According to the latest survey released by Consumer Reports, Japanese and Korean automakers produce the most reliable vehicles. However, Ford is catching up very quickly although it has yet to break the top teir. Toyota’s Scion brand came in with the highest average overall reliability. The Scion xD had the best predicted reliability of any car in the survey with 80 percent fewer problems than the average car.
There were no American automakers in the top ten although Ford’s Lincoln came in at number 11 right behind Kia. The F-250 pickup and Mercury Moutaineer were said to bring down the Ford Group’s overall performance rating.
“Excluding those, Ford’s reliability is now on par with good Japanese automakers,” Consumer Reports said.
