There is also more to go wrong: Porsche Pantechnicon owners complain that the little plasti-chrome trims have fallen off their electric window switches. This fault won’t happen on a Dacia Dustbin for several reasons!
I’ll stick with my lexus - nearly 3 years in on a near 13 year old car and only maintenance and consumables. The only thing wrong with the car is the heated seats don;t work which i never use anyway.
The wife’s KIA is pretty robust too - I’m surprised the clutch is still original given the grief she gives it going from reverse to first without coming to a complete stop…
I want something with a bit of zip as my next car and both these marques no give me options beyond ze germans, i have to admit i’ll be trying them first in a few years time.
Normally with these surveys, when you dig in a bit, its electrical faults that make up the majority - which fits with the prestige marques being lower down as people spec them with more electronics - so more to go wrong. Hardly a surprise Tesla are near the bottom, it’s a motorised bloody PC.
Vauxhall seem to have made some serious effort… they used to be down with land rover not so long ago
