Models from 37 different brands were tested and surprisingly, how much you paid for your car doesn’t always determine how dependable it is. Some of the brands to make it into the top ten included Toyota, Honda and Buick.

Results were a lot closer than previous years, showing real improvements in manufacturing techniques across the auto industry. The study which counts the number of faults per hundred vehicles, achieved its best results this year with the average being only 227 faults per 100. This is in fact the 12th win in a row for Lexus which scored a result of just 136 problems as opposed to Land Rover which scored 438, the worst overall.
