Ford has slid to the second from the last brand in the Consumer Reports 2012 Annual Auto Reliability Survey, as it continues to be dogged by problems with its new automatic transmission and the MyFord and MyLincoln Touch system.
Just two years ago the automaker was doing well, coming in 10th in the survey. Last year it fell to 20th. This year it comes in 27th out of 28 brands. Its luxury brand, Lincoln, was in 26th place. Jaguar was at the bottom – again.
The analysis is based on 1.2 million cars from model years 2003-2012. Japanese automakers took the top seven spots, in this order: Scion, Toyota, Lexus, Mazda, Subaru, Honda, and Acura.
