6 Cars Lose CR's Recommendation Over Reliability Issues
The Acura RDX, Tesla Model 3, and others no longer have the designation, but three models gain it

Itís difficult to understand how CR operates these days. If you break down the RDXís reliability by category itís well above average or above average in all categories except for the infotainment system which is rated average. Not bad for a new model which is the first to implement a radical new infotainment system. The first model year of the RDX is likely the worst itís going to be for Acura with a lot of the tech in that model being used in future new models and hence be more polished versions of it as time goes by, including in the RDX itself.

Damned if you do and damned if you donít. New tech comes with a period of refining via consumer feedback. Old tech is under fire for being old.

Exactly. Consumer Reports needs to stick to everything else but cars. They have lost all credibility to me. Literally most of the cars they hate and donít recommend, are the cars that are praised and set sales records. I know NOBODY who turns to consumer reports for car shopping help. There might be some, but in my world, they are irrelevant AF.

I still check out their reliability data but I have lost faith in the process by which they come up with their overall reliability score/prediction. Had I followed their recommendations, I wouldnít be the owner of a 2017 TLX that, two years and roughly 43,000 kilometres in, is proving to be fine regarding reliability. One warranty repair so far and for a minor item I wasnít even aware needed repairing. If thatís what unreliable looks like by CRís current standards, obviously the publication red-flagging reliability isnít necessarily the deal-breaker it used to be.

I used to swear by CR re reliability recommendations but how they do it now is seriously flawed, certainly itself unreliable.
