November 1, 2012

Consumer Reports released its annual auto reliablity survey, which predicts reliablity for 2013 models.

Toyota and its subsidiaries, Scion and Lexus finished in the top spots. Check out the full rankings below and be sure to use the CarWoo Deal Finder when you're ready to negotiate your car purchase.
