You have to scroll down the page a bit to see the full table. Also near the
bottom of the page is a link to a .pdf of this table. You can sort the
results by what's important to you. I sorted by 6yrs - 10yrs old, because we
tend to keep our vehicles at least 3yrs past warranty and longer.
I think the final notes (pasted below) says it all:
Notice that Toyota and Honda products dominate the upper end of the
reliability spectrum (accounting for a combined total of 90% of the best
automobiles) more than GM and the Chrysler Group dominate the bottom end of
the reliability spectrum, which two of the Detroit Three account for only
73.3% of the worst automobiles. In other words, the best automobiles are
concentrated in two automobile manufacturers, but the worst automobiles are
more broadly distributed among motor vehicle manufacturers.
Also note that Toyota Motor Corporation, Honda Motor Company, all other auto
manufacturers headquartered in Japan, and Hyundai Motor Company
(headquartered in South Korea) have not one entry among the 30 worst
automobiles. Kia Motors Corporation (South Korea) has one entry. However,
two North America-based auto manufacturers and one Europe-based auto
manufacturer have multiple entries.
Not that I've ever owned one, nor would I ever waste that much money on a
car, but I was surprised at some of the low grades BMW received on some of
Oh this chart also shows discontinued models since these tests started years
ago and just get updated every year.
