    Mazda has topped a reliability survey by Warranty Direct, which studied claims it dealt with for cars aged 3-9 years old. In the 450,000 cars it studied in the UK and US, Mazda models accounted for just 8.04% of failures per 100 cars.

    It comes as no surprise that the Japanese manufacturers dominated the study; second-placed was Honda, with just 8.9 failures per 100 cars, followed by Toyota (15.78) and Mitsubishi (17.04). Subaru was sixth (18.46), followed by Nissan (18.46) and Lexus (20.05).

    Best-placed of the non-Japanese car-makers was Korean firm Kia (17.39, fifth) with the best of the Europeans being Mini (ninth place behind Lexus, 21.9). Citroen came in tenth (25.98), followed by Daewoo (26.3), Hyundai (26.36), Peugeot (26.59), Ford (26.76) and Suzuki (27.2).

    At the bottom end of the table were Chrysler's Jeep brand (46.36 failures per 100 vehicles), Land Rover (44.21), Saab (41.59), Alfa Romeo (39.13), Renault and Seat (both 36.87), Audi (36.74), Chrysler (34.9), Skoda (32.12), Jaguar (32.05), Volkswagen (31.44), Volvo (31.28), MG Rover (31.12) and Mercedes-Benz (29.9).

    Middling results were achieved by Porsche (27.48), Fiat (28.49), BMW (28.64) and Vauxhall (28.77).

    While surveys like this are somewhat flawed... I'm tickled that Mazda is on top... and Kia is at five... take that, doubters...

    Nabasa ko din ang balitang ito sa Land Rover magazine site. Parang sanay na sanay na silang nasa bottom of the list. hehehe. Di bale madami naman silang loyalist.

    Congratulations to Mazda. One of the local market's most underrated brand to date.

    Notice Toyota has almost double the rate of Honda and Mazda in this survey?

    Ang weird dito, 3-9 years old ang mga cars sa survey. 9 years ago, Mazda 323 at 626 pa yung mga products nila, which had some sensor and automatic transmission issues.

    Pero this is Warranty claims yata... how many cars stay in warranty for 9 years?

    Again, hindi perfect ang survey na ito, as the only cover warranty jobs, not jobs right outside the warranty period, and it doesn't specify how big or how little the problems are.

    The good part is: the huge number of cars covered (450 thousand!) helps lessen statistical errors, and if the company itself covers those warranties, then the warranty periods should be very similar.

    In other words... at the very least, Mazda is much, much better than people think.

    Number of failures per 100 cars? Is that "100 cars" referring to all vehicles? If so, I would think that the sheer number of Toyotas and other brands that sell in large volume would be at a disadvantage?

    it has nothing to do with how many cars toyota sold. these surveys are calculated as: 8.4 defects of Mazda cars for every 100 Mazda cars they sold.
