Toyota and Mazda top the list with (3) models each. *These lists are questionable so I take them with a grain of salt.

Even minor changes can drop reliability scores. Can you truly rate the reliability of a current year model? There is no statistical analysis of the 2020 model. New and cheaper suppliers could be used. Corners cut. You have no idea how reliable the 2020 version will really be.

The list is based off their subscribers performing surveys on their 2018 vehicles. CX-9 is interesting because I need occasional 7 seats in a vehicle when I replace my 07 MDX with 196k.

Doesn't Toyota own a portion of Mazda and dont the Japanese auto makers use many of the same manufacturers for parts like sensors...?

That list is so yawn inducing. I get it.. simple is reliable.. but they're all just appliance cars.

What about electric cars? Our company has tested drivetrain subcomponents for Tesla and the units look great after 300K. Except for batteries, these cars may be in their golden age before they try to find ways to make them cheaper.
