Most Reliable New Cars for 2013

November 1, 2012

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

The big surprise? The Ford brand dropped 7 places to finish nearly in last place. Only Jaguar ranked worse. However, much of the decline was due to bugs in the MyFord Touch infotainment system.

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.
