And the most and least reliable car makers by brand are…

Consumer Reports just came up with their ranking of the most and least reliable car makers and the news is not good for the American brands—— six American brands rank dead last in Consumer Reports' survey including Chrysler which is at the bottom of the list.

At the other end of the lost Toyota's Scion division ranked #1 on the list.

On the positive note Ford is moving up the rankings with several models that scored exceptionally well.

"Leading the way for Ford were the 4-cylinder versions of the Fusion
and its sibling, the Mercury Milan, which were judged to be more
reliable than two old standbys, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. The
Lincoln MKZ, a luxury version of the Fusion, also bests the Lexus ES
and the Acura TL.

In fact, 90 percent of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles in the
survey were found to have average or better-than-average predicted
reliability. But all was not perfect in Blue Oval-land. The
all-wheel-drive versions of the Lincoln MKS, MKX and MKZ all scored
below average in reliability. And all-wheel-drive versions of the Ford
Edge and Fusion were not as reliable as their front-wheel-drive
versions either," according to the New York Times.
