We all seem to have our pre-determined stereotypes about automobile makers, and to be honest, most of them are rather accurate.  For example, I think it’s pretty safe to assume that everyone believes Japanese cars are some of the most cost-efficient and long-lasting vehicles made, while German cars are known for their handling and turbo-charged engines.  And before the recent resurgence of the American car companies, most people would probably label US cars as unreliable, gas guzzling monstrosities.  Not any more though!  All it takes is one look at what Chevy, Ford, Cadillac, and Jeep are putting out (just to name a few) and you’ll definitely change that domestic tune real quick.

But regardless of your predispositions, Consumer Reports have come out with a pretty substantial listing of the major automobile manufacturers and their best (and worst) models. Now if you would assume that the cars under the ‘best’ column would be good CT auto insurance vehicles, then I’d say you’re probably right (and subsequently those on the ‘worst’ list would NOT be good cars to have or insurance).  The chart below says it all, and I can’t say that I’m not surprised by most of the best and worst either.
