I reckon this survey is flawed somehow..cant put my finger on why, just gut feel. A lot of the owners on rs246.com get warranty direct cover just so they can claim for upgrades after a year of track days or fast road driving. RS Audi's and Porsche cars tend to be driven hard and bits inevitably go on them..warranty direct cover for an RS6 (53 plate) is around £1200 per year - drive an RS6 hard and the Dynamic Ride Control will go, and warranty direct cover the cost of £3,500 worth of replacements and not only that, they will pay for much improved aftermarket ones if you ask. It seems like the reason Porsche and Audi are so high is because of owners doing the maths with upgrades v's warranty cost - LR/Alfa and Jeep no idea..
Top performing car on that index is a Suzuki Vitara - cant believe anyone has ever thrashed one hence low claims / high reliability.
