: er Steve,
: The recent JD Power survey showed that mercs and BMWs were a long way off having the lowest faults in the business. Seem to remember mercs were distinctly average and the BMWs miles behind the Jags and Japanese cars.
JD Power is purely subjective as it's based on opinions of owners.
Better to look at fleet management figures. The sort of figures that companies like Renault/Nissan wish to ban from publication.
Anyway post was just to point out that you can't determine a manufacturers reliability on your own experience, and also I am an opinionated bastard who never let's facts gets in the way of my view!!!
