ADAC Breakdown Statistics 2004: A Triple Victory for Audi in Terms of Reliability
INGOLSTADT, Germany - If you are at the wheel of an Audi A2, an Audi A6 or an Audi A4 Cabriolet, you are driving the most reliable vehicles in their respective classes. This is the conclusion of the ADAC's breakdown statistics, which the automobile club has now published. Audi is therefore the only German manufacturer to take first place in the statistics for three categories.
The Audi A6 encountered the least problems in the highly prestigious field of the premium segment. This put the A6/S6 model series ahead of all its competitors - including the German competition in the premium segment - for the third time in a row in the chase for the reliability Oscar. "The A6 demonstrates that the Ingolstadt quality offensive is actually bearing considerable fruit," confirms the ADAC.
In the "Small-Car Class" the A2 left all its competitors standing - and not only all the German cars but also the Japanese, which have had a firm hold on the top spots in terms of reliability for many years.
For the first time, the A4 Cabriolet scored a victory in the sports car category, sending its competitors in a field dominated by German products away to lick their wounds. Second place in the medium-sized category was taken by the A4 model series, making it the best-placed German car.
