Consumer Reports: the podium belongs to Japanese brands

Toyota took the third place – scoring 71 points in this year’s survey caused the Japanese manufacturer to drop from the second place from the year before.

The Consumer Reports ranking does not lack a series of spectacular ups and downs. Which brands are particularly pleased with? The Mini can boast the greatest success.

A year earlier, however, it was placed 13 places further! Infiniti can also boast a golden leap. The Japanese manufacturer of luxury cars entered fourth place with a score of 69 points. A year earlier, the company was ranked 10th.

German cars? Failure rate above average

There are also automotive companies where tears will shed after the publication of the Consumer Reports report. The Ram was by far the worst. The American manufacturer of pick-ups and SUVs received just 40 points from customers this year. This means a drop from 9th to 21st place for him – by as much as 12 points. The representatives of GMC or Jeep also have no reasons for optimism. Because even though these brands have “only” moved down five places, they are ranked 22nd and 26th, respectively. Hyundai also did not do well. The result of 56 points means 11th place for him – four points lower than last year.

The Consumer Reports report brings a number of surprises, especially for brands with German origin. Reason? Although Porsche has been shining in the rankings prepared by the ADAC for years, it is becoming only a mediocre overseas! The brand received only 52 points. And this is only the first of the bad news. Such a result means a drop by two places and taking place number 13. Audi (47 points) retained last year’s position, but it is still 15th. BMW, in turn, fell by 4 places, which makes it a distant 17th place. Volkswagen was worse. It appears in 24 positions out of 28 available.

The worst performers were Lincoln, Tesla and … electric SUVs!

Which cars of the worst brands did the Consumer Reports ranking? The previously mentioned Jeep is third from the bottom. The second place on the podium counted from the end went to … Tesla. The US electric car maker scored just 25 points. And although the result is extremely poor (over three times lower than the leader), it turns out to be stable. A year ago, Tesla also took the penultimate place. Lincoln closes the list. The vehicles of this brand received only 18 points from Consumer Reports.

The list prepared by the American organization talks primarily about brands. While discussing the results, the representatives of Consumer Reports also talked about the models. This year, by far the least failures were … compact hybrids and plug-in hybrids. Not only Toyota Prius stood out, but also the Honda Insight. On the other hand, the so-called “tails” played … electric SUVs. And this is a really big surprise! In models like the Audi e-tron and Tesla Model X, however, not a relatively simple drive system breaks down, but the on-board electronics, which is mainly used as luxury gadgets.
