That is great to see. Considering that Jaguar used to be known as one of the most unreliable cars around, Jaguar has really turned things around.

I'm surprised Porsche is number one. I would have thought Toyota or Lexus would have been number one. I was pretty far off though.

The study doesn't tell the whole story but there is something to be said for the brands that do best and worst. Who wants to bring their car in for an issue within 3 months of buying it? I certainly wouldn't buy a Fiat after seeing this study and the brands at the top of the list probably do produce better quality vehicles. All the middle though isn't really that much to think about.

Yeh but problems or issue's included in these surveys also include the new owners having problems using features in the car because they are to lazy to read the vehicle owners manual and other random stupid stuff like that.
Are you sure? It seems to me that they wouldn't include things that are just because people don't know how they work, as opposed to the feature actually being broken.

Read this article today and it talks a lot about what you guys are saying.

Sullivan said IQS has almost become too subjective. “People aren’t finding things like, ‘Hey, my engine died,’ or ‘I have oil leaking,’ or ‘This screw is loose.’” Instead, issues with entertainment and connectivity systems have moved to the fore and trouble with these technologies are tough to measure. In fact, voice recognition and Bluetooth pairing are top issues this year. “Trying to find [mechanical] errors in the first three months of service is getting really, really difficult,” said Sullivan.
