    Consumer Reports names the best and worst cars by brand

    Consumer Reports ranks the ILX as Acura's worst model :O.

    While car brand reputation can be a strong influence on purchase decisions, such perceptions can be misleading. The reality is, every brand offers models that perform across a spectrum, with some are clearly better than others.

    As we see in our annual Car Brand Perception survey, how consumers view brands can often be a trailing indicator and not reflect the current reality. To further illustrate this point, we have compiled a list chronicling the best and worst models by brand based on our overall test scores.

    The test performance variation differs from brand to brand, with some brands' worst model being still doing rather well, while others span a wide range making any generalities quite misleading. Take Acura, for example. Even its worst model, the ILX, scores a 77 (out of 100) and meets our performance standards, safety, and reliability criteria to be Recommended. Meanwhile, the best Jeep is the Grand Cherokee Laredo V6. It earns 71 points in our tests, six points less than the worst Acura. However, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited marks the low point in our current ratings, scoring only a 20.
    The gap between best and worst can be even broader. Chevrolet, for instance, spans from the Corvette Z06 (92) to the Spark (34).
    Get the list here:

    It's kind of expected isn't it..? It's the smallest and cheapest. Like they said it still scored well at 77 where even Jeep's best model is a 71. That speaks well of Acura I'd say and to their consistency say like Chevy ranging from 34 to 92 lol

    LOL yah Acura's worst is still better than most brands. I admit a bit of trolling with this thread.

    Actually a rating in the 70s is pretty good.

    Well with the MDX being the best seller.. I'd say the worse rated would either be the RDX or the ILX.

    You have to realize most of Acuras lineup is solid.
    TL - very good V6 sedan
    TSX - not much to say. awesome car
    MDX - best selling
    RDX - also decent selling - has its place below the MDX
    RL - now I am surprised this didn't get a low review but maybe they were looking at the new RLX.

    They are all good cars. None of them scream "I'M A TERRIBLE CAR"

    I'd say the worse selling Acuras are the ZDX and RL.
