The world's number one automaker suffers a sharp slide in brand value, according to a new survey.

With a record number of recalls, a grand jury investigation and a plague of lawsuits facing it, Toyota has seen a sharp drop in its ranking in the annual Best Global Brands study.

Conducted by the brand consultancy Interbrand, the latest survey found Toyota has dropped from 8th to 11th – with an even more significant loss in its actual brand value. By that measure, Toyota lost 16% of its value, according to the annual survey – more than other damaged brands such as Dell and Citi Services lost since the last Interbrand report.

“Although the Toyota recall caused the brand to lose 16% of its brand value, its long-standing reputation for reliability, efficiency and innovation helped it weather the crisis better than expected,” Interbrand noted.
