Customer Reviews Good app that could be so much more by Zy1yZ This app provides you with consumer reports ratings and videos and details – all this information is a great aid when shopping for a new or old car.The app could do better than merely presenting information. Filtering the list of models by various criteria important to me would help me make choices. It would be nice to mark favorite models, display them in a list, and provide a side-by-side comparison. I would like to add my own notes and ratings. Finally it would help if each model had links to comparable cars. I suggest that consumer reports analyze how people shop and improve this to support them. Needs refining: Unable to Search, Filter by txgsu43 Consumer Reports produces great automobile reviews, but this application makes it difficult to find information. Used car buyers are s.o.l. You’ve got to find the new car, then filter to the car type. Is that model discontinued? Guess you’re going to the mobile site! You cannot search and filter the reviews. So, if you are just looking for reliable cars or even the “CR Recommended” or “CR Best Buy’s,” you are out of luck. Again, the used car information is so neutered it is useless. Nothing like what I remembered by Retro Fan Literally threw away $2.99 just to find out the information I was looking for is the same as can be had for free from Edmunds. I thought this app would have new and used car reviews? So far, every one I’ve looked up said “not enough data”. I read from others that the site has more info. If that is the case, why is this app even available if it only regurgitates publicly available info such as stats? Very disappointed with Consumer Reports. Not at all like the magazines I used to subscribe to.

For all the love and praise lavished upon Model S, Consumer Reports took an almost instant dislike to the Model X electric SUV. Calling the 2016 edition “fast and flawed” in a headline, the agency’s testers called out weaknesses in the falcon-wing door design and general reliability. As it has with so many all-new models, Consumer Reports suggested avoiding the ’16 Model X on the used market and waiting for the automaker to work out the kinks.

If you’re looking for a cool car, today’s Challenger is almost as appealing as cars from the classic era. However, you will have to sacrifice big on reliability if you choose a model from earlier this decade. According to Consumer Reports, Challengers from 2015 are among the least reliable cars around due to problems with body finish and power equipment. An earlier study pointed to the 2013 and 2014 model years as well.

This is especially true for models just two or three years old. Not only is the price lower than a comparable new car’s, but continuing ownership expenses such as collision insurance and taxes are lower, and a two- or three-year-old used vehicle has already taken its biggest depreciation hit. In addition, buying used is a way to get a nicer car than you’d be able to afford new. Whether you are looking for a certified pre-owned or a private sale, or are buying from a dealer or neighbor, Consumer Reports can help lead you through the used car buying experience. This guide provides the essential information you need to choose a used car with a good reliability history, sell your old car, and get the best price. If you are in the market for a new car, see our advice in the new car buying guide.

Ford’s reliability issues were by no means limited to the brand’s small cars. The 2012 Expedition, 2016 Escape, and 2010 Taurus scored well below the average in Consumer Reports rankings over the years. Additionally, Ford’s world-beating F-Series line ran into a few snags in Super Duty (F-250) models from 2008, 2010, and 2014. Fuel system, transmission, powertrain, and brake troubles particularly plagued models from 2008 and 2010. They should be avoided on the used market.

After 2011, the Audi A4 showed steady improvement in reliability ratings, especially in the engine and electrical system. Prior to these upgrades, A4 was a troubled car. Consumer Reports called out the 2009 and 2010 editions as used cars to avoid, but ’07 and ’08 are right there with them. In the current decade, steer clear of the 2014 model.

Every GMC vehicle in existence turned up on the list of unreliable cars of the past decade. GMC Acadia SUVs from model years 2007 to 2014 took the dishonor of being worst of the bunch. Consumer Reports said to avoid all eight editions of this truck on the used car market. Major transmission problems, drivetrain issues, and climate system malfunctions plagued Acadia for most of the decade in question.

The Honda Fit was picked as one of Consumer Reports’ best used cars to buy, the only one named in the subcompact category. The magazine says “this reliable, cleverly designed hatchback offers easy cabin access and an amazing amount of storage room for such a small car.”

Overall, Ford had nine models show up among the worst for reliability, but its small cars had the worst performance of any Blue Oval segment. Ford Fiesta from model years 2011 to 2014 stood out in particular. Its primary issues centered on the transmission, body integrity, and audio system. Ford compacts scored far below average in Consumer Reports rankings at the start of the decade.
