Looks like the NAV/MFT system was the cause of the low score. Since 3.6.2. the system has been 100% on my car.
CS can suck an egg for all, I care. They don't have anything in real world testing that I'm aware of ?
I think it's all second hand info., regurgitated to fit their publications opinion.
From the CS article....
The vehicle with the top "predicted" reliability score was the 2014 Subaru Forester SUV, while Ford Co's C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid vehicle received the worst score, Consumer Reports said. To bad the Subaru doesn't have a nice infotainment system or much of an In-Car Electronics package
Two popular models, Honda's redesigned 2013 Accord with a V6 engine and the 2013 Nissan Altima, scored too poorly for Consumer Reports to continue recommending them.
One of the main problem areas in the survey was in-car electronics, including infotainment systems. Of the 17 categories tracked, the area generated the most complaints, including buggy systems with screen freezes, touch control lag or a reluctance to recognize a cell phone or other device.
For instance, last year, Ford tumbled to nearly the bottom of the survey due to flaws in its touch-screen navigation and entertainment system, MyFord Touch.
The C-Max Energi and Hybrid are full of new tech and new electronics......
What would they expect when comparing them to low tech imports with minimal systems???
It's like comparing an old 1980's Civic to a 2015 Cadillac Seville
