Iconic brands Toyota, Weber, Bridgestone among Aussies' most trusted
What do a Weber barbecue, a cold Corona, a Four'n Twenty pie, a Bosch drill and a Toyota 4WD all have in common?
They're all the 'most trusted' brands in their categories, according to a survey by Reader's Digest Australia. The annual survey aims to direct consumers to the brands they can trust most.
While the survey covers dozens of categories across all aspects of home and living, such as food, drink, appliances, shops, etc., it also includes some categories aimed specifically at the eldery, such as funeral insurance (most trusted: Suncorp), incontinence products (Tena) and anti-aeging skincare (Nivea).
Bridgestone is a repeat winner, having been named the most trustworthy tyre brand in Australia for the third year in a row.
"Being the leading tyre retailer is a position we take very seriously, so to uphold this award three years in a row is a significant achievement which recognises the ongoing efforts of our people to provide the best tyres and service in the country," Bridgestone Australia and New Zealand managing director Andrew Moffatt said.
