Yep. Scion has a big advantage because there's only 3 models and they're all compacts. Toyota has to carry small and large pickups, various SUV's, etc., and the more "stuff" on your vehicle the more things go wrong. I think by model though, the XB2 is going to stay up at the top for a long time to come because it's built on already proven Toyota tech.mkaresh said:Thanks for the welcome.
They mention Scion, not Toyota, because they're ranking brands. Toyota is of course both the parent corporation and its primary brand. But if you're noting the top brand, it's Scion.
I personally think it's more harmful than helpful to look at reliability by brand. There's so much variation from model to model within the same brand that it's best to look at the score for a model, and forget about the brand score if the point is choosing a reliable car.
Brand scores are for those interested in, well, keeping score and those who don't want to dig any deeper to get at the model info.
But, for the PRICE of a Lexus, I can BUY 2-3 boxes . . .mkaresh said:Well, your box scored better than Lexus in reliability. For acceleration, ride smoothness. seat comfort...maybe not
I love my heated seatsalfundo said:but of course, we are talking about a reliability study. not a heated seats study. i'll take it for the Companys baby brand.
