Lexus Owns the Podium
Lexus did not just top this list of worry-free cars by it took slots one, two and three. Yup, Lexus hit the trifecta. Just for good measure, the folks at Lexus also took slot 13. So, of the 15 most worry free models, Lexus makes roughly a quarter.

The number one most worry-free on the list is the Lexus RX 450. Yes, a hybrid. So much for any questions we may have had about the reliability of cars with amazing mileage. The RX 350 is also the number 3 car on the list, so it is pretty safe to say that the RX is a car (or crossover more accurately) you can trust.

Number two on the list is the Lexus ES 350. This is Lexus most popular model and what we like about this list is that it represents real cars sold in very large numbers, not some Sunday show car models that are not complained about by their owners who never drive them. These are workaday cars, and they don’t break.
