A recent announcement made by Consumer Reports today says that the company will no longer blindly recommend all new Toyota cars and trucks after two recent models earned below-average rankings in a reliability study. It has long been practice for Consumer Reports to favor Toyota for their well established reliability but as of recently they’ve had to have a change of heart on the matter. The Tundra 4×4 V8 and, surprisingly, the Camry V6 both scored below-average on long term reliability. This comes as a surprise to many at the magazine, most of all because Toyota was sort of a benchmark for reliability in the industry. This goes to show how important it is for consumers to stay informed. Reliable today does not necessarily mean reliable tomorrow.
