The Toyota Corolla HB got demoted.
In other news, 22 get promoted to the recommended list.
Likewise, earning it certainly has its ups. The timing for this announcement is not unusual. In fact, we are currently in the middle of awards’ season and of the hundreds handed out every year, landing on Consumer Reports’ recommended list, as an automaker, is good as gold, or is it lithium now?

Based on Consumer Reports’ reliability data accumulated via online surveys to their members, this “dirty dozen” have lost their titles because of their below- or well-below-average reliability.
The twelve are the following: Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Santa Fe, Hyundai Kona EV, Kia Sorento, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Nissan Rogue, Toyota Corolla Hatchback, Volvo S60, Buick Enclave, Ford Mustang, and Jeep Gladiator.
The recommended list now includes 22 new vehicles. Based on improved reliability according to the survey, these vehicles have earned one of the highest most relevant awards. And they are the following:
Acura MDX, Acura RDX, Acura TLX, Audi Q7, BMW X3, Chevrolet Blazer, Chevrolet TrailBlazer, Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Bronco Sport, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Ford Ranger, Genesis G70, Honda Odyssey, Honda Passport, Infiniti QX50, Kia Niro EV, Nissan Rogue Sport, Ram 1500, Volkswagen Atlas, Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, Volkswagen Jetta, and Volvo XC60.
