However, there are some major shakeups for 2014, with Acura plunging eight spots from third in 2013 to 11th this year, and Mazda replaces it on the lowest step of the podium. Honda and Audi round out the top five. This year’s list includes six Japanese brands in the top 10, two Europeans, one America and one Korean. Acura isn’t the only one taking a tumble, though.

Instead, pesky problems with infotainment systems are taking a series toll on the rankings.
