i been working at an auto parts store for almost 4 years while putting myself through school for radiology. i can tell you this, any car can be reliable. it all depends on the amount of maintenance with the exception of known issues with certain companies. of course hondas toyotas are always considered the most reliable, thats because they need the least maintenance of most car brands. japanese cars usually have less electrical issues. american cars have the strongest bodies, and chasis. chrysler isnt really my pick, sorry to proud chrysler jeep dodge owners but in my experience they have the worst interiors. my honda accord with 195k miles right now is a pump gas and go car. oil change and clean gas is all it needs.
