This from Consumerís Report today.

Most and Least Reliable Cars


• Audi, once a sinkhole of service problems, finished third. Not only was it Audi’s best showing ever, it was by far the most reliable European brand. Audi has enjoyed several years of upward progress now, so its good standing is looking less and less like a fluke. Part of the reason is that it has relatively few truly new designs. The Audi Q3 SUV, which was already on sale in Europe for a few years, debuted in the U.S. as the most reliable new car in the survey.

Great news for the brand esp. in light of the dieselgate.

Not surprising with Lexus and Toyota but good on the Q3 for getting the most reliable new car spot in the U.S.

That graph has graphically shown the dilemma I've been facing for some time.....it's difficult to sell/trade-in a car when it is absolutely trouble free!

My wife and I finally broke down and sold our Mazda to get the Q3, but it was based solely in the Q3's styling and driving enjoyment, because the Mazda was virtually trouble free (but not fun!)

Now we face the dilemma again....our Lexus has NEVER had a single issue, so why would we consider getting rid of it? Probably same answer as above....we just want to have a car that is more fun with updated styling.

Although cableguy decided against the Lexus NX and instead went with the Q3....I think I'll go for both and purchase an NX F-Sport to run along side our Q3.
Styling and fun....what more could two (too) old grandparents ask for!

I do think the NX F-Sport is nice and worth getting. My wife's RX was trouble free for 10 years! She was very apprehensive about getting something other than Lexus and this report today has made her very happy!

I don't read about many problems at all on the forum. It is one of those things where you don't really realize how nice it is to not have problems because nothing ever happens. Like how breathing normally is such a blessing and you only realize when you get a cold and have congestion.

Audi could use some good press right now. The VW thing really gets to me.

I am surprise Lexus/Toyota is up there as there were fatalities in their history the last 5-6 years - which is the the result of the stuck pedal in the lineup.
