While we're not huge fans of Consumer Reports, as we often seem to disagree with their decisions in areas where we've got a lot of product knowledge, there's no doubt that they've got clout with the buying public, and people pay attention to their reader surveys. The Quest, Armada SUV, Titan, and Infiniti QX56 SUV all ranked in the lower 48 in this latest round of reader reliability rankings, and we're not talking about the contiguous United States. While the new Avalon and the Honda Odyssey scored only average rankings, the Japanese automakers still dominated the top 31 slots conceding only two slots to the Americans while the Euros were locked out entirely.
