Lemonade please -Part 3

Honda Motor Company

Honda was the second-best brand on the list, with only one lemon per approximately 3 Million cars. Luxury brand Acura, however, made one lemon per 516,436 cars.

Background Info: After nearly being purchased by Mitsubishi in the 1990’s due to a hostile takeover attempt, Honda quickly entered the SUV and Minivan market, stole American auto buyer’s hearts in the process, and haven’t looked back yet.

Toyota Motor Corporation

Toyota built their legacy on longevity, and based on this data, 2016 was no different. they did a whopping 10 times better than the industry average, making one lemon per 11 Million vehicles. 2nd place Honda was 8 million cars behind.



Background Info: Toyota is credited with having the most efficient assembly line of any industry and builds 61% of its fleet in the United States – That’s more than Buick, Chrysler and Lincoln.
