Warranty Direct, a U.K. provider of direct consumer warranties has studied its claims data to compile a list of the manufacturers with the most reliable engines - and Audi, BMW and Volkswagen all finished in the bottom 10 out of a total 36 makers.

Fellow Japanese rival Toyota came in second while Mercedes managed to outperform its fellow German brands with a respectable third-place finish.

audi, bmw, volkswagen, engine and 5 more...

The Germans were never the most reliable to begin with, they were perceived as good (solid), but good does not mean reliable. Although not the most reliable, Germans/Europeans makes the best cars on earth in terms of Comfort, driving pleasure and most important, quality thats why they were good. The only German exception is Mercedes which excelled in all the categories.
