Toyota Most Reliable Brand in the 2011 TÜV Report

Toyota has achieved 17 Top 10 ratings in the 2011 Auto Bild TÜV Report, with eight models in the 5 different vehicle age categories (2-3, 4-5, 6-7, 8-9 and 10-11 year old). This makes it the most successful brand listed. With only eight and 10 Top 10 ratings respectively, the second and third placed brands trail by a significant margin, reinforcing the exemplary quality standards of Toyota vehicles.
The full hybrid, high-technology pioneer, the Prius, proved the most reliable car in its class. With only 2.2% of all vehicles tested in the main inspection revealing any defect whatsoever, Prius secured first place with the lowest defect rate amongst two to three year old vehicles. This success has been achieved in the context of some eight million TÜV inspections over the past 12 months, providing the strongest evidence yet of the quality, durability and reliability of Prius and its Hybrid Synergy Drive® powertrain.
Toyota  Prius

                                                                                     Toyota  Auris

Close behind the Prius, the Toyota Auris was awarded second place in the same category, with a defect rate of just 2.3%. In the Brakes, Suspension, Lights and Environment inspection categories, neither Prius nor Auris demonstrated any significant weaknesses. And they both recorded defect levels far below the TÜV report’s 5.5% average.

Toyota corolla Verso

The same applies to the Corolla Verso. Having won first place in the 2009 TÜV report for two to three year old cars, the Verso secured a 2011 win for cars in the four to five year old class, with a defect rate of only 4.2%.

Toyota Avensis

An impressive fourth place went to the Toyota Avensis. With an average defect rate of 10.4% for vehicles in this age category, the Avensis rated just 5.0%. Older Avensis models also displayed above-average reliability. TÜV discovered defects in only 7.6% of the six to seven year old vehicles tested, corresponding to fifth place.
