Autobild every year evaluates top 20 major auto brands based on the next key criterias: The details are shown below:


1.            GFK report from Germany (Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung)

Representative report on quality and safety created by GFK, an Association for Research of Customer Needs, based on 9278 interviews with users of vehicles.

A key question in the survey:

How do you assess the quality of the brand of vehicle you own from 1 to 10?

2.            Service interventions

What problems had the vehicle? How many vehicles have had the same problem? Do the manufacturers respond? Whether customers were treated fairly? Whether the manufacturer was transparent and understandable in solving the problem?

devices (safety aspect). 7,500,000 checks were made to 208 vehicle models

100.000 km of hard testing was made to every single vehicle. The road conditions and drivers were changing during the test drives. The tests were made on the worst roads in Europe. At the end of the test, vehicles are dismantled to the last part.

This study is guided by the following questions:

Which part of the car failed? How much were the repair costs?

5.            Regular mail and e-mail communication

About 11,000 letters and e-mails were considered from readers of AUTO BILD who have problems with their vehicles. Main topics: product defects and problems in the official service.
