    Do note... not all of those are the same models we get here. The Genesis, for one, has a different V6 versus here. Direct injection versus good old port-injection EFI.

    The Explorer was bound to get on that list due to the MyFordTouch brouhaha and the radiator fan recall. Shame. Note that they specified the V6 4WD only, not the Ecoboost... which, if you think about it, is kind of surprising, given how high-tech the Ecoboost is.

    Doesn't really help if they don't specify why those cars are at the bottom of the list. "Reliability" could mean anything from a freezing touchscreen and stereo system (MFT, again) to engine problems to squeaky brakes (yes, that counts as a "problem" on the CR survey).

    -

    For some of those other cars, there are well-known pump issues with GDI engines when exposed to ethanol or dirty gasoline. The list itself is not very helpful without context on which particular variants have major issues and what those major issues are.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Trying to find out the least reliable brand new car is like a professor getting your grades from a dartboard
    The one to trust are the long term reliability reviews according to warranty costs, but its still an unknown science
