Subaru top brand according to Consumer Reports

Consumer Reports issues 2022 Brand Report — Subaru top brand

According to a recent article in the Detroit Free Press, Consumer Reports 2022 Brand Report Card shows Subaru taking the top spot for reliability followed by Mazda, BMW, Honda, Lexus, Audi, Porsche, Mini, Toyota and Infiniti.

Buick ranked 11th
Chrysler ranked 13th
Dodge ranked 16th
Tesla ranked 23rd
Jeep Gladiator picked ranked the lowest of all brands

Consumer Reports states that their ranking includes factors like reliability, ownership experience, testing, surveys and crash test performance. Reliability refers to whether something has failed or broken on the vehicle and does not include issues that owners don’t like. Vehicle recalls are included but only if the owner has actually experienced the issue noted in the recall.

Tesla dropped seven spots from last year’s survey, more than any other brand. The drop was due mainly to lower road test scores related to the difficulty using the yoke steering “wheel.”
