Automotive Press Association Consumers Reports Luncheon

(DETROIT) -- Jake Fisher, Director of Automotive Testing at Consumer Reports' Auto Test Center announced the findings of its closely watched annual Auto Reliability Survey to the Automotive Press Association Monday, October 28 at the Detroit Athletic Club. Survey data, drawn from Consumer Reports' 8 million magazine and online subscribers, allows the organization to track the reliability of vehicles up to 10-years old--and forecast how the new 2014 models will hold up.


The summary of results shows:
1. Audi is more reliable than most Japanese brands
2. Toyota and Subaru teamed up to make an unreliable car
3. The Honda Accord V6 and Nissan Altima are unreliable
4. The Tesla model is reliable
5. Toyota Camry, RAV4, Prius V and Audi A4 are no longer recommended due to poor IIHS small overlap performance
6. Audio and Infotainment problems dominate reliability problems for new cars
