Surprising reliability index scores U.S. Surprising reliability index scores U.S. Surprising reliability index scores U.S.


The American magazine Consumer Reports presents an annual reliability index. The Japanese brands scored high but as always the top European brands ended surprisingly at the bottom.

Screening of Consumer Reports shows some surprising results this year. Not in the top of the list, there are 'just' the Japanese brands that are out of service. Of the top 10, only three brands are not Japanese.

Scion, a sister brand of Toyota, finishes first, followed by Porsche and Acura. The latter brand is Honda's premium brand like Scion and not sold in Europe. The U.S. makes scoring varied but in particular General Motors has made great progress. This is because the quality of the models is improved but also because the traditionally low-scoring brands Saturn, Pontiac and Hummer are shut down. Chrysler has a long way to go, the models of the mark must be assessed as the most unreliable.

What is especially striking is that the premium European brands as low scoring. Alongside sister brand Chrysler and Dodge, we find Mercedes, BMW, Mini and Audi back on the last six places. Audi is the hardest daler compared to last year and A6 according to the survey the most unreliable car in the U.S. you can get.
