The Subaru brand made news recently when it topped Consumer Reports' 2022 brand rankings. Each year, Consumer Reports rates all the top brands on the market, according to a variety of criteria, including performance metrics, consumer satisfaction, safety ratings, and reliability, among others. This year, Subaru was the only brand to score over 80, at 81, beating out several top competitors and unseating last year's top finisher, Mazda. Let us tell you more about what made Subaru top the list this year at Wagner Subaru. You will find us here in Fairborn and proudly serving Beavercreek, OH.

Earning High Marks of Excellence

Consumer Reports ranks its brands based on results in four main categories: Road Test, Reliability, Owner Satisfaction, and Safety. Over 50 vehicles get selected for road tests, including the top trucks and cars from rated brands. Owner satisfaction data gets collected from customer surveys sent to Consumer Reports subscribers, gauging their opinions on their current rides. Consumer Reports members also get asked about their experiences with hundreds of thousands of cars, collecting data about reliability and identifying trouble areas. Finally, of course, safety ratings, which get compiled using data from new car assessment programs such as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Knowing all of this, it makes sense why Subaru attained the highest score of 81. All these vehicles come from a brand well-known for its long-term value, with up to 96 percent of new Subaru models lasting well beyond 10 years/100,000 miles. Most new Subaru models come standard with things like EyeSight Driver Assist Safety Features, LED headlights, and Subaru Symmetrical AWD. Thus, most new Subaru models have earned high marks for safety, including being Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
