Honda has earned Consumer Reports’ top rating for the third straight year. Consumer Reports’ said that Honda makes “the best all-around vehicles for the American drivers.” Honda was followed by Subaru, Toyota and Mazda. Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Volkswagen and BMW tied for fifth place.
How did our American automakers rank? Consumer Reports said that FoMoCo and GM vehicles improved from last year but continue to rank with Chrysler “at the back of the class.” The publication said that no Chrysler, Dodge or Jeep vehicle made the “recommended” list. In fact they were all rated “poor performing products” with “sinking reliability results.”
But if you’re still looking to buy America, Consumer Reports said that the Ford Flex, F-150, Chevy Malibu and the Cadillac CTS “rank near the top of their classes.”
