Click here for the details: Dependability Ratings | J.D. Power

Basically, MB finishes behind typical competitors BMW and Lexus (and Cadillac). Acura is a tie.

True, but I'm more likely to believe J.D. Powers than Consumers Reports, at least with respect to automobiles.

That report become so hot topic on RV forum, that moderators had to close it.
Some quotes from there:

"You are misreading JD Powers. They rate "initial quality only." That means in the first 90 days!! who cares about the first 90 days or anytime when covered 100% on warranty. When you compare the Buick to a Lexus after 36K miles or 60K miles there is no comparison. The American manufacturers have always make good vehicle for the first 50k miles but pieces of junk for miles after that. "

"PawPawFor2 I recently rented an Impala like yours. Did you happen to notice -
1. When you turn the steering wheel, the radio station changes because your hands touch the on-wheel channel up buttons - 4 drivers confirmed that - the buttons border on the rim
3. Leather very thin and discolored after 10,000 miles
4. Unbelievably cheapo radio "

"i would like to see a report on the same vehicles, after 200000 miles on them. "

"Consumer Reports owner surveys based on over 1 million responses this year -
Lexus - almost entirely perfect for every model
Buick - just slightly above average."

FOR BUICK, GOOD NAMES GO BAD: What do the Buick Regal, Buick LeSabre, Buick Park Avenue, and Buick Rainier have in common, besides being Buicks? They all scored among the top three in their class in J.D. Power and Associates survey of vehicle dependability for 2007. And all are out of production.
