I always like as a starting point the little tables on reliability in the April
issue of the magazine "Consumer Reports." The tables reflect individual
consumers' repair data on some 675,000 cars over the last several years or so.
The tables have little black, red, and white dots to indicate the reliability of
different parts of the car. E.g. exhaust system, electrical, air conditioning,
etc.

Also, another part of the April issue of CR gives a summary of fuel economy,
prices, and which cars in particular CR recommends as overall "good buys."
