BMW is the automobile brand with the fewest defects and the highest level of reliability. This is the result of an analysis of some 5 million general inspections carried out by the Gesellschaft für Technische Überwachung (GTÜ). In recognition of this achievement, the Stuttgart-based inspection organisation has now awarded BMW the “GTÜ Quality Trophy 2014”.
Practical data demonstrates a high level of reliability.
The quality prize is awarded purely on the basis of objective, practical data. GTÜ evaluates the technical condition of automobiles which are one to three years old and four to five years old. The BMW 1 Series and the BMW 5 Series achieved particularly impressive results here. In the Sports Car/Convertible category, the BMW Z4 finished at the top of the ranking with the best rating for the first general inspection. All results appear in the annually published GTÜ used car guide and “Auto Zeitung”.
At the award ceremony, GTÜ Managing Director Rainer de Biasi praised the excellent technical quality of the automobiles as well as the good service provided. The award was received on behalf of BMW by Dr. Herbert Diess, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, Development.
The “GTÜ Quality Trophy” was established by GTÜ and “Auto Zeitung” to recognise outstanding quality and reliability in automobiles. The award was presented at the 27th Auto Trophy held in the Hamburg Cruise Center in Altona and is one of the most important of its kind.
