The Most Reliable Car Brands
Consumer Reports released its 2015 Reliability Study this week. The annual study takes a look at the reliability of new vehicles based on three years worth of problems reported by consumers, and takes into account vehicle performance, safety, and comfort.
Below is how 28 brands ranked in this year's reliability study, with top honors going to Lexus, Toyota and Audi. Consumer Reports omitted Jaguar, Land Rover, Mitsubishi, Scion, Smart and Tesla from this year's study due to a lack of data. At the bottom of the list were Ram, Jeep, and FIAT.
If you're considering purchasing a vehicle, I recommend TrueCar No Haggle and Edmunds Price Promise to see the lowest prices being offered in your area.
