Consumer Reports 2010 reliability scores have now been published, and it shows the same thing that previous reports have done. So we know that Asian vehicles top the list once again, but it is nice to see that American cars have now started to improve on things.
We were all surprised to learn that the likes of Toyota and Lexus are near the top of the most reliable cars in 2010 — seems that apart from the host of recalls, they were still very reliable. This is also the case with Honda and Acura, which has also suffered from a number of recalls.
Kia, Hyundai, Nissan and Subaru also featured high up in the report, but these were not huge improvements over the previous year. However, U.S. automakers seem to have stepped it up a gear. GM increased its reliability rating by almost 70 percent average or better, with Ford averaging a 90 percent rating.
Some of the worst reliably cars were Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, which is certainly shocking, as they are some of the most expensive. Visit Autoblog to read the “Consumer Reports’ 2010 Annual Car Reliability Survey” press release.
