Mazda joins Audi, Subaru, and others at the top of Consumer Reports’ Reliability Survey
One of the biggest selling points to buying a brand-new car is the peace of mind that comes with knowing the vehicle will be a reliable transport for years to come. That being said, not all cars are created equal when it comes to needing repairs down the line. As cars, trucks, and SUVs continue to add features like infotainment systems, navigation, and other technologies, more things can go wrong over the lifespan of a vehicle. Reliability can greatly impact overall customer satisfaction and brand loyalty, not to mention the car’s resale value.
Over time, trends develop and these trends can be analyzed in order to accurately predict which auto manufacturers outperform their competitors in terms of reliability. The latest large-scale survey conducted by Consumer Reports collected detailed information on more than 740,000 vehicles. By analyzing this data, researchers were able to study the odds of a vehicle needing service outside of regular maintenance.
