So last year Lexus was number one in Consumer Reports’ annual ‘predicted reliability’ rankings while Toyota was number 2. But this year Lexus has dropped from number one to number 5, while Toyota takes the number one spot from its own premium brand. Even Toyota’s Scion ranked number 3 on the list while Honda took number 2. What’s going on over at Lexus?
On the other hand, Nissan jumped from number 20 last year to number 8 this year, and for those of you who care about American cars, the only top ranked American brand was Ford’s Mercury brand that took number 10.
