Consumer reports rates two Toyota models below average in reliability:
The Toyota Camry V6 and the Toyota Tundra V8 4WD.

Ratings based on owner feedback.

"Consumer Reports will no longer recommend any new or redesigned Toyota-built models without reliability data on a specific design," the publication said in a statement. "Previously, new and redesigned models were recommended because of the automaker's excellent track record."


So...

"The best car" and "The truck that's changing it all" are not so great afterall.

Gee, I coulda told you that a year ago. :lol:

I beg to differ. They just got caught up in a good track record and failed to make sure Toyota owns up to it. I think that's a pretty hefty mistake to make.

It's one thing to look at the new CTS and think that CTS-V will be pimp, but a whole other to talk about reliability without solid info.

CR likes to assume a lot. Which is why the "expert reviews" they do stick on MSN autos. They reviewed a cobalt in like 05 and the same score sticks with the 08 model. Which is pretty lame, tbh. And the "experts" aren't even experts, they give trucks low scores because they ride like trucks. And they give the Jeep Wrangler like a 13 because..well..it's an off-road vehicle.

It don't surprise me. I know my Toyota was junk. Just got through fixing a transmission on a Lexus RX 300 that has several more issues that I will be fixing soon and a Lexus ES 300 that I have to do some window regulator repairs amongst other things. The owner of both is sick of these lexus's and is planning on trading them in on a GMC and probably a caddy CTS.

My favorite automotive quote:

A Toyota product with 100,000 miles needs a timing belt replacement that can cost as much as $1400.
But a General Motors product with 100,000 miles is still under warranty!

:D

That's ridiculous. Most Toyota's have used timing chains since 2003. Furthermore, until last year, Toyota's warranties have STOMPED GMs. (7/70, vs GMs 3/36). Let's not forget that small blocks, for awhile, had timing chains/gears that were MOSTLY PLASTIC! It would have cost me MORE to fix a 305 that stripped it's crank gear than it cost me to replace it with a refurb 350.

Actually Toyota powertrain warranties are 5/60 except Lexus which is 6/70.
Still less than GM's now.

In the past Toyota's warranties were better, but in the present they are not.

And some Toyotas still use timing belts, so my point is still valid. ;)
