Toyota still the best?
10 best cars: Consumer Reports
The influential magazine name the cars, trucks and SUVs it rates highest in popular categories.
Parent company Toyota has been taking its lumps lately, but the carmaket and its luxury division Lexus still makes some very good vehicles. Case in point: the Lexus LS full-size luxury sedan scores a near-flawless 99 on Consumer Reports 100-point scale.
Toyota's recall mess has caused some problem though. Toyota would have had four cars in this Top 10 list instead of just two. Two vehicles -- the Rav4 and Highlander SUVs -- have had their recommendations suspended as a result of recalls that resulted in "stop sales" orders by the carmarker.
