The prestigious American car survey Consumer Reports has now been published.
This survey is one of the most comprehensive in the United States and includes elements such as test-driving, security and reliability.
Five Japanese automakers won the first five top prizes and the manufacturer Subaru ended up on the top spot for the particular operating reliability and high resale value.
Subaru increased the sales in the U.S. in 2011 for the third consecutive year and sold 266.989 cars, which is a new "All-Time High."
