To be a Top Pick, a model has to have an exemplary Overall Score in its category. That score comes from Consumer Reportsfour key pillars: road-test performance, predicted reliability, owner satisfaction and safety.

Gasp! A Cruze!

I've seen lots of reviewers give these a pretty solid rating, but then say they suck at handling. That's really not the point of a compact car, is it?

Never believe anything Consumer Reports writes. Absolute birdcage lining. The original fake news.

I have a buddy who swears by it. Drives me nuts, the Suburban has a predicted reliability of terrible, and we have yet to see any come in. Lmao

Yet the Cruze has a excellent reliability rating considering its first year with the new design..

and yet were dealing with water leaks, cracked pistons, oil pans leaking, etc. lol

Lmao. Mine handles pretty well. Those reviews are mostly for the LT, and I'd have to agree - they ride very well, but it's mushy in the turns. The little 18" sidewalls and Z link help it out a lot. The steering is completely and totally numb, though.
I agree with their decision to make the Miata the best sports car. :D However the Ridgeline should not be listed as best truck, it's not even a truck at all, it's more like a Ute or an ugly, tall el-camino.

Joke all ya want hahaha, they sell like hotcakes here. Don't know where people get the money either.

Three months ago we had a 22 year old kid come in and pay cash for a 2017 Tahoe Premier.
I'm not a fan of the new Cruze but...Holy **** is the Prius ugly?!

I'm honestly a little surprised by the Ridgeline.

I think Honda Laura is selling those trucks herself. I was already sold on my Sport prior to her videos.
