Not true and a bit general because the makes within the VAG group vary
wildly. Where a reliability score of 118 is average and the lower the
reliability score the better, Audi score 135.5, VW 81.74, Skoda 49.98 and
Seat 94.76. So while Audi are in the bottom 10 most unreliable along with
Porsche, Jeep, Land rover, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Jaguar, Saab, MG and
Mercedes the other 3 VAG makes are above average with Skoda in the top 10!

That I would agree with.
