Car-Repair1

 

(CBS News) – Which cars go to the repair shop least and boast the lowest repair costs? Honda (HMC) tops this year’s manufacturer rankings by auto repair site CarMD. Last year’s winner, Hyundai, finished second.

Toyota (TM) ranked third this year. The three Detroit-based companies finished next, with General Motors (GM) fourth, Ford (F) fifth and Chrysler (FCAU) sixth. Kia, Nissan, Mazda and BMW rounded out the top 10.

CarMD gathers repair reports annually from its network of mechanics, and the 2014 survey covered work done to 40,400 vehicles of model years 2004 to 2014. CarMD also sells a $119.85 diagnostic device, which reads computer codes on your car, telling you the car’s likely engine-related problem before you go to a mechanic.

Of the CarMD index, now in its fourth year, Chief Marketing Officer Doug Sobieski says: “While this index is based on in-use vehicle repairs, it has also proven to be a useful tool in helping car and truck shoppers make informed decisions about the vehicles they are considering.”
