Nop. It is because the J-K cars work well and don't break.
It is very easy for manufacturers to get on the top ten/twenty list... build good product. It is that simple.
My car prior to my X3 was a Honda Accord and nothing broke or failed in 8+ years and 230K kms... nothing
Add gas, change the oil and brakes and the car never failed.
If BMW builds cars that way they'd make the list too.
