ADAC Statistics Praise BMW and MINI Models

In the latest ADAC breakdown statistics, MINI emerged as the most reliable model in the small car class, while the BMW X3 and BMW X5 secured first and second places in the off-roader class, BMW announced today. Moreover, the BMW 1 Series, BMW 3 Series and BMW 5 Series range also earned top marks for an extremely low breakdown rate.

The results released by ADAC are based on analysis of over two million call-outs handled by the ADAC road patrol staff, popularly known as “yellow angels”, in 2009. Following this analysis, ADAC found out the BMW and MINI models are among the vehicles providing the least work for the “yellow angels”.

“Regardless of the vehicle segment, the probability of suffering a breakdown in a BMW or MINI is exceptionally small – proof that the high quality standards of the BMW Group apply across all its model series,”
BMW says in a statement.

According to ADAC, MINI models registered between 2005 and 2009 are given the top mark “very good”. The BMW 1 Series, BMW 3 Series and BMW 5 Series also stand out with their consistent level of reliability. All the model series achieve the top marks for cars registered between 2006 and 2009. The BMW X3 and BMW X5 – which have been included in the statistics since 2004 and 2007 respectively – have also been awarded the top rating “very good” without exception.

“The company’s premium claim spans the entire product creation process and includes vehicle development and material selection, as well as manufacturing processes across the BMW Group’s global production network. This gives customers the peace of mind that, by purchasing a BMW or MINI they will be able to enjoy not only exceptional driving pleasure, but also unbeatable quality and reliability,”
the statement concludes.
