Complaints in this type of report can be ANYTHING, I dont like the way the runflats sound, (that counts as a complaint).

I dont like the design of the cupholders, thats also a complaint.

It really annoys me that the news media reports these things and people (sheep) are like wow that car is at the top of some list I know nothing about I should buy one.

I am not saying that BMW should be at the top because it shouldnt, but the day the JD Powers intial quality report means ANYTHING, is the day hell freezes over.

Read this statement again:

Owners are asked 228 questions on issues as varied as braking and handling to seat comfort and gas mileage. They reported improving quality in all areas except audio, entertainment and navigation systems.
