A spokesman for Warranty Wise said: “Warrantywise does not release data for cars unless we have a minimum of 100 vehicles as a sample amount. This data relates to claims between 2010 and 2020 and may not represent the reliability of new vehicles as all of the data in the set is for vehicles over 3 years old.”

    German engineering is great, it's designed to fail at exactly 50,000km not one cm more. VAG probably makes more on repairs than sales.

    Good ole Scotty Kilmer isright again - Toyota/Lexus/Honda - everything else is an endless money pit with the exception of "certain" cars like the Mazda Miata which tends to score top 10 in the west every single year as top spot as most reliable. If you mention a German car to Scotty - "rolling pile of crap" - lol. I like when he shows Mercedes and BMW parts and explains why they are terrible designs and terrible parts quality. Lease is fine - they last 4 years. Check the 2 minute mark sltoos.info/for/v4GAnJaniphosH4/video

    See, I`ve been driving baby Fiats & big Jaguars (mainly XJ`s) in tandem for the last 25 years & have found them incredibly reliable, which is why I continue to stick with them. I`m not sure what all this tells us really... It could mean people driving certain cars dont look after them properly, or people who drive certain cars moan about minor things more.. Its impossible to say really. Maybe do a breakdown of the faults for each brand?

    Can confirm the Lexus ranking, having previously owned a 2004 RX330 (totaled one an accident) and currently owning a 2011 RX350 and a 2016 IS300 F-Sport, I can tel you firsthand that they’re remarkable reliable. Never had an engine problem. The old ‘04 RX330 once had a bad alternator after about 270k miles, but other than that they’ve never broken once. Even the ‘11 RX350 with 250k miles hasn’t had anything go wrong. The ‘16 IS300 F-Sport is barely even broken in at 52k miles, and hasn’t even been to the shop for maintenance yet!

    You rank major car manufacturers and completely leave out Subaru in the list... Also it’s funny the list is completely different on every continent. The only constant is that Toyota last forever in the top 3.


    Its not reliable. Owners buying certain brands are diffrent. There are in other segments. But yeah. Im impressed by korean cars and Lexus. But i though it will be high.

    So; never buy a Land Rover. German cars are all rather dodgy too. Buy a Fiat? Thats odd. Honda , Lexus and Toyota were all rather predictably at the top.


    Stick with the first 12 ESP the First 5 My cars two Hondas CRXS over 30 years old , 1 FJf0 Toyota 40 Years old, 1 Toyota Supra 30 years old, 1 Acura TSX, And 1 Nissan Titan. All pretty dang good All over 15 years old.

    “German Engineering “ means advanced leading edge Engineering, not reliability. German machines of all kinds tend to be over-Engineered for any given purpose....over-Engineering means more likely to have something “Gone Wrong”....

    I have just traded in my 20 year old Land Rover discovery on a beautiful Chinese machine lol. That Land Rover has cost me more in repairs than it’s worth. I loved it but hated it too. There was a saying, if a Land Rover is not leaking than there is something wrong with it.

    Hey carwow, you should divide the average repair cost by the average purchase price for each car to get a more accurate score. This is because more expensive cars to buy will be more expensive to repair. According to you if a Jag breaks down once a year and it costs $500 it is less reliable than a cheaper car that breaks down 5 times a year and costs $1000 to repair ( 1000/5=200 average cost of repair)

    Do not agreed to your listing especially regarding Porsche. Had more troubles with my Mini than any of my Porsche and had plenty. Fiat, Alpha Romeo, Renault, Peugeot and the like, more reliable than Porsche ? You're jocking off-course or is it a driver's factor that you haven't included, or yoou mean without proper maintenance ? This listing is a bit gloomy.

    PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE! This ‘study’ is a list provided by a warranty provider. People take out warranties on big expensive cars because they cost a lot to fix when they go wrong, as evidenced by this ‘study’. Ok, so tell me something I don’t know? Subaru drivers don’t bother with warranties at all? Makers of small light uninspiring shitboxes are higher ranked than BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover and Audi. Yeah, of course they are as a shitbox cost nothing to fix. I’d still rather drive any of these Euro cars than an uninspiring japwagon. The Japanese are very conservative in their use of tech, and the Europeans are much more leading edge. The former is boring but more reliable - proven, the latter is exciting and more leading edge but prone to more problems. Take your choice people. Look at the design of click the Japanese have in their cars. It’s not changed since the 1980s. Old 🎩
