Lexus Porsche and Lincoln?

Three of those vehicles ranked most dependable.
Here's a link.

If reliability was my number one priority, I would not be driving a BMW.

My toaster is super reliable and drives just like a Lexus also - doesn't mean I want to drive it, but that is what some people buy a car for - I would rather have a car that drives well and live with a few issues here and there. That being said, my wife has had 3 Lexus SUV's and now drives an X5 and the X5 has been the most reliable of all of them!

I'm glad BMW doesn't appear once in that article. I know we aren't the most reliable cars, but glad we aren't the worst.

Haha whenever I see a Range Rover Sport (and those hideous Evoques), I just wonder how they ended up selecting that car. They must have read no reviews and just hate Germany.

The new Lexus is might change alot of people's opinions here. Reviews I've read say its pretty close to handling like a BMW. I mean a small tradeoff in handling would be greatly worth it for better reliability on my book. Right now there is no comparison, but let's say there was a 5% difference, would the Lexus be alot better?
