I agree with Mustang Life and others, that say all brands have issues. For example, the Mazda CX5 has had 4 recalls. Mazda also issued a recall covering every 2014-2016 Mazda CX-5 crossover. In the US, this amounts to nearly 265,000 vehicles. They also issued a stop-sale on every unsold CX-5 at the dealership at the time of the recall.
Brand loyalty is one thing, but looking at facts is another. Unless you are a proponent of "alternative facts."
Refer to the NHTSA website for recalls and complaints by brand and model.
Knowing the trie facts is very important, BUT these days it seems like nobody has the time or care to look up facts. Majority of people spew off on the first BS line or article they read and run with it. haha pshh EVERY car brand including the top german brands have there issues. Hell I know someone who bought a $200K+ 911 Turbo S and in the first few months of owning some of the exterior trim starting popping off. That is what dealer warranties are for... Right? We live in a world where quality is becoming impossible to find. Perfection is very rare today...
