Consumer Reports releases annual reliability rankings for auto brands

When comparing reliability scores across all brands, Toyota and Lexus remained in the lead, according to the latest study from Consumer Reports. Toyota and Lexus are ranked first and second, respectively, continuing the company’s long history of providing outstanding dependability across its entire product line.

Hybrid cars and medium and large sedans were found to be among the most reliable vehicles. Despite being among the most coveted and in-demand cars EVs and full-size pickups had the lowest average dependability scores.

Top hybrid vehicles include the 2023 Toyota Corolla, 2023 Ford Maverick, and 2023 Lexus NX. Hybrids are now being considered by more than one in three potential purchasers (36%) compared to 29% in 2019.

“With today’s inflated car prices, people are keeping their vehicles longer than ever,” said Jake Fisher, senior director of automotive testing at Consumer Reports, in a release. “A hybrid can provide years of trouble-free miles, and they are a good defense against rising fuel prices.”

Overall, when examining reliability rankings for all brands, Toyota and Lexus remained in the lead. Being ranked in the top two positions builds on the brand’s history of providing great reliability across its entire product line.
