In its 25th annual Vehicle Dependability Study J.

D. Power and Associates reaffirms Lexus dominance in the auto industry with regards to reliability. Scoring a 68 on the scale of problems per 100 vehicles, Lexus is alone at the top with number two Mercedes scoring a 104. A lower score is better. Lexus beats other luxury brands like BMW by almost a 1 to 2 margin. BMW, with a score of 130, has about twice the rate of reported problems as do Lexus vehicles. The industry average this year is 133. Toyota brand vehicles with a score of 114 finished 6th overall (or fifth behind Lexus).

The J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study is a comprehensive poll of owners. It asks owners what problems they have had and how many. Since the vehicles need time in owner’s hands, the study looks back. This year’s study looked at a full twelve months of ownership of model year 2011 vehicles. - See more at: http://www.torquenews.com/1083/study-finds-lexus-about-twice-dependable-bmw#sthash.txGphECI.dpuf
