Ok so here's my beef with this.
What the hell is with this list?

See how the Explorer is listed twice? Now look at how the Focus is listed with hatchback.
Does that imply the sedan is more "reliable" ?

I mean the Explorer V6 4WD was listed differently from the V6 2WD that means the other Explorers are ok? Meaning the 4cyl is fine and maybe the Ecoboost V6 too
Also by the way, I have to say.. the Explorer's front end is ugly as hell.. lol
Just logged in to CR to check out the details. Yes I subscribe to CR online - but not for car ratings. I agree they are biased.

The Focus sedan scores "excellent" in the vast majority of categories and "good" in the rest except for "transmission minor" and "audio system" in which it scores "poor".

The hatchback scores one tick below the sedan in the following categories for whatever reason: suspension, paint / trim, squeaks & rattles and power equipment. I guess these lower scores explain why the hatchback only is on the bottom 10 list.

What surprises me most is the sedan's excellent rating under squeaks & rattles. Mine has several squeaks and rattles and they appear to be chronic based on many other posts here reporting the same ones.
