The Most and Least Reliable Cars
Consumer Reports recently released their picks for the most and least reliable vehicles available on the market right now. Vehicles considered the most reliable include the Lexus GX, Toyota Prius C, and Mazda MX-5 Miata, while those on the least reliable list include the Volvo S90 and Cadillac ATS.
Note that Consumer Reports "reliability" mostly now refers to things like infotainment systems and other electronics not working as expected, so take these with a grain of salt. The full lists are below.
