Japanese cars are some of the most reliable in the world. Every so often, you’ll hear a fellow driver gush about how their Japanese car rarely breaks down, has good mileage, hasn’t gone through any major repairs throughout its lifespan, etc.
One main reason for this is because Japanese car manufacturers are very strict when it comes to the quality control of the vehicles they manufacture. Before a vehicle leaves the factory, it undergoes numerous rigid performance and testing evaluations, making sure it complies with stringent Japanese and international standards. If you buy a car from a well-known Japanese manufacturer, you can expect it to be of good service to you for many years to come.
Due to their topnotch quality, Japanese cars have high resale value. It’s not uncommon to find a reliable Japanese car to have as much as four previous owners in its lifetime and still be in good operating condition. In a 2015 Consumer Reports survey, Japanese brands ranked highly in terms of reliability. The top 5 spots were filled by Japanese carmakers, Lexus, Toyota, Mazda, Audi, and Subaru.
If you’re looking for a Japanese car to purchase, you can easily look for one at a local car dealer in your area, where you are free to select your ideal car from a wide variety of brands and models.
