YONKERS, NY - For the fourth consecutive year, Honda topped Consumer Report's "Best All-Around Vehicle" list.
Honda and Subaru tied with an overall score of 77 out of 100 points.
The full report, "Rating the carmakers" is in the Annual Auto Issue which goes on sale March 2. It is also available to subscribers at www.ConsumerReports.org.
The overall score for each automaker is based on the average of its vehicles' overall scores in Consumer Reports' road tests and their average predicted-reliability ratings from Consumer Reports' Annual Auto Survey. Manufacturers received a report card only if five or more of their vehicles were tested.
The redesigned 2010 Legacy sedan and Outback wagon raised Subaru's overall test score from 78 points to 81.
