Far East Cars.
No. 1 is Honda and no. 99 is Bentley. Also taken into account is cost of repairs if needed.
Mercedes, along with the others from the Father Land , have nothing to be boastful about either, though they rank better than the French and Italians.

Fascinating - what's the source? Do you have a web link?

Cool Re: Reliability

MSN web browser. Scroll through the Motoring Section to find it.
In the Powers Report from the USA , Japanese and Koran Porsche all ways seen to be at the top of the list.
Mid way are Mercedes BMW, VW and down the bottom the Italians and French.

Not only do these cars need to be reliable, but they have to be idiot proof and maintenance free.

All the non car people I know resent spending any sort of money on their cars for maintenance and despite paying over $50k for their car new get upset when they may have to fork out a few hundred to keep it reliable. Consquently after a while it becomes unreliable because they won't do maintenance and the car industry has done very good marketing about how terrible used cars are, so they just get another new one.

So really for these surveys the best sort of car is one that needs no maintenance for the first 6 years but the disintegrates after that time.

I know somebody who got rid of a late model toyota because they brakes were 'bad' and never once had them checked or repaired. Nice to pay $35k for a brake job!

I too am somewhat sceptical of these J D Powers' reports - but I must admit the products from Japan and Korea are first rate in terms of reliability.
