Pretty much every year Land Rover is at the very bottom of the J.D. Power list of number of defects per 100K vehicles with sometimes nearly double the problems of the next lowest performer. Funny as I see tons of them around being driven by the country club types, you know the ones that won't buy "American" cars because of their perceived lack of quality. I find it incredibly ironic.

I didn't have real good reliability with my 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse back then. (Shifting linkage issues) Everything else I've bought has been decent. The Eclipse model has finally been discontinued.

They didn't need to fake a commercial.

I voted for Saab. Self explanatory.

My Maxima and Juke have worked great. So I know Nissan did a good job with them.

People get cut out of cars every day, does that mean they are tougher than others? My point was they make them out to be stronger than they actually are.. They will not stand up to being crushed by a monster truck....And that is lying to buyers.

Saturn definitely needs to be on this poll haha that's who I'd vote for. Got some advice from a mechanic once. "When it turns over 100,000 miles, park it on the side of the road and walk away"

Hope she is okay. Airbags typically won't deploy if she got rear ended unless it slammed her into the car in front of her. Seat belt thing might be an issue but doubtful as well.

Hyundai owns about 32% of Kia, and is listed as the parent company of Hyundai/Kia Group. After sitting in both at a recent auto show, they get my vote as both felt cheap and doors felt like tin cans when closing.
