Car Brand Report Card Earns Mazda Second Place among Automakers

Often, we view vehicles as either having exhilarating performance but lacking reliability, or as reliable models that are boring to drive. Consumer Reports’ annual Car Brand Report Card proves that it is indeed possible to unite performance and reliability. As a matter of fact, Mazda’s report card landed the automaker in second place on the 2015 list.

Vehicles are ranked based on both their road-test scores and their projected reliability. The road-test score is achieved through evaluating factors such as fuel-efficiency, driving and handling, and refinement.
