Jeff, I've asked about particular reliability on this board in the past and while I appreciate the input from everyone I've noticed most people on this board don't seem to put significant miles on their cars, or at least don't hang on to their car past a significant number of miles.

Not sure about you but when I'm seeking input on reliability I'm looking at how reliable they are (or cost of repairs) out to 100 - 150k milage on a car. And part of that reasoning is that over the last decade my family has gotten in the routine of buying cars used at about the 50k mark.

So yeah, check CR. They aren't the holy bible for everything car related but they should be a good metric on long term trends and reliability.
