I wouldn't believe consumer reports if they said the sun was hot!As far as cars go,I go to the dealers and talk to the techs that work on them and see what cars are there.That is gonna be about the most reliable way to see reliability.I take what people say with a grain of salt.They are always gonna voice the bad the loudest and softly mumble the good.Just look at the forums,not just this one but all of them and see how many complaints versus compliments.Ford techs have told me a vast majority of issues with the new focus were user error and unfamiliarity not actual problems and the real problems are relatively easily solved.C R rated Honda Odessey's very high and the 02 I had went through 4 trannys,2 egr valves,all 6 coil packs,both side door motors went out at 400 bucks each and never got better than 9 city 14 overall(i got 21 overall in my 91 vic with 340000 miles)all this in the first 70000 miles.Rant Off

Funny!!!
Yeah it's a TRUCK not a sports car or road sofa!
It's meant to put a ton of crap in the back or drag 10000 pounds not coddle in comfort although the new trucks come close.

And WTH was giving the Smart for TWO a bad ratinng for being a TWO seater for? It was meant to be a friggin two seater, not a kid hauler.
Same BS with the scion IQ... was the guy that tried the back seat like 6'? I'm 5'6" and while not sprawled out it wasnt tuna can back there, then again the car isn;t made for travelling either its a commuter.
As some one else said... they need to stick to toasters....

Not so fast. Just spent over a month in Europe last summer, and I saw people put smart cars in parking spots that I wouldn't have considered for a motorcycle. It might be bad for one person's needs, but in Metro Paris or Rome, they're just the ticket!
