I have an old Toyota Rav. I bought it brand new in 2003. I have put in so many miles. I just changed my brakes. Otherwise, aside from regular car maintenance including tires, it has been a great vehicle. And that’s that I’ve been hit three times! So when I see a list of worst or best car brands I quickly check for mine. Happy to report, my little beat up Toyota made the Best Brand list. Yes!

I’ve been thinking about getting a new car but hesitate but if you’re in the market for a new set of wheels, “Consumer Reports” is here to make sure you don’t by a Lemon.

The magazine has come out with their annual list of the best and worst car brands out there, and based on the report you’re going to want to stay far away from Fiat. The car brand gets a score of just 39 out of 100, which keeps them at the bottom of the barrel just like last year. Fiat is so bad they score a full nine points less than Jeep, which is in second place, with a 48. According to the mag, Fiat earns its low scores because it isn’t reliable, it doesn’t drive well, it’s cramped and more.

“Consumer Reports” Ten Worst Car Brands

  1. Fiat
  2. Jeep
  3. Land Rover
  4. Alfa Romeo
  5. Mitsubishi
  6. Jaguar
  7. GMC
  8. Dodge
  9. Ram
  10. Mini

So, what car should you be getting if you want reliability? Well, topping the list this year is Hyundai’s new Genesis luxury division, with a score of 81.

“Consumer Reports” Ten Best Car Brands

  1. Genesis
  2. Audi
  3. BMW
  4. Lexus
  5. Porsche
  6. Kia
  7. Subaru
  8. Tesla
  9. Honda
  10. Toyota

It’s great to see this list because it helps us tremendously when shopping for a vehicle. But let’s be honest, we get swept by the vehicle. Like Mini’s are so cute! RAM trucks are so awesome looking! And so forth and so on, we shop on how good we look in the car don’t we? Thanks for trying to help us though CR. ~grace
