IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 21, 2007 – Mazda vehicles have claimed the top place in one of the world’s largest- ever reports on vehicle reliability. Nearly 92 percent of the Mazda cars studied, including the MX-5 Miata, aged between three and nine years old, suffered no mechanical failure of any type – outperforming all other brands.
The report, which was issued by independent automotive extended-warranty specialists, Warranty Direct, looked at the reliability of more than 450,000 vehicles from 33 manufacturers, across the United States and United Kingdom. The resulting ‘Reliability League Table’ shows the number of failures reported for every 100 vehicles covered by Warranty Direct’s policies. Mazda was rated number one with a failure rate of just 8.04 percent of vehicles aged between three and nine years old.
“The exceptional build-quality and long-term reliability of Mazda vehicles is something we have been proud of for quite some time,” said Jim O’Sullivan, President and CEO, Mazda North American Operations. “The findings of this recent report reinforce what we’ve believed all along – that Mazda reliability is not just very good, it’s the best. These results are proof that Mazda builds stylish and exciting vehicles without sacrificing quality or reliability.”

Thanks. I clipped the article from the Ford Intranet website. Ford owns a portion of Mazda (you already know that) and they publish many articles about Mazda.

Great Find man, my bro who always talked about Honda and Toyota reliability, was somewhat surprised. MAzda is owned by Ford you are right about that, but it is built in Japan "better quality". When i bought it i wanted to make sure it was made in Japan, and 95% parts are from Japan, so that way i was certain that it will me reliable car.
