Mechanics hate: Toyota Yaris

Consumer Reports dependability rating: 80 per cent above averageThe Toyota Yaris is the best-performing ride in Consumer Reports' 2010 Annual Dependability Survey, the bible of reliability. According to Consumer Reports, the Yaris has one-fifth the problems of the average car in its sampling. Kenny Tran of tuning specialists Jotech in Garland, Texas, credits the tight tolerances Toyota engineers put into their engines as the reason. "They are well-built, with many overengineered heavy-duty parts," Tran says, "like using a timing chain versus a timing belt."Compare: Toyota Yaris vs. Ford Fiesta vs. Kia Rio
