The V6, 4-wheel-drive Toyota Tacoma pickup truck has a 2010 Auto Reliability GPA of 3.81 over a 10-year data history and has helped place Toyota Motor Corporation second among all automobile manufacturers in the Early 2010 Auto Reliability Grade Point Averages and first among all automobile manufacturers in the Updated 2010 Auto Reliability Grade Point Averages. See the table below.

This page provides detailed 2010 auto reliability ratings and auto reliability rankings in a reorderable table listing most of the coupes, convertibles, sedans, hatchbacks, wagons, sport-utility vehicles, and pickup trucks sold in the U.S. It expresses the auto reliability ratings and auto reliability rankings, and makes available auto reliability comparisons and auto reliability contrasts, using the Auto Reliability Grade Point Average, or Auto Reliability GPA. This auto reliability index is used as it is an easy-to-understand auto reliability measure, and is well known to nearly all persons having attended high school. The page also employs Auto Reliability Grades as a reliability index, as this measure of auto reliability differences is well known to all persons having attended elementary school. The Auto Reliability GPA is an automobile reliability statistic that is obtained from Consumer Reports' auto reliability survey data summarized in the reliability tables of Consumer Reports: New Car Buying Guide: 2010 and the April 2010 issue of the Consumer Reports magazine. Column reordering on this page is Ajax enabled to make for a convenient and easy-to-use reordering option.

The Reliable Two, Toyota Motor Corporation and Honda Motor Company, appear first in the table, because of their rather singular stature; the remaining manufacturers are listed alphabetically.

Letter grades are determined thusly: A if the GPA is 3.50 to 4.00, B if the GPA is 2.50 to 3.49, C if the GPA is 1.50 to 2.49, D if the GPA is 0.50 to 1.49, and F if the GPA < 0.50.

GPAs for 4 age ranges are given so that the visitor may examine more thoroughly the age range that is of greater interest to him/her, if such there be.

To arrange any column in ascending order (smallest value on top), click the header of the column. Arranging a reliability GPA or Grade column in ascending order will place the lowest reliability scores and least reliable autos at the top (after those with empty cells) and the highest reliability scores and most reliable autos at the bottom of the table. To rearrange any column in descending order (largest value on top), click the header one more time. Arranging a reliability GPA or Grade column in descending order will place the highest reliability scores and most reliable autos at the top.

Notice how Toyota and Honda products dominate the upper end of the reliability spectrum for all age ranges.

Caution      When the number of model years of data (appearing in the far right column) for a vehicle is limited to more recent years, the reliability GPAs, Average GPA, and Minimum GPA of that vehicle may be less reflective of the vehicle's reliability over a longer period of time. For example, the Ford Fusion has only a 4-year reliability history, so if one is considering purchasing a used Fusion, or a new Fusion but owning it for 6 or more years, it may be better to examine the GPAs of the Ford line in the outer years.

Disclosure      Site manager is currently a very small shareholder of Ford Motor Company (2010-04-27). I am not, and have not been, a shareholder of any other motor vehicle manufacturer.

A PDF version of this page is available for downloading and/or printing. As the quality standing of each auto manufacturer changes slowly over time, you may wish to save the PDF version for your perusal over the next several decades, for sharing with friends or future generations, or for negotiating with recalcitrant dealerships. A PDF version for the 2009 Reliability GPAs is also available. The latter may be particularly useful if a vehicle of interest does not appear in the 2010 list.

Note      Although this site was created using software by Microsoft, you may encounter difficulty in downloading a PDF file from this page using Internet Explorer. However, with Mozilla Firefox, there should be no difficulty, and the download should be speedy.

The method of computation of the GPAs is probably familiar to nearly every college, technical school, and high school student (at least I hope so). A Grade Point of 4.00 (that is, an A) is given to a Consumer Reports "Much Better Than Average" rating, a GP of 3.00 (that is, a B) is given to a CR "Better Than Average" rating, a GP of 2.00 (that is, a C) to an "Average" rating, a GP of 1.00 (that is, a D) to a "Worse Than Average" rating, and a GP of 0.00 (that is, an F) to a "Much Worse Than Average" rating. A Grade Point Average (GPA) is an average of the Grade Points and is computed using Microsoft's Average(a:b,[c:d],...) function.

The table is an immediate import from Microsoft's Access and a more distant import from Microsoft's Excel. The integration of the Access database into Microsoft's Web Expression software makes the reordering of the columns a rather simple task. For Ajax's partial post back, the ScriptManager and UpdatePanel controls were inserted by dragging; <ContentTemplate> was manually inserted into the code immediately after the ScriptManager and Update controls.
