  1. I don't understand how it can be. Volvo and Audi are at the bottom of all reliability lists but the costs of ownership are low? If the just look at the new cars then the survey sucks.

  2. Bogus! "five-year" my @ss. XC60 was new last year and it already won. Nissan Cube? MKZ? X6? Venza? Half of these cars have just left the dealerships. C'mon - this study is a total and paid-for crap.

  3. Hey JKD, my Volvos have been reliable and reasonable to maintain. And unlike the Japanese cars (you pick among the brands - from the bland and boring to the even more bland and boring) Volvo's style and material workmanship hold up over five years a heck of a lot better. Hondas feel like an old appliance gone bad after 100k, but Volvos are just getting warmed up. You will also note that many Volvos do well in Consumer Reports and some models are recommended by the publication, which is an impressive benchmark.

  4. Chevy Volt????!!!!! Is this list paid for by the Government? Just the up front cost makes it a non-starter. In 5 years, who knows with GM's poor reliability. Could be a bigger white elephant than the EV-1

  6. I'll bet Toyota had to stuff a lot of plain brown envelopes with cash for this "accolade".

  7. To dagr382:
    And I think you are one of the owners of "out of job yet?" stickers, that drive a GM made in Korea, instead a Toyota made in the US or Canada. Like it or not Toyota vehicles are relable and easy to mantain.
