You may want to avoid these automakers if you’re shopping for a new car. Consumer Reports has released its 2018 Brand Report Card, ranking automakers based on an overall score that is determined by vehicle testing, predicted reliability, and owner satisfaction. Owner feedback was provided on more than 640,000 cars to determine predicted reliability and satisfaction from J.D. Power’s Annual Auto Survey.
In order to be included in the rankings, an automaker must have at least two vehicles that were tested by Consumer Reports. That means this year, Maserati and Smart lacked sufficient data to be ranked.

Dodge is the best looking brand out there lmao I love my charger 100 000 miles and nothing besides oil x’s
Obviously this consumer is bs they are getting paid by ford
Last time I checked #2 truck sales were Ram behind ford and sales are climbing that’s why dodge dropped viper so they can focus on truck , year later ford dropped all sedan car to save money and invest in trucks because they were scared that ram trucks are creeping right after them.... and u can’t beat the new ram truck best looking truck out there as right now
Not having owned or driven any of these I can't say with certainty, but this report bears out what's heard elsewhere. Anytime I hear of a single source ragging on something or someone i take it with a grain of salt. But when it's repeated over and over by many different reviewers one tends to believe. I wouldn't buy any of these.
Most are purchased for the name brand not the quality. FCA has become the garbage pit for reliability. The new Challenger is nice looking but with Chrysler's the overall suspension turns to crap after about 30,000 miles.
And if you see Jaguar and Range Rover, then you’ll see Ford... sorry to say it. But they were the makers of Land Rover and Jaguar. They were all owned under the same brand which was ford. Like GM owning Cadillac, Chevy, and GMC etc.
All I can say is that my brother's dodge minivan I borrowed from him the other day has 200+K on it and the engine and transmission still feel solid and capable! Yes there are some broken bits on it but it just works overall and has been a great vehicle for him.
This is CRAZY !! Back in the 60's Chrysler Corporation made the best-engineered cars and trucks in America !! So much so, that they pioneered the first 5 year/50,000 mile powertrain warranty !! Plymouth, Dodge, DeSoto, Chrysler, Imperial, and Dodge Trucks. WHAT HAPPENED ??
I have a 2013 dodge charger rt.
Nothing but problems ,cam crank. Sensor, cruise controller, alt. Trunk does not open ,brakes locking up and not reliceing.ect. eco sucks.
Fit and finish bad. Dodge Dealer over charges for things I do not want checked.
Very good and accurate video. Noted few Japanese, no Korean or German autos. But then, I will never buy another Toyota because of poor dealer and Toyota factory rep in my area. Consumer Reports is GR8 too.
Been driving a 2015 Challenger since new. I've had problems, but luckily while still under warranty (all 4 wheel speed sensors, and an ECU that lost its mind). It comes off the powertrain warranty in 3000 miles. Let's just say I'm somewhat nervous about what the future holds.
I own two late model Jaguars, a 2011 XF-R sedan and a 2014 F-Type convertible. The reliability has been excellent and the owner satisfaction is over the top. Just how does Consumer Reports come up with its road test scores?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but consumer reports predictability is the dumbest thing. Here is why: Chevrolet as a brand had a good predictability score since 2012, and their models have issues that appear before the 100,000 mile mark- 2012 Chevrolet Malibu 2.4 liter timing chain failure at 60,000 miles is a great example. Almost always, the predictions of Conumer Reports are sh!+
Definitely have something against FCA! They have cars all companies try to imitate! Ram, dodge, and keep! Especially jeep! The wrangler holds its value like no other! Is it cause it’s unreliable? Don’t think so you haters!!!
I am surprised that BMW isn't on that list. I had a 328x drive 3 series. It was the worst car that I have owned. It left me sit twice. The last trip to the shop cost me 4000 dollars. Crank sensor and fuel regulator new fuel tank new valve cover and gasket. I don't understand how this company can stay in business!
Tesla should be on the list too as they are some of the biggest money pit cars that America has ever built. Once those cars are out of warranty they will bankrupt you in massive electrical repair bills. One Tesla owner went through $24,000 worth drive units on his Tesla S Model as all 4 of them failed, plus 9 Electronic door handles that cost $800-$1,000 each and two battery replacements $9,000 each. Another Tesla owner had to replace the 17 imch screen Media control unit that cost $3,800 and another $5,000 in brakes and the list goes on. Watch Rich Rebuilds as he will tell you the rest of the true cost of owning an out of warranty Tesla. https://youtu.be/nq5c4jGR2gM
....And now.... For the 10 worst vacuums.
I score CR the WORST at everything they write about. They're terrible. If you want to know about cars, go seek out car experts and not Consumer Reports. Geeeez.
ALL GM VEHICLES ARE REALLY RELIABLE WE HAVE GMC SIERRA AND ITS SO GOOD (edit) Fca isn't a bad company but definitely room for improvement and more vehicles. Chrysler *cough cough* Fiat is only bad Fca car.
RAM trucks? Seriously!?! How old were the models tested I'd 2018? 20 yrs old? This _'Consumer'_ Report seems to fly in the face of real world testing. Without exception, everyone that I know who owns a RAM truck is extremely satisfied with them; and they aren't complaining about any problematic issues. That's a good 30 odd RAM truck owners in my area. Did they all purchase the only good models ever built?
William Reed Actually, Buick. General Motors has THREE luxury brands, leaving Chevrolet to be a standard brand. Pontiac got dropped because sales were slumping. What is the need of having a lot of luxury brands to begin with? Back then, GM had WAY TOO MANY brands competing against each other. But they usually sell you whatever car that generally fits your budget. Saturn was GM's version of Toyota and Saab was GM's version of Volvo.
But here's the killer: GMC is on the list, so a good chance Chevy, Buick, and Cadillac would have similar issues since they share the same platform.
