Consumer Reports' massive annual survey reveals the models that shine for reliability

Consumer Reports has no financial relationship with advertisers on this site.

Purchasing a car is a long-term investment, with the expectation that the car will provide dependable transportation for the long haul. But as Consumer Reports' surveys show, not all cars can fulfill that promise.

Based on our latest Annual Auto Survey, these models are the 10 most reliable cars today. We predict that these cars will give owners fewer problems than their competitors, based on data collected on 420,000 vehicles. (For more details, check our Guide to Car Reliability.)

Our survey takes a deep dive into the numerous things that can go wrong with a vehicle.

We study 17 trouble areas, from nuisances—such as squeaky brakes and broken interior trim—to major bummers, like out-of-warranty transmission repairs or trouble with four-wheel-drive systems. We weight the severity of each type of problem to create a Predicted Reliability Score for each vehicle. (That score is then combined with data collected from our track testing, as well as our owner-satisfaction survey results and safety data, to calculate each test vehicle’s Overall Score.)

Based on that analysis, these models are the most reliable.

They are presented in rank order, starting with the most reliable, with the reliability scores.
