Each year, Consumer Reports issues a comprehensive study that tracks the reliability of all vehicles sold in the United States covering brand new models to models up to ten years old.

Known as the Consumer Reports Reliability Survey, the information that they gather and organize is always a welcome resource to consumers looking to make an educated decision when purchasing a new or used vehicle.
