Toyota Motor Corporation Vehicles Dominate J.D. Power and Associates 2012 Vehicle Dependability Study

TORRANCE, Calif., February 15, 2012 – Eight Lexus, Toyota, and Scion models captured segment awards in the 2012 J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study, a performance equal to all other vehicle brands combined and more than twice as many as the runner-up nameplate.

The study also found:
Lexus is the number one nameplate improving by 23 fewer problems/100;
Toyota is the highest ranked non-premium nameplate and tied for third place overall, improving by 18 fewer problems/100; and
Scion achieves its highest ever position at fifth place, jumping up 17 positions and improving by 55 fewer problems/100.
“We are extremely pleased that not only did we win awards in eight of the 14 model segments, but that in two segments we finished one-two and made the podium in 12 segments overall”, said Jim Lentz, President and Chief Operating Officer Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

Here is the list. I don't know if I recall seeing one where all the related companies are so close to one another. Some notes
Lexus/Toyota/Scion near tops
Porsche doing well again
Benz is high as Ford/Lincoln
Hyundai beat Honda and Acura
Audi/VW still subpar
Nissan always under average but what the hell happened to Infiniti?
Chrysler products pulling up the rear

At the bottom of the survey it says Land Rover and Saab were included in the survey but not ranked due to small sample size.

Impressed by Porsche and Cadillac
