Are Japanese Vehicles as Reliable as They are Cracked Up to Be?

Last updated 5 years ago

For many drivers, reliability is the chief factor to consider when purchasing a car. To find out whether Japanese cars are truly as reliable as they are believed to be, consider the findings of the following studies.

Consumer Reports Study

In a recent study conducted by Consumer Reports, Japanese cars were voted the most reliable cars on the market. In fact, Japanese cars took the top nine spots in Consumer Reports’ annual reliability survey, which drew its results from feedback given by the magazine’s 1.3 million subscribers.

J.D. Power Study

J.D. Power and Associates is known around the globe for its vehicle dependability studies. Who leads the pack, year after year? Japanese cars do. In fact, Toyota Motor Company earned more quality awards than any other automaker in 2012, with many other Japanese car brands taking home several awards, too.

Warranty Direct Study

According to a UK-based automotive warranty company, Warranty Direct, the top 10 most reliable cars are all from Japanese brands, including the Toyota Yaris and Rav-4. Other top 100 reliable used Japanese cars include the Lexus IS, the Toyota Land Cruiser, and the Toyota Corolla.  Although there are plenty of other considerations to keep in mind when purchasing a car, it’s good to know that virtually all Japanese car brands will offer you the peace of mind of a dependable ride.

If you only consider the comfort and luxury of a car while neglecting the importance of the car’s reliability record, there’s a good chance that you will have to spend more money on car-related expenses in the long run, including maintenance and replacement car purchases. Instead, choose a reliable vehicle that is as safe and practical as it is fun to drive.
