how come they all suffer from axle and suspension problems? Do you not think this is a bit dubious? What it really means is in britain we have the worst roads in Europe full of potholes.
A more interesting survey would be the best and worse roads then the best and worst councils for footing your repair bills!
Lexus RX300 absolute disaster backed up by an extremely arrogant UK operation. A car with less than 50K miles on it at 5 years old develops a fault with 2 warning lights (bear in mind this is the supposed luxury brand of Toyota) pathetic warranty compared to the other far eastern brands. Turns out that the ABS pump is shot, along with the wiring loom and get this, I need a new windscreen. Apparently, and I have this in writing from Lexus who were too cowardly to post this on their facebook page, that corrosion can occur on a connection point on the windscreen that duly spreads throughout the car. Cost to repair, £6500.
What I have learned from this is that just because a vehicle costs a pile of cash and has a badge does not mean it's reliable or that the company has any decency about it nomatter what they may claim. I will never buy Lexus again and if you value the £ in your pocket buy ANYTHING BUT LEXUS OR TOYOTA.
Lol the Bmw mini i notice they say buy one from 2007 on thats because the 2001>on had a 1970s rover gearbox in them which used to blow up It also has and still has the crystler neon engine in it.
And then there is the power steering pump that gets dirty and wont shut off and eventually catches fire!
Oh nearly forgot about the stage one cooling fan that goes after a years use but many mini owners dont even know about that fault.
Worst car i have ever owned traded it in after two months ownership.
Suprised with the land and range rovers........ always fancied one.....lol
The Mercs............merc havent made a good car in almost a 2 decades
This appears to be a very inaccurate article. For instance, they are quoting figures from Warranty Direct and claim the Mercedes CLS has a 58% chance of failing and a £1,614 repair bill - but the Warranty Direct website shows average reliability for the car and an average repair bill of £343.96.

What does this say about the roads if they're mainly suspension issues?
The first generation BMW Mini (01>07) is a shambles. Power steering pump is a major fault on them. Ours has only covered 53,000 from new, well cared for by main dealer etc...
and the list is as follows...
1. Power steering pump failed after 30,000 (but just after 3 year warranty expired = major expense)
2. Drivers window jammed after 35,000
3. Door hinges are knackered, which meant the window wouldn't close after the door shut
4. Tyre pressure sensors have a mind of their own
5. Engine warning light enjoys coming on once per month
6. The engine cooling fan is made of the thinnest, cheapest plastic they could find and has desintegrated.
Although the second generation is much better, I wouldn't buy another one!!
