In the battle of the ‘big three’, General Motors is proving to have the most reliable vehicles.
In Consumer Reports‘ latest predicted reliability results from its annual Auto Survey, the most reliable American-made cars were ranked in 10 different segments, with General Motors’ vehicles taking top honors in seven segments.
Chevrolet was represented in multiple categories, with its Sonic model being ranked as America’s most reliable small car. The Volt was the winner in the fuel-efficient hatchbacks category, while the Traverse gets the nod in the large SUV class. In the midsized SUVs segment, the Chevrolet Equinox was ranked most reliable (along with the GMC Terrain), and the Chevrolet Avalanche is considered the most reliable truck made in America.
In the luxury SUV class, the Buick Enclave was ranked most reliable, while the Cadillac CTS scored big for the compact sport sedan class. Representing Chrysler was its 300 model in the upscale cars category, and Ford had its sole winner in the sporty cars category with its Mustang V6.
“We’re often asked how the domestics’ reliability stacks up, especially with some people wanting to specifically buy American,” Consumer Reports said in a statement. “The results show that there are some very reliable U.S.-branded models, but they also remind of potential risks with buying first-year models.”
