Nice to know that logan scores very high compared to the segment average. Goes to prove that low price doesn't necessarily mean low quality.

Am not convinced of this Quality Rating!

For example: In Premium Compact category, Swift is rated the Best and Getz the Worst!
I thought it should be other way round!
And why the hell was Palio missed out for this Quality Study?

Optra & Corolla are very old models & selling low numbers. Civic is new & it sells more than double the other 2 put together. Obviously slightly higher number for Civic.

This rating is based on "Problems reported/100 vehicles".
It does not say anything about build quality or looks etc., etc.,

Good show by Honda:
No 1 in Midsize,
No 1 in SUV,
No 3 in Premium Midsize

Why didn't they rate Accord?

Fully agree!

But, I am sure Swift has more problems reported than Getz!

Nice to see Spark, Estilo and WagonR at the top. Spark although is new, but wagonR, even after years in the market, still is one of the most reliable small cars around.

Even I am somehow not convinced withe th findings. Although I am MUL supporter, Swift can cretainly be not called a better product Qualitywise when compares to a Getz.

How do they get these figures? If its from Buyers then these figures are possible
