Wow! Thats amazing. Its still not a bad thing for Lexus, having taken the top spot in other segments.
How's this going to alter the TATA image worldwide,I'm not sure. If the Nano gets similar recognition, it could turn out to be a big boost for the TATA stable.

Did anyone notice the cars that give the maximum number of problems after 3 years?

Here is another perspective on the above study:

Buick Earns Highest Dependability Marks - BusinessWeek

It says that Buick brand has been in the top 10 for the past decade. However, `...Buyer demographics can affect ratings as well. The average age for buyers of Buick and the Mercury Grand Marquis is above 60. And older consumers, history shows, do not grade their cars as tough as younger car owners'.

Thats true.I'm yet to come across a relatively young person driving a Buick. If all,its been a rental car. Buick cars seem to cater to the elderly,in general.

Buick owners generally are, Closer to the century mark and Drive @ 10 mph. This car ain't gonna breakdown nowhere. I can see where the reliability comes from
