8 out of 10 either toyota or honda so have to agree with the list, but honda or toyata minivans are better than pontiac vibe 1000 times over.

The Germans have taken a solid beating. Again. Instead of launching a plethora of new products and their thousands of variants, German car companies(esp. Mercedes) should focus on a few select models and on improving their reliability. It was said that the CLS had brought back Mercedes to its old quality levels, but it still remains a low scorer in the reliability surveys..

very true sajo, i seriously think that mercedes reliability will never return to where it was but that won't prevent me from buying on(if i could afford ofcourse).
i dont trust these "predicted reliability" surveys very much.
it seems they take an example of 100 cars and go from there. what they are doing is verifying the stereotypes.
cr is for those that buy cars as an apppliance, to take you from a to b.
