Be careful with CR. If they give you details, fine. However, their vehicle reliability studies badly violate the rules of taking statistical survey's. (Think "Dewey wins".) Their categories are way too summarized and tell you little about reliability. For example, a car with repeated bulb socket problems will show up the same as one with major wiring harness issues. A car with minor engine problems (maybe bad coils) will look as bad as one with major mechanical problems. I will admit that a car with a lot of black circles in C/R is less reliable than one with lots of red circles. Bob
