DETROIT (AP) -- Asian brands again dominated Consumer Reports' 2009 car and truck reliability survey, but several Ford Motor Co. models were as dependable or better than the industry's best.
Asian brands have scored best in the survey for years. The magazine says Toyota's Scion small-car brand topped the reliability list for the second year in a row. Brands from Chrysler and General Motors continued to struggle.
Honda, Toyota, Infiniti and Acura rounded out the top five. Ford's Mercury finished 10th. It was only Detroit brand to rank in the top 10. The Chrysler brand was the worst of 33 brands sold in the U.S.
Consumer Reports based its reliability rankings on surveys filled out by subscribers who own 1.4 million vehicles.
The magazine says several Ford vehicles have world-class reliability.
