Good to see.

If they want to stay that way they should say away from all the electronic gizmos and nanny's. Those are always the first things to break.

All of GM, Toyota and Ford are in top 10. No Honda, Nissan, M-B, BMW or Chysler brands... hmm

Re: Top 10 Vehicle Brands Requiring Fewest Component Replacement Parts

Another nice thing about American cars is that the parts are WAY cheaper than the ones used on the foreign cars.

I know a guy who spent $5K replacing the clutch on his BMW. The parts alone were $2500. The same job would only cost about $1K in parts on my Z06 (I'm not sure what the labor would be).

As Ford can tell you with its disastrous infotainment system, had they not tried to be the first one out of the gate its IQS and VDS rating would have remained strong.
