Consumer Reports has released its list of the top 10 cars it predicts will give new owners fewer problems than its competitors. Based on data collected on 640,000 vehicles, Consumer Reports has released its Annual Reliability Survey, which studies 17 trouble areas to determine a Predicted Reliability Score for a vehicle.
Trouble areas range from broken interior trim to major issues like out-of-warranty transmission repairs, and the Predicted Reliability Score is combined with data collected from the publication’s track testing, as well as owner-satisfaction survey results and safety data to determine an overall score.
