Reliable transportation is an investment.Typically when we purchase a new car we hope it's dependable and lasts long-term. Due to this, we tend to see a vehicle as an investment.

Consumer Reports' Annual Auto Survey
We predict that these cars will give owners fewer problems than their competitors, based on data collected on 640,000 vehicles. 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.
