Hyundai from Korea, Mini from Germany and Nissan from Japan are tied at 170. And the top German brands? They are far below the standard: BMW is 15th with 184 problems per 100 vehicles.

Audi, on the other hand, has fallen with 20 problems for over 100 vehicles. And it gets worse: Mercedes has 45 more problems with Ford... 65! Overall, JD Power indicates that global reliability has increased slightly. Are you guaranteed? That remains to be seen, as the study is based on cars that are still young (3 years old). It is highly likely that the record will deteriorate further in the coming years.
