Lexus, Toyota Top Car Reliability Survey, Buick Is First US Brand To Land In The Top 3
Consumer Reports has recently released the result of its Annual Auto Reliability Survey. Japanese automaker Toyota Motor Corporation's car brands Lexus and Toyota have once again topped the said list. The surprising addition to the top three most reliable cars is the US automaker General Motors' brand Buick.
Toyota Motor Corp Continues To Be The Most Reliable
It is not unexpected that Lexus and Toyota have led the said list again. Consumer Reports lauded Toyota Motor Corporation's conservative, revolutionary approach. If it is not broken, stick with it. Apparently, Toyota has been successful in its tried-and-true methods to build its vehicles.
Lexus and Toyota have received reliability scores of 86 and 75, respectively.
The magazine's Director Jake Fisher pointed out the diversity of the list. It's evident that Asian car brands have dominated in the Top 10 list. South Korean automakers Kia and Hyundai are ranked number 5 and 7, respectively. Japanese brands Mazda, Nissan's Infiniti and Honda are at number 6, 8 and 10.
Meanwhile, German automakers Volkswagen Group's Audi and BMW complete the Top 10 list at number 4 and 9.
GM's Buick Represents The US In The Top Three List
The magazine's Director Jake Fisher has described Buick's entry in the top three reliable cars list. He said in an interview that General Motors (GM) is currently making some very good cars. It includes the very reliable Buick cars.
According to Bloomberg, Buick has certainly accomplished something. Its entry in the top three list is the first for a US brand in more than 35 years of record-keeping. It should be pointed out that Consumer Reports had used more than 20 years of data. The survey itself had started in 2001.
Bloomberg further reports that Buick's most reliable model is its Verano compact car. Fisher added that the high rating of Buick should be a wake-up call to other manufacturers. It has received a reliability score of 75, only three points behind Toyota.
