Default Toyota Prius, Porsche 911 Are Germany's Most Reliable Cars

Out in Germany, a new vehicle must be inspected after three years by the TÜV, similar to America's state-level emissions and inspection process (albeit much more rigorous). After that, residents of Germany then have to get their vehicles inspected every two years and each visit involves an extremely thorough inspection of your vehicle.

Failing the inspection means you have to get it fixed immediately. Fail it again and you won't receive an inspection sticker and your vehicle will not be permitted to be driven on the road. So with all these vehicles coming in and out for inspections every year, there's got to be a ton of good 'ol data waiting to be reported right? Of course, it's called the TÜV-Report and it won't be published until December 16th. But of course we have the Internet and those dates mean nothin' to us!

Between July 2010 and June 2011 an overwhelming 7,779,312 cars were inspected and The Truth About Cars decided to publish the results from all the new cars that got their first inspection after three years, and the results from 10-11 year old cars. At the top of the new car list was Toyota's Prius with 1.9-percent complaints, while tied for second place was Toyota's Auris and Mazda's 2. Tied for fourth (and really just rounding out the top five) was Porsche's Boxster/Cayman and VW's Golf Plus. And at the very bottom of the new car list? Say hello to Dacia's Logan. This is the second time in a row the Prius has taken the top spot.
