Opel Insignia, the Car with the Fewest Flaws

We are used to having one type of organization or another releasing all sorts of charts and numbers which point to what a given vehicle excels at. Whether we are talking about Euro NCAP crash tests or KBB sales charts, all these numbers present the world with only the good side in a vehicle.

There is an organization, however, that starts from the assumption that all man-made creations, including cars, are fundamentally flawed. Their analysis does not take into account the good sides and attributes of a vehicle, but the bad ones.

The organization's name is DEKRA and this year it releases a Faults Report. In these reports, cars are ranked in accordance with how many flaws they have. This year, the model with the least flaws is the Insignia model built by Opel.

“I am delighted to be able to congratulate Opel for achieving the best individual ranking in the overall evaluation for the second year in a row!"  said Wolfgang Linsenmaier, DEKRA director. "At 96.1 percent fault-free, the Opel Insignia achieved the best result across all vehicle classes.”

DEKRA found that the model scored the best based on its analysis on data from 15 million inspections made on 230 different models. The car received 96.1 percent fault-free index and the title for the year. It is the second consecutive achievement of this type for Opel, whose Corsa was last year's crown jewel.

"This fantastic result is further proof that the quality not only of the Insignia but of our whole model portfolio is top class,” said Alain Visser, Opel/Vauxhall Marketing, Sales & Aftersales vice presindent. “We promise our customers top quality and underline this with a life-long guarantee!”
