Are Japanese Cars Really Reliable?


Quote:
Japanese automakers including Toyota, Lexus, Honda and Acura are often seen as makers of long-lasting, reliable cars. But do all cars from Japanese automakers feature extraordinary reliability?

Gap has Narrowed

“Traditionally, Toyota and Honda are leading in terms of reliability and durability,” says Renee Stephens, vice president of automotive quality research at J.D. Power. “Lexus for example, has been on top of the durability ratings for 15 of the past 18 years.”

But Stephens explains that the gap has narrowed lately. This year, Daimler leads the charts, and GM is sitting in fourth place. Are the Japanese automakers slipping?

“Not exactly,” says Stephens, “but vehicles (from other brands) are improving year over year.” The industry as a whole has been improving she says. “Looking at tech and electronic in all cars, there used to be 155 problems per 100 vehicles,” Stephens says. “Now it’s down to 133 problems per 100 vehicles in 2014.”
Japanese cars have always been considered reliable, but is it just a myth? AutoGuide.com asks Are Japanese Cars Really Reliable?

I don't think there's a vehicle made today that won't last a long time if well cared for. It's all about maintenance. Among my vehicles is a 20 year old Dodge Caravan with almost 200,000 miles on it that's used for hauling and the "dirty work".

I don't think it's the Japanese aspect, but it's more of the customer service standards and commitment to rigorous testing. The Japanese are known to be very highly committed to quality in everything that they do and if their food is anything to go by, well...
