Mazda was ranked very highly in Consumer Report’s 2015 Auto Reliability Survey, scoring nearly 50% better than the industry average.
Each brand was ranked based on the average of its models’ predicated reliability scores, which itself was based on the responses of Consumer Reports subscribers who collectively owned or leased more than 740,000 vehicles.
Of the 28 brands featured, Mazda was ranked 4th, and notably had the smallest range between its least reliable model and its most reliable model. That means that even though Audi averaged just slightly higher than Mazda, it still offers numerous models less reliable than any given Mazda model. Conversely, most of the makes that placed just below Mazda but still above the average had individual models that were worse than average—while Mazda had none.
In other words, if you don’t like to gamble when you buy a car, El Dorado Mazda is the place to go. You always know what you’re going to get!
