For 2011, after 7,779,312 million inspections, the Toyota Prius and Porsche 911 have taken golden trophies in two different classes.
One of the most closely watched quality indicators in Europe and especially in Germany is the annual TÜV-Report.
Once a year, the TÜV compiles its TÜV-Report, using the actual results of the check. Each car undergoes a thorough and invasive physical. Fail the physical, and it’s back to the shop. Fail again: No inspection sticker, get that POS off the road.
“Especially impressive: The complex hybrid technology of the Toyota Prius works perfectly. In second place, also a Toyota: The Auris usually masters the first TÜV check without fail.”
