Generally, large-sized cars like the Crown Victoria (edit: discontinued and Canadian made) are the most reliable and smaller cars like the Focus are unreliable as well as unsafe. (Edit: Focus is safe and very reliable) But if you're going for looks and a decent reliability, go with a mid-size like the Fusion or Malibu.

The longest lasting American vehicles are Chevrolet and Ford full sized pickups. They are designed to be maintained and repaired by owners. Cars are designed to be maintained and repaired by dealers. It follows then, that the dealers with the best service department, (at least during warranty) are going to provide the most satisfactory ownership experience. Where I live, Buick has the best dealership. Luckily, they have started making great cars again instead of the marshmallow cars of yesteryear.

The good news is that nearly all new cars will last twice as long with a third less maintenance than cars built just 10 years ago.

Hands Down!! The Chevy Corvette is the most reliable care sold between 1990 and 1995.

Definitely. Especially German cars. Most European cars are extreme reliable and have low maintenance costs. Unless if you buy a Ferrari (;

Most reliable is Toshiba, least reliable is Dell.

Reliable? Hmm. Peter knew the most about Jesus but was not reliable. I'd say that Paul was the most reliable witness.
