Subaru Selected as Best Automaker by Consumer Reports
The report card shows which manufacturers are building the best all-around models, and this year's winner was Subaru.
Recently redesigned models such as the Impreza, Legacy, and Outback contributed to the strong test results. Rounding out the top 5 were Mazda, Toyota, Honda, and Nissan.
Ford fell to 10th place, from 5th last year - mostly due to problems with their MyFord Touch infotainment system (which I don't think is completely fair).
Check out the graph below showing how each manufacturer did on the report card:
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
