It odd that Skoda is higher than Audi, VW and Seat as they are one company VAG and use the same parts. Tho' I do see Seat higher than Audi well thank the Lord I didn,t buy an Audi. What I think is the main cause of breakdowns is all these bl**dy sensors you have on an engine. I do know the VAG engines that use siemens electrics are less reliable than the Bosch ones. Oriental cars have always been reliable and also their motorbikes.
