Most Trusted Cars in 2018: Consumer Reports
On Wednesday, Consumer Reports released its annual list of the 10 most reliable cars. The publication created the list by analyzing the questionnaire of more than 500,000 cars and used the answers to predict which cars will create the smallest problems for their owners.
Toyota placed seven cars in the list, more than any other car manufacturer, and took the top spot with its Lexus GX SUV. Consumer Reports said that GX was quick and quiet for an SUV, offering a steady ride and a comfortable cabin.
Toyota and Lexus were also the top two brands on the Consumer Reports list of the most reliable car brands in the sixth consecutive year. Lexus took the top spot with an average reliability score of 78 out of 1[ads1]00, and Toyota ranked second with a reliability score of 76.
"Lexus is an excellent example of how technologically advanced luxury cars can also be highly reliable," Consumer Reports said.
No car from US car manufacturers made the most reliable driver list when the other three spots were taken by Mazda, Kia and Honda. US car manufacturers took six of the 10 places on the Consumer Reports list of the least reliable cars, reflecting the poor performance of American car manufacturers on the publication's list of the most trusted brands. US car manufacturers accounted for nine of the 10 least trusted brands, and none were ranked in the top 15.
These are the 10 most reliable cars, according to Consumer Reports.
