When our clients receive a successful settlement from their lemon law claim, one of the first questions they ask is: “How do I avoid getting a lemon again?” When considering another vehicle, the following trustworthy resources can help.

Consumer Reports is a well-known nonprofit organization that tests a wide range of consumer products. The organization also provides a review of the products’ quality. One of the most-watched releases each year is the organization’s report on automobile reliability. Every year, Consumer Reports gathers information on the most popular vehicle models and ranks them from the most reliable to least reliable. When you are considering a new vehicle, reports like this can help you pick a car that’s right for you.

How are cars evaluated for reliability?

To understand how reliable cars are, Consumer Reports uses surveys. The company sends out surveys to vehicle owners and asks them about their experiences with their vehicles. Consumer Reports gets individual reports from a wide range of owners. On average, the company uses 200 to 300 samples for each model year. With so much information on vehicle reliability, Consumer Reports can create its list of the most and least reliable cars.
