GM And Ford Prove To Be More Reliable

images-40.jpgAccording to Consumer Reports, a new study shows that both GM and Ford have reliability ratings that show “real progress”, unfortunately Chrysler didn’t get the same good news.

The analysis drew on vehicle testing, as well as consumer surveys, to discover that Ford now has several vehicles that compare to the ratings of some foreign rivals like Honda and Toyota.  According to the report, Ford is “in the front of the class”.  GM also made some gains, however a few of its cars continue to have problems with reliability.

The study says that improvements in quality and better designs are the main reasons for the big improvement over the last few years, however it also credits “forward-thinking leadership,” which could surprise some people after watching the Big Three criticized by the government, press and consumers alike.

Chrysler, unfortunately, continues to lag behind, with a vehicle lineup that Consumer Reports claims is “very disappointing with little promise on the horizon.”  In other words, you might want to have a good roadside assistance program if you’re thinking of purchasing a Chrysler.
