You suck Ass (2 months ago)
Idiots hating in German cars.... If German cars wouldn't be good they wouldn't be so popular. There's nothing in this for me but why don't you do something with your life instead of hating. While you are talking shit hundreds of German cars are being sold so You either talk shit louder or just give up and stfu.

I am a mechanic and I can easily say that Audi's are not unreliable. I personally own one with 282,800 miles on it. They are high maintenance, not unreliable. They require attention, but that's what you get when you want an amazing car. I regularly check mine and it has never left me stranded or has had unexpected issues. As far as BMW, they are fun but they don't come close to Audi with traction and comfort. I don't see why you'd choose a BMW over an Audi or a Lexus. If you want a nice car and you don't want to do the work yourself, buy a Lexus. They are very nice, not as nice as Audi, but they will require much less maintenance. They are both equally reliable in the end, one just has less preventative maintenance required. Keywords here, high maintenance does NOT mean unreliable. Fucking check it when you need to. An Audi will not accept a 20k mile oil change, it needs them more frequently. If you want to abuse a car, don't buy an Audi. If you want to take care of a car and have it pay you back, go ahead and buy one. You should probably buy a Lexus.

tesla, audi , bmw, ,and mazda? Reliable?!? lol this is almost funny to watch.. seriously just buy a toyota. i have a 95 corolla with 230000 miles and it runs like a clock. tesla has horrible build quality and good luck trying to get it fixed out of warranty...

Ummmm go spend some time in a repair shop, ask a mechanic about Audi and BMW...Acura also has bad suspension systems and computer problems almost as bad as Cadillac....and I freggin love the Fiat Spyder 124 convertible sports car. Also it is easy to work on. This list doesn't seem very accurate...

Talk all you want about audi I've never seen anything less reliable and lower quality than dodge, I know someone who was had a dodge calibre for about a year, the rubber on the doors is coming off, the belt is squeaky, the tires it came with are probably punctured because they get flat really fast, the stereo controls are broken so you can't control anything without getting frustrated, the battery died out of the blue not too long after we got it, the a.c. doesn't work well etc, also my father has a durango, it's had a blown head gasket, leaking oil, and just recently the gear box starting rubbing together on something so that needs to be fixed. While I've never seen any other car have many problems like that, except a $2000 Kia

What when was BMW ever been reliable my parents have owned a 1999 BMW 540i that's completely broke down it was taken to the junk yard then the 2012 BMW X5 bought it brand new the transmission had some problems and engine so then they got a 2014 x5 the day they bought it the truck would not work couple of months later the steering wheel has to be replaced and then the camera and a whole bunch of stuff the only good one they had was 2013 528i

Good price and reliable. Toyota,Mazda,Honda,Subaru, Hyundai and Kiia. Unreliable. FiatChrysler,Mercedes, BMW, GMbrands,RangeRover and RenaultNissan.
Tesla. (1 year ago)
I don't know how Audi even made it on the list, it's literally the most unreliable car I've ever owned - broke like 30 times and they never took responsibility for anything. The f*cking glove compartment broke 2 weeks in. The glove compartment!? Seriously, how can you screw that up!? That should have been the first and only warning I needed. Also everybody I know that owns or has owned one has had the same experience. They drive fine, but the ownership experience is so bad that I'd rather walk. Audi service is also one of the most customer unfriendly experiences I've ever had - not what you'd expect from a premium brand. Seriously, might as well go with Fiat.
John (1 year ago)
And what year was your Audi? I own numerous Audi's and have none of the trouble you mention. Broke 30 times and they didn't take responsibility? Makes me wonder how you take care of things...

Man seeing the top three manufacturers I really thought he was going to say Ford next.
eurosonly (1 year ago)
Judging by t he top tiered cars only rich people are buying cars lately. As you go down the list you get the cheaper companies which ironically fall lower on the reliability list. What a strange pattern seeing as how non of those cars mentioned at the top of the list are known to be reliable. It's almost as if the manufacturers sponsored this video. No mention of Honda or Nissan. It's almost as if popularity now a days is synonymous with reliability, or at least when it comes to upper middle class cars.
Matthews AHR (1 year ago)
audi is not reliable
John (1 year ago)
Yes they are. I own numerous Audi's. Where do you get your facts
Rockaland2 (1 year ago)
first off not one german car has ever been reliable.. and when it breaks it cost the price of a new base model honda to fix it... CR is getting kick back for saying these brands are good.. they are not.. never will be
Fat Mr. Clean (1 year ago)
Honda should easily be on the top 5 wtf!
Jesus Fingers (1 year ago)
For those that are reliant on stereotypes for their views on certain brands of cars, German cars are very reliable as a whole but there are some interesting quirks depending on make and model that you won't find on any American cars.
Dylansoawesome (1 year ago)
I don't believe this video at all! Ask reputable mechanics about these cars! Normally they say German cars are not reliable and are endless money pits, as are most luxury cars except for Japanese luxury cars. Also they usually say Toyota/Lexus and Honda are the most reliable and will last the longest with Toyota/Lexus being top reliability! Given that these people repair cars, I trust them more that a source that gives "predicted reliability" as if that means anything.
Eric Y (1 year ago)
Dylansoawesome Stop generalizing. Porsche has a reputation for making the most reliable luxury sports cars for the last 50 years. Even the newer models require less maintenance than Mercedes, Audi and BMW.
Steve Wise (1 year ago)
JD Power ranks Audi in the bottom 10 worst auto makers in initial quality and number of complaints. The same for Mazda and Subaru ranking low as well. The only thing CR and JD Power agree upon is Fiat and Jeep both being lousy automakers.

BMW?. First day I had my 328, the driver's side mirror cracked. Tons of electrical problems too. When the lease was over, I was glad to see it go. Expensive piece of junk. Then I got my 10 year old Accord which has never had a problem. EVER! BMW Recommended? Talk to owners first, it's 50% recommended only.
Kenneth Bevineau (1 year ago)
These are great cars within 50k miles or less because of free maintenance. After 50k you have the Japanese makers. They make great reliable vehicles.

Porsche drivers who don't own 718 or 911 really are paying more for the badge than the vehicle. I never seen a car like the Cayenne or Macan where the cars are so devoid of creature comforts & an options list as long or as ridiculously expensive this side of Rolls Royce or Bentley.

Mazda made this list!? Go ahead and buy a malevolent, aggravating, zero dependable, abomination if you want.  I would gladly go to prison for punching the CEO of this company. My Mazda 5 has devastated my finances. The engine jumped time because it went 60 miles past its oil change. The transmission tanked. The thermostat costs $500.00 to replace. The back windshield wiper costs $100.00 to replace. The key cost $450.00 dollars to replace. Four mechanics have told me they decided not to get a Mazda because of my car.
Saul Villalobos (1 year ago)
Must be cause the mazda 5s still used ford sourced engine components, heard a whole lotta negative reviews on those. I think mazda discontinued the 5, along with the cx7s.
LastWonderland (1 year ago)
Audi = 86%, VW = 25%. Too bad Audi is a VW with nicer materials... SORRY but this is bullshit, most people that can afford a brand new luxury car will sell it before the warranty is gone.
John (1 year ago)
I haven't and where do you get your facts?
Kommentator (1 year ago)
Audi and Vw are actually independent manufacturers, and develop drivetrains and chassis independently. Unlike GM, where one company throws out a platform and everybody has to use it for the next 20 years until none of them is profitable.

Lyndon (1 year ago)
Sorry but Audi sucks, BMW sucks, if you are going to buy german at least buy Benz you are better off. At least from my experience and those I have known that drive Audi and BMW. I personally would drive a Ford before I touched a BMW or Audi and I own a mercedes C class. Very well put together zero issues so far with 80 k on it. Only had thermostat replaced that was it.

How on earth did BMW and Audi finish ahead of Lexus?? If reliability is what drives these scores no way they could finish so high. I suspect some money changed hands somewhere in the compiling of this list. And Mazda ahead of Toyota and Honda.?? Come on guys, at least make it look like you actually tried.

Mitusibishi as unreliable ? Not at all agree. It is more reliable than any German brand . It is on top with Toyota and Honda. BMW ,Audi and Mercedese are the worst brands on the road today. Porche is the most reliable of the German brands. I`d buy a 911 or a 929 GT RS before i`d buy an Audi ,BMW or Mercedes
Rick Tobin (1 year ago)
Guy Roussel fake news.

That's interesting that Volkswagen is less reliable that Audi. Since VW makes Audi as Audi is VW's luxury brand.

How do you know that Audi, BMW and Porsche are suddenly reliable? The first year they may be ok, but on the long term they just suck! Go for a Toyota, Hyundai/Kia and Mazda instead...
alexander wei (6 months ago)
There are good and bad for each car, though the most important factor is the owner and most expensive brands have shitty owners. However, I do agree you cant test reliability of a car in a year so this chart is pretty useless.
mikeythebold tv (10 months ago)
they were always reliable dont just spew hate because others told u so
NightArrow (1 year ago)
because they were not popular???? in my country people didn't use to buy German cars just because of this misconception of low reliability and high expensive maintenance, now VWs are flooding the market Audis are everywhere and Mercedes E and C class from 2014 and above are EVERYFINGWHERE, however about how many old German cars you see on the road I would say about 80% of them are at least running till today especially E36 3 series and Mercedes E class from that era on the other hand I can tell you how many Corollas are still being used on the road today from the 90s era about 5% or even less and I think it was the most bought car in my country you couldn't move your head anywhere without seeing it in the 90s now hmmmm its a rare occasion to see one.

If I had to listen to Consumer Reports latest reliability talk, " Toyota introduced ESC in 2004, before anyone else". In fact, they did introduced ESC in 2004 which was called differently. However, ESC was introduced in 1995 by Mercedes Benz followed by BMW in the same year. For BMW was called ESP ( Electronic Stability Program). So, Toyota did it...only 9 years later.

How come these lists always vary between other reports. For example JD power has a different list than this one. Some similar but I'm not sure who to trust more...
Rick Tobin (1 year ago)
Noah Pillay they don't get paid by car manufacturers. Most review company's get stroked buy car company's in the form of fancy perks. In turn they give good reviews. It's like American politics.
