All I have to say is 2004 Mercury Sable with 302,000 miles and still strong. All I have done is the obvious torque converter (these cars/Taurus were infamous for that). I do NOT drive it easy but I do change the oil fairly regular. It is about 60% highway mileage, and 25% stop and go. If your car is under 50,000 DO NOT talk about reliability. I love my American made car!
Second Ford to get past 200,000 miles.
Camaro has never been a dependable car, because it's designed for Piston Heads who don't care about maintenances, gas mileage, cornering ride, comfort ! All they care about is: How FAST their butt moves in 1st Gear! More GM fantasy.....
Boy was this article ever soaking wet! The Chevy truck is NOT a better choice than the F-150 Ford. The Ranger isn't even made any more, the Camaros were listed, but not the Mustangs? The Ford cars have much better reliability factor than the GM cars. The Prius is dependable alright, you can depend on it going in for repairs on a regular basis.
Methinks this article was paid for by Gm /Toyota.
I have a 2005 Toyota Sienna. It has had 7 RECALLS on it. It is the worst car I have ever owned. Why don't you ask real people what they think. The van only has 27,000 miles on it. The power roof has also failed and they won't cover the repair because it is out of time warranty. They offered me $1,000 toward the repair which costs $2800.00. The roof leaks and won't close properly. I had never even opened the roof and it started to leak. When I tried to open it, it was frozen shut.They checked it out at the dealers expense and found that the cables that pull the roof open were twisted in manufacturing, but would cover it all because it was out of time warranty.
This van is total garbage.
You would not believe all of the parts that have been replaced in this thing.
I have recently received another recall-check. If you are having a problem with your power doors not opening, bring it in for a check. If nothing is wrong, it costs you $50 for a service charge. Another warranty extension came in extending certain engine problems to 150,000 miles or sometime in 2015.
This is a handicap van which was purchased for reliability. It is a nightmare.
