Are These the Top 10 Most Reliable Cars Under $25k?

Consumer Reports

Hey, Detroit's Big Three: why didn't any of you make this list?

So you want to buy a new car. Perhaps it’s your first new car ever. Or you just want something that’s both new and affordable. And you also want it to be reliable. Affordable, reliable, and that new car smell. What a combo. Consumer Reports has just compiled a list of the top 10 cars that carry a base MSRP of no more than $25,000 and have passed the publication’s rigid reliability tests. For the most part no one should be all that surprised by the results.

But take note of this (for better or worse): not one selection is represented by any of Detroit’s Big Three. Scion xB - $16,970 Honda Civic – $18,290 Toyota Prius C – $19,080 Subaru Forester (non-turbo) – $22,195 Volkswagen Passat 1.8T – $21,120 Mazda6 – $21,190 Honda Civic Si – $18,290 Subaru XV Crosstrek – $21,995 Toyota Yaris – $14,845 Toyota Camry – $22,970
