Jessica Anderson of and her bias list is typical. She has zero credibility as she has little if any experience in the automotive world, don`t believe me then Google her.
Jessica Anderson mentions and I quote " Toyota (Camry) have a longstanding reputation for reliability"...remember that the Toyota Camay is one of many reasons the Japanese giant as fallen and one of the most recalled vehicles on the planet folks.
My advice to Ms. Anderson, go find a cubical over at Consumer Reports, the culture at CR is perfect for a gal like you.
I agree that you cannot take one auto rating organization's recommendations as too solid alone, but when they all say pretty much the same thing, ignoring it only means that it is you that most likely does not know what you are blogging about when it comes to autos. ALL domestic owners state the same thing as you, which makes it pretty obvious why you do not like these facts.
I buy/sell on a professional level and have to agree with groups like CR, Kiplinger, KBB, Edmunds, Car and Driver, for the most part because like them, I have to crunch the numbers of cost of ownership instead of letting my personal preferences cloud my judgment. Domestics have closed the gap somewhat over the years but they still do not stack up when you look at the numbers.
Know why the Chevy is on the list?? Not because of it's quality, but because of it's massive depreciation rate. I buy Suburbans at 18-24 mos old because they are 40% off retail at that age. That's a disgrace. My personal Japanese SUV, at 7 years old, is still holding at 50% of it's MSRP. That's a value!!
