For the sixth straight year, Lexus was on top, the Japanese brand finishing alongside Porsche with the lowest number of problems reported by owners.

The South Korean manufacturer jumped into 6th place this year – the brand’s highest-ever ranking in the study.

While Toyota was the highest ranking non-premium brand and the individual model with the happiest owners was also from the same family – the Toyota Camry.

In total, Toyota received top placing in 10 out of 18 segments, General Motors was next best with four.
