I'd buy Toyota or Subara again without giving it a second thought.
I expect Sony to do exactly what it's adverstised to do, probably for a lot longer than its competitors. Same with KitchenAid. I'd buy Dell again --we have 3 very stable computers (2 laptops, one desktop) from them. Much, much better than the Acers my mom and I should never have purchased.
I used to trust Maytag, but that was back in the olden days when they made the washer and dryer my parents still use that are 37 years old... unlike mine that died after only 22. I expect the current models to last 8 or 10, tops.
Panasonic used to be a good brand, now (like Fruit of the Loom and some others) it's a label that anyone can licence to use on their products, which adds instability to the quality.
I don't pay much attention to clothing brands --I tend to shop second hand and look for quality garments and sewing skill, which is not necessarily present in big name brands.
