When it comes to the automotive industry and finding a new vehicle, reliability is a major component of the equation and Consumer Reports is a premier resource for car shoppers who are looking for a reliable new vehicle. Within the scope of Consumer Reports, the publication’s Annual Auto Reliability Survey provides exceptional research, summarizing the reliability of your favorite automotive brands. Among those automakers, the Toyota brand tops the Consumer reports reliability survey alongside Lexus. Take a look at how Toyota has achieved this elite automotive status and which Toyota models lead the way.
What Makes the Toyota Brand So Reliable?
This comprehensive reliability survey bases its information on more than 740,000 vehicles owned by subscribers and examines the reliability of the past three model years of that particular vehicle, creating a predicted reliability score. Many vehicles are plagued by unreliable and outdated infotainment systems as well as new transmissions that do not perform up to par. The survey itself ranks each brand based on the average of the predicted reliability scores with a given range of reliability scores. In these rankings, Toyota has ranked second behind only Lexus, which is the luxury division of Toyota.
