The week, Consumer Reports announced the results of its 2017 Annual Reliability Survey.

Once again, Lexus and its mass-market sibling Toyota topped the list as the most reliable brands in the America. The list includes cars ranging from luxury sedans to economy hybrids to rugged off-roaders.

“Based on our 2016 Annual Auto Survey, these models are the 10 most reliable cars today,” Consumer Reports wrote. “We predict these cars will give owners fewer problems than their competitors, based on data collected on over half a million vehicles.”

Most of the cars featured on the list have been on sale for several years and as a result, their manufacturers have had the time to work out many of its reliability gremlins.

According to this year’s survey, the most common issues plaguing cars these days involve advanced infotainment systems and overly complex transmissions.
