Boxer Engines

It's also nice to know that the boxer engine made number 2. I bought my daughter a Forester and my son an Impeza when they started college. They kept them when they graduated. Happy to see they have reliable cars!
As for me, I'm happy with #100.

Or any Chevrolets at all, for that matter. I wonder what market(s) this list represents. It certainly isn't the North American market.

I'm pretty sure this list is from the UK, as it lists seversl Vauxhalls (a GM clone aka Opel & Holden here in Australia). Vauxhall is a brand no longer marketed outside of the UK, thank goodness.

I can't find any merit in a list the puts the Boxster behind a Neon in any category, other than lameness.

As I understand it, these are simply based on claims data per car covered. I don't believe it is subjective.

But, I can't guarantee it.

This list is crap...there are no GM, Government Motor cars on the top 100 list. Notify Obama so he can retort this shame on National News. Also, to start Bill GM 101...every family must one GM product for at least 10 years.

What the hell...did I see a YOGO on the list.

They obviously did not poll out-of-warranty 90's model Boxster owners. What a crock.

Per Warranty Direct website

The top 100 cars list posted below is from 2007, covering previous 10 years. This year's list, Boxster did not make the cut.

The results are from cars on the road in the U.K.
