    I don't know how Audi even made it on the list, it's literally the most unreliable car I've ever owned - broke like 30 times and they never took responsibility for anything. The f*cking glove compartment broke 2 weeks in. The glove compartment!? Seriously, how can you screw that up!? That should have been the first and only warning I needed.

    Also everybody I know that owns or has owned one has had the same experience. They drive fine, but the ownership experience is so bad that I'd rather walk. Audi service is also one of the most customer unfriendly experiences I've ever had - not what you'd expect from a premium brand.

    Seriously, might as well go with Fiat.

    Judging by t he top tiered cars only rich people are buying cars lately. As you go down the list you get the cheaper companies which ironically fall lower on the reliability list. What a strange pattern seeing as how non of those cars mentioned at the top of the list are known to be reliable. It's almost as if the manufacturers sponsored this video. No mention of Honda or Nissan. It's almost as if popularity now a days is synonymous with reliability, or at least when it comes to upper middle class cars.

    For those that are reliant on stereotypes for their views on certain brands of cars, German cars are very reliable as a whole but there are some interesting quirks depending on make and model that you won't find on any American cars.

    My wife has a 2015 Honda Civic 30,000 miles zero issues. My 2012 Honda Civic 72,000 miles zero issues. My 2001 Honda Civic 206,742 miles zero parts replaced. The problem is new CVT transmission people these days drive full throttle every light and blow up transmissions. I don't drive my Honda's like a race car, I drive my sports car like a sports car.

    I don't believe this video at all! Ask reputable mechanics about these cars! Normally they say German cars are not reliable and are endless money pits, as are most luxury cars except for Japanese luxury cars. Also they usually say Toyota/Lexus and Honda are the most reliable and will last the longest with Toyota/Lexus being top reliability! Given that these people repair cars, I trust them more that a source that gives "predicted reliability" as if that means anything.

    BMW?. First day I had my 328, the driver's side mirror cracked. Tons of electrical problems too. When the lease was over, I was glad to see it go. Expensive piece of junk. Then I got my 10 year old Accord which has never had a problem. EVER! BMW Recommended? Talk to owners first, it's 50% recommended only.

    Mazda made this list!? Go ahead and buy a malevolent, aggravating, zero dependable, abomination if you want.  I would gladly go to prison for punching the CEO of this company. My Mazda 5 has devastated my finances. The engine jumped time because it went 60 miles past its oil change. The transmission tanked. The thermostat costs $500.00 to replace. The back windshield wiper costs $100.00 to replace. The key cost $450.00 dollars to replace. Four mechanics have told me they decided not to get a Mazda because of my car.

    • Saul Villalobos

      Audi and Vw are actually independent manufacturers, and develop drivetrains and chassis independently. Unlike GM, where one company throws out a platform and everybody has to use it for the next 20 years until none of them is profitable.

      in my country people didn't use to buy German cars just because of this misconception of low reliability and high expensive maintenance, now VWs are flooding the market Audis are everywhere and Mercedes E and C class from 2014 and above are EVERYFINGWHERE, however about how many old German cars you see on the road I would say about 80% of them are at least running till today especially E36 3 series and Mercedes E class from that era on the other hand I can tell you how many Corollas are still being used on the road today from the 90s era about 5% or even less and I think it was the most bought car in my country you couldn't move your head anywhere without seeing it in the 90s now hmmmm its a rare occasion to see one.

    If I had to listen to Consumer Reports latest reliability talk, " Toyota introduced ESC in 2004, before anyone else". In fact, they did introduced ESC in 2004 which was called differently. However, ESC was introduced in 1995 by Mercedes Benz followed by BMW in the same year. For BMW was called ESP ( Electronic Stability Program). So, Toyota did it...only 9 years later.

    Some of the comments around Honda, Toyota and Mercedes seems to be referencing 10 year old data. Those brands' scores have tumbled over the years. Mazda's rise in the ranks has benefitted from a clean-sheet Skyactiv platform, secession from Ford and a brilliant new corporate identity. So those of you badmouthing Mazda need to update their references and put away old experiences. IMO.

    • dadsfave
      dadsfave 5 месяцев назад +3

      Initial reliability is determined mostly by factory quality control. Long term reliability is determined by product design. It does not just happen. Manufacturers with good long term reliability are those that tirelessly work to analyze part failures and improve part design. These manufacturers truly want their products to last with a minimal amount of repair, while lesser manufacturers regard repairs as a major part of their revenue stream. Good long term reliability is a measure of the manufacturer's attitude and design capabilities. Look for the brand badge of a good manufacturer.

    • Gregarproto
      Gregarproto 7 месяцев назад

      If you have shitty initial reliability, long term reliability is more than likely affected as well. Plus they're predicting reliability for cars that are currently available for sale as new or very lightly used. They state that it's a prediction up front. And the cars produced today have very little to do with the cars produced 10+ years ago and some even just a few years ago to their previous generation. Can't compare cars that have nothing in common with each other other than their brand badge and model name.

    • Captain Jack
      Captain Jack 7 месяцев назад +1

      ocramidajzj You need to read your comment again, slowly and you will see the error in logic. Reliability is something you develop over time. A brand new platform (Skyactiv) can't all of a sudden become a world beater when it hasn't passed the most basic test. Time. Toyota, Honda, Lexus have consistently ranked tops in long term reliability. Other manufacturers have improved significantly (Hyundai, KIA) but it took them.....yes you guessed it....TIME.
      Initial Reliability and Long Term Reliability are not the same things.

  • Josh Triplett
    Josh Triplett 7 месяцев назад +2

    Realizing that I;m a Subaru fan (owned them for years), it was good to see them make the list, but really aside from Lexus, how did the others make the top? As a mechanic/hobbyist/enthusiast I caution every one of my friends and family not to buy German unless they are ready for the bills that come with them. Great cars out of the box with many refinements, but murderous on your wallet when they need servicing. You can love them, just be prepared to pay.

      It also depends on market share and price. Mechanics that see mercs everyday are good at fixing them. America has a lot of toyota and chev, so they're probably more fixable to americans. European cars are also extremely expensive because of EU laws. Etc.

    Audi the top brand? According to dashboard-light.com statistics on long-term power-train reliability in 1.2M US trade-ins, Audi ranks 31 out of 37 brands. The A3 is "well below average" and the A4 has "chronic reliability issues". Sure the Q7 and Q5 seem good but they've only been on the market 10 and 7 years. Q7 avg trade-in mileage was only 91K vs industry average of 126K. Audi invented the diesel fraud. More cheats have continued to be found in their products, not just diesels. In 10 CR vehicle categories, Audi topped only one, while Toyota topped 3 and Chevrolet topped 2.

      S4: average reliability, traded-in with low mileage (582 trade-ins). S5: insufficient data with 196 cars. The 2010 S4 looks really bad (over 15% of trade-ins had power train problems) while with the S5 only 10% did (with even lower mileage). Combining them (S4, S5 all years), 12.5% of 582 S4s (= 73 cars), 7.65% of 196 S5s (=15 cars) gives 11.3% of 778 cars -- still pretty bad considering the low average mileage.

      Truedelta confirms that Audi A3/S3/A4/S4 have more repair trips than average. Probably higher cost per trip too!

      According to Wikipedia, 5000 R32s were sold in the US. The website says it has 102 trade-ins for which the average trade-in mileage was only 92K vs an industry average of 126K. The site says it has insufficient data for a reliability rating of the R32. It seems all its data is for model years 2008 and earlier.

      The trade-in site is oriented towards older vehicles, going back as far as 93. A model's score is some kind of average of all the years, so bad years in the distant past could drag the score down, even though newer models are better. But, hey, I think that if a car manufacturer releases unreliable and fraudulent products, it should take them a while to rebuild their reputation.

      +dadsfave And the Audi S4 and S5 have exactly the same drivetrain, a supercharged V6. Exactly the same components.

      They also have a car listed as a "VW Rabbit" which, of course, does not exist.. but it does seem to be relatively reliable. So that's good, I guess? Also, could you explain what they mean when they say "VW Cabriolet" and "VW GTi".. and "VW R32" (a picture of a basic VW golf 4 shows up when you look at it, the golf r32 was not even sold in the US)
      The Passat CC and Tiguan are also listed, but were never sold in north america, but apparently they have tested a few hundred of them and they all suck, they both have a zero.

      The website reports only power-train problems (engine and transmission), not electrical, climate-control or suspension issues. When a car is traded in, they collect its mileage and whether it has an engine or transmission problem. That's it. I'm not associated with the site. If you wish to challenge it, contact the guy who runs it -- I'm sure he will answer you. Note that long-term reliability is less a function of the assembly line and more a function of product design. The S4 and S5 may have had different engine/transmission options sold in the US.

    Bought a brand new Land Rover Range Rover HSE, literally broke down in 2 months with less than 2k miles. They're right about that brand for sure.

      Next time do your research. Everyone knows that manufacturer is crap on reliability.
