Some Ford Cars Are Reliable, Actually Worth Buying

Several Ford cars are among the world’s most reliable vehicles, according to the latest annual car reliability survey from Consumer Reports.

The survey found that the Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan both had higher reliability ratings than the Japanese-made Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, ranking only below the Prius in the family sedan category. The Ford Flex SUV was also highly ranked.

As for the rest of Detroit, fewer than half of GM’s models received average reliability scores, although the Chevy Malibu was rated better than average, and the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 were recommended. Chrysler also didn’t do so hot, with over a third of their cars being rated much worse than average.

Overall, the least reliable vehicle was the Volkswagen Touareg, which was 27 times more likely to have problems than the most reliable vehicle, the Honda Insight.
