    I own a 2023 Mazda 3 Carbon Edition AWD. I absolutely love it! ❤️

  2. What was the mileage on the Ford Maverick?

  3. If only a RAV4 could fit inside my garage (that’s a must for our house). Will consider a Toyota Corolla Cross Hybrid or Kona instead.

    It’s beyond stupidity why the Ford Maverick doesn’t come as a plugin hybrid.

    Hell, the Ford Escape hybrid came out 20 years ago, why did it take Ford so long to be the first in class to produce a hybrid pickup? Why has Toyota been worse?

      Bruh plug in hybrids only work well for a small group of people

      Doesn’t surprise me at all: the Mav was designed to hit the low-end of the market that has been ignored for too long. And this was a very good move for Ford, delivering a basic work truck that many people want. Would a PHEV Mav be nice? Sure. Would Ford’s marketing department go for it? Probably not.

      There will be a change in the next 3 to 5 years on the way new lithium batteries are produced some manufacturers are waiting until then to come out with full lineup. Batteries will be smaller lighter.

      They copy Toyota a lot with hybrids but they did well with the Escape and the Fusion hybrid in the past.

    • @kevinhenry177 | February 27, 2024 at 2:34 PM |

      Yes, I thought Toyota would have the first hybrid pick up truck that got phenomenal, gas mileage I was wrong it’s the Ford maverick hybrid! I have this vehicle and I absolutely love it! Highly recommend it to anyone looking to save a ton of money in their fuel cost! I used to be a loyal Toyota customer not anymore. Toyota has completely missed their mark in producing a fuel efficient pick up truck and no the new Toyota Tacoma is not a pick up truck that gets excellent Excellent fuel mileage, they went after the torque and power. Very sad that Toyota missed their mark on this vehicle completely #HappyFordCustomer.

  5. It was predictably a Toyota/subaru party this year

  6. @hereigoagain5050 | February 27, 2024 at 10:58 AM |

    Nice picks, but no Lexus?

  7. @invisibles362 | February 27, 2024 at 11:05 AM |

    Almost all toyota 👍

  8. Add likely LONGterm reliability and some of these should disappear from the list.

  9. @Mabeylater293 | February 27, 2024 at 11:11 AM |

    Ain’t no way I would trust BMW long term reliability.

    • @benchmark3332 | February 27, 2024 at 11:50 AM |

      I don’t trust a manufacturer with plastic water pump.

    • With that grammar, you likely can’t afford it.

    • @KidKingdomHearts | February 27, 2024 at 3:15 PM |

      To be fair, BMW benched the 2jz to make the B/S58 engines. So I trust bmw’s engine (6cyl) but I’m not sure about the other internals. But I believe most bmw drivers should be good out to end of warranty at least.

    • Ain’t no way I would trust Tesla short-term reliability, and that’s on the list too.

  10. @luis.capsalot8124 | February 27, 2024 at 11:56 AM |

    How come you guys forget about the Mazda CX-5 ??? I have a 2020 Grand Touring naturally aspirated. It has one of the best safety ratings in it’s class and is super reliable !!!

  11. Surprised the Prius was on this list after it was named as a least favorite vehicle on your worst cars of 2023 podcast.

    • @chezzyperson3339 | February 27, 2024 at 12:49 PM |

      It was named one of the most disappointing cars by one of the reviewers

    • @carcastle8324 | February 27, 2024 at 1:54 PM |

      Ya that doesn’t make much sense, also who two of the three top picks were Hondas on that podcast and not one of those Hondas were on here, doesn’t make too much sense.

  12. Toyota: Buy once, cry once!

  13. @gregbonfiglio8657 | February 27, 2024 at 1:01 PM |

    The Prius might be a fine vehicle but I can’t un-see that it looks like a Dodge Neon.

  14. @BryceLovesTech | February 27, 2024 at 1:18 PM |

    Love my Tesla

  15. Toyota…no thanks. Those cars are as exciting as…mmmmmmm…nothing!!

  16. Nobody in their right mind would recommend a Tesla.

  17. @listofromantics | February 27, 2024 at 3:03 PM |

    Does long term reliability not mean anything anymore?

    I’m sorry, but outside of Subaru and Toyota, the historical brand reliability (and value) for some of your picks are garbage.

  18. @hagenherrmann8204 | February 27, 2024 at 3:04 PM |

    I want sliding doors. Don’t leave me hanging here, CR!!
