I know people like to talk smack about CR's reliability rankings, even though they basically track exactly with JD Power and AutoPacific.
- Toyota/Lexus, Hyundai/Kia and Mazda build reliable cars
- FIAT-Chrysler, Tesla and VW...don't
- Some Ford, GM and Nissan models are reliable. Others, not so much.
- Honda/Acura and Subaru are no longer the paragons of reliability they once were.
The Civic in particular was called out for all sorts of issues, ranging from infotainment to failing dashboard clusters to transmission and turbo woes.
