Slideshow: The Best and Worst of Automotive Reliability

As it does every year, Consumers Union recently surveyed its members on the reliability of their vehicles. This year, it collected data on approximately 1.1 million cars and trucks, categorizing the members' likes and dislikes, not only of their vehicles, but of the vehicle sub-systems, as well.

We combed through the CU data and present to you the best and the worst. From engines and transmissions to brakes and fuel systems, we offer a peek at the vehicles and their components. For more information, see Consumer Reports' auto issue.
