Wow, GMC Acadia? They must have made an amazing improvement in that vehicle in the last 10 years then because the one I rented back then was really cheap - interior, plastic everywhere... It was ok for what it was: gargantuan SUV, with all the stereotypical characteristics one would expect from a Canyonero. Well, I suppose it didn't actually smell like a steak...
What I have noticed in all modern cars is that the luxury veneer is getting thin... Hyundai I would blame for much of this: loading luxury features into mediocre vehicles on the cheap. But they have slowly been improving in many respects while the competition has more or less had to cheapen up to compete.
That said, Mini. BMW, Audi were #6,7,8 and Porsche #2. VW and Merc still above the industry average. Volvo, Land Rover and Jag are all owned by Asian interests now, so that may impact how things are built? So it is kind of unfair to say the euro brands are behind. Mazda, Honda, Acura, Nissan, and Mitsu are all below industry average, so the headline could more accurately read "Japanese cars are less reliable".
