Alltop, all the top stories

New Reliable

Results are out for Consumer Reports’ car-reliability study. It questioned 1.3 million owners of 2006 vehicles about such things as mechanical problems, squeaks and rattles, convenience of the cupholder, etc.

Ta-dah! Ford Fusion and Mercury Milan were rated just as reliable as top-sellers Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. The Lincoln Zephyr came in second to the Lexus ES350.

Said David Champion, senior director of Consumer Reports, “If Fusion is going to be the turnaround car Ford has been looking for, the reliability has to continue into the future–get one right and do the same for all future vehicles in its repertoire.”

They aren’t flying off the shelves yet, but Ford hopes it’s found a few winners.
