Mercedes, BMW and Audi are no longer top-10 car brands

Recommended Posts

Grass is greener syndrome... conti is their local car there, plus they own cars for much longer. So Asian reliability is regarded highly. Here in Singapore most conti owners wont stick to their car for more than a few years

I can't bieve it, I save up my entire life just to buy a COE Mercedes and now the paradigm have shifted? I have to save up again to buy a COE Kia? 😪😪

Anyway, I believe it is the audience and the way the survey is conducted. It is like I ask a YP what he think is a cheap and affordable sport car, next I say Ferrari and Lambo are no longer the dream  sport cars.

@Ct3833 You made a right decision on getting a Merc ,For me i don't believe car journalist much,  what thy wrote can be dubious information to sway motorists faith and confidence, buy what U believe in and set for a life enjoyment, My point is: How many of us MCF ever owned a old COE or Vintage merc, taking tender loving care of their only love beside their wifey. You earned it now enjoy the ride. [drivingcar]

What?! Just went I am saving hard for my 1st BMW, they are now not the top 3? Nevermind, let hope they will price their car even cheaper so that I can shorten my waiting (saving) time to get one. This is positive thinking right? :D:D

Yah, I concur with your view about audiences and the way the survey was conducted, as well as the context. For reliability, some survey even include battery and other wear and tear items, OMG... 

BTW, it is weird to breakdown the categories into premium and non-premium, yet stating that the top 3 German have lost their popularity...

Brand loyalty won't change over night unless something too screw up.  If any, the shift will change progressively over time. And to say  that three brands all gone in one survey suddenly, the only constant is the survey itself, that means the survey is screw up. I am not protecting any brands but the results is too skewed to be trusted.

It won't matter where these german cars are ranked, they will still be more desirable than many of the "top 10" brands. I remember years ago when the local papers did a car of the year award once a year, there was a year where a japanese car (not lexus or GTR, NSX that kind just  <100k type) "beat" a 911 to be the car of the year, does this make any sense? After that article came out, guess how many people threw away their 911's and bought the japanese car....zero would be a good guess
