5 Most Reliable German Cars

A closer look at 5 of the most reliable recent German cars on the market

Numerous attributes draw drivers to German cars: high performance, world-class luxury, thoughtful design and styling, or an upscale and top-notch driving experience. New and used-car shoppers often seek out a BMW, Audi, Porsche, Volkswagen or Mercedes-Benz as their means of accessing a taste of the motoring high-life. Whether you’re after an affordable and economical family sedan, a high-performance sports car, or anything in between, there’s a German car that’s perfect for you.

5 most reliable German cars sounds a bit strange to this German.
There are only 5 German car makers total, if you exclude US owned Ford Germany, and GM owned Opel.
