Leading German automotive magazine Auto Bild has awarded Hyundai the top position in the Auto Bild Quality Report 2010. Beating all other manufacturers, including Toyota and renowned German brands BMW and Audi, Hyundai took the prestigious honor based on a comprehensive analysis of reliability, long-term quality and customer satisfaction. As one of the worlds most respected industry quality surveys, the Auto Bild Quality Report 2010 award further demonstrates the gains Hyundai has made in consistently improving the quality of its products, services and customer support.

Auto Bild’s annual list evaluates seven key criteria, each weighted equally, and feedback from more than 9,000 vehicle owners. The criteria include: manufacturer warranty, recall information, and data from Germany’s Technische berwachung Verein (TV) report, which covers 7.5 million vehicle inspections.

Hyundai is a leader in vehicle quality around the world and topping BMW and Audi in their domestic market is a testament to Hyundais global commitment to quality, said John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. Achieving industry-leading quality is Hyundais number one goal and in the U.S. we look forward to improving upon two straight years of being a top three non-premium brand in J.D.
