OK - Chevy Malibu = #1 ?? confused
Puzzling, since I see about 1 per month around here. Maybe the 'long-term reliability' as defined includes those vehicles that remain unsold on the dealers lots, thus not breaking down and affecting the averages...? spineyes

And you know what brought down the reliability rating of the Celica, right? Those people who misshifted the car then had their mistake fixed for free under warranty. angry I remember the 00 Celica had lower marks on engine/tranny than the 01s, yet they were the exact same parts, except the late 00s and the 01s had stiffer shifter springs. thumbsdown

that's probably why toyota said "mother-fucker...we're losing a lot of money just claiming all these mis-shifts for people who can't drive...this is what we get for building a high revving engine...next time we'll make a car that has a camry engine in it..."...LOL rofl

I know Consumer Reoprts prides itself on being completely independent and unbiased from the product manufacturers, accepting no advertising $$ to stay afloat.

Does JD Power work off the same premise? confused

If so...then alrighty then. then.

Do you think that the reason why the celica is #83 is due to its problematic short throw shifter, and when people accidentally bang the shifter into the wrong gear slot because they're narrow?? I think that might be a source.

I would tend to believe J. D. Power is less of a reliable source of information compared to Consumer Reports, as in:

Long Term Reliability Rankings

1. Consumer Reports
2. J. D. Power


Long-Term Dependability

1. Consumer Reports
2. J. D. Power

Yeah, but nowhere near as much as Toyota. Some guy is on his 5th GT engine under warranty. wtf And Honda/Acura didn't change the shifter springs, then change the shifter pattern, then lower the rev limiter, all in hopes of keeping people from misshifting again (didn't work, either rolleyes ).
