Lexus has scored the second best ranking in the annual Consumer Reports Reliability Survey, coming in just behind parent company Toyota. This is the first time in five years that Lexus has not been the top ranked brand.
All Lexus models have received top reliability marks. The survey is considered one of the top reliability guides offered in North America, with the results compiled from data of more than 640,000 vehicles.
Beyond the overall brand rankings, the Lexus ES was named the third most reliable vehicle available, followed by the Lexus GS at fourth and the Lexus IS at seventh.
(As a point of comparison, Audi was 4th overall, BMW came in at 5th, and Mercedes finished at 14th.)
