    Tesla’s are overpriced, full of design flaws especially poor interior quality/fit and finish and exterior gaps in body panels. Lexus is the king of quality, fit & finish is remarkable

      @Stephen DiBari nonsense. People stop believing this once they experience one of these cars.

    • You sound like someone who missed out on buying their stock 😂😂😂

    • Stephen DiBari | February 16, 2023 at 4:25 PM |

      @Luke Brothers overpriced compared to a non EV car.

      My 2002 Lexus ES300 is all the luxury and beautiful quality I can ask for in a car. I get 30 mpg on the highway with it’s small 3.0 liter V6. Best is it’s paid off.

    • If Teslas were actually crappy nobody would buy them.

      @Stephen DiBari It’s quite a different kind of car. I prefer electric but I’d never buy a Tesla. I just don’t think the overall quality is there and I’m not talking about panel gaps. Solidity isn’t there. The Tesla Model 3 is a sporty drive, more comparable to the IS but much quicker.

    CR, It is very disconcerting to see certain brands on and off the Top Pick list in alternate years.

  3. Glad to see Model 3 getting some love. My 2018 has easily been the best car I’ve ever owned. Much better experiment than comparable BMW 3 Series.

    • Christopher Peppey | February 16, 2023 at 1:27 PM |

      Yeah, my 19 is the best car I’ve ever owned. And it’s been updated again and again.

    • Ricco kimbrough | February 16, 2023 at 5:12 PM |

      I have the 328D and absolutely love it and get 55mpg

    • Joseph Sahagun | February 16, 2023 at 7:51 PM |

      How many miles do you get when you travel on your model 3? I have a Long range AWD for 4 yrs now and I’m lucky if I get 200 miles on a single charge going to cali from vegas. 2 adults and 2 kids. I will trade this once the NX plug in hybrid is not marked up.😂

  4. Tesla recall = 362,000
    No Hondas????

  5. Damn, not 1 Honda

    • Honda sent what it used to be. Sad.

    • Donald Wilson | February 16, 2023 at 5:35 PM |

      Also, many of the Honda models were redesigned for 2023, including the Accord, CR-V, HR-V, and Pilot, so there’s probably not enough information on them yet. Maybe that will change in 2024.

  6. Subarus consume a lot of oil, it’s inherent in their boxer design. Consumer Reports even mentioned it in a past review, Talking Cars I think it was. And the engine needs to be removed just to change the head gaskets.

  7. The Tesla ??? 😂😂😂😂😂😂

  8. Do the korean brands have the security issues?

  9. Tesla sucks! 🤮

    You ok Consumer Reports? 🤒

    The rest of the list looks good. ✅

    Tesla chargers where? I live in central Florida I have not seen a charging station yet

  11. mark williams | February 16, 2023 at 4:36 PM |

    The Corolla Cross is a slug . Slow as molasses in January

  12. BryceLovesTech | February 16, 2023 at 4:43 PM |

    I love my 2013 Tesla model S 150,000 miles on the original battery and still going strong and the supercharger network is amazing

  13. The Queen's Half Corgi | February 16, 2023 at 4:44 PM |

    Tesla, best EV experience, sh!t management running the company, and way overpriced (at least here in Canada) considering the build quality, ride etc.

  14. Daniel Soriano | February 16, 2023 at 4:58 PM |

    NO SUZUKI SAMURAI?? what a shame

  15. a few months ago ,the Hyundai Tuscon hybrid was SUCH the CR darling ….then POOF!!…GONE!!

  16. Yeah Jeff makes a great point on the Corolla as to where you live and the cost of electricity.

    Long-term reliability should factor more into the ratings. I have seen a lot of Chrysler and GM junk get recommended based on one or two years of data. These cars have usually become black circle specials. It is a disservice to the readers and to CR’s reputation to recommend a model with only a year of data.

  19. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, no one pays for reports when there are so many free resources available. Rising competitors made this free and it will continue. CR could focus on the needs/wants of each trim levels in a vehicle, but eventually someone will do it for free.
