The recently published Consumer Reports’ annual reliability survey has ranked Tesla 19th in the list of 24 EV automakers.

Last year Tesla came second to last out of 28 automakers, while this year it jumped 4 spots. Joining Tesla at the bottom of the rankings were Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Jeep, GMC and Chevrolet.  BMW, however, has climbed to the third place, climbing 10 spots.

Tesla Motors, the market leader in EV sales and the manufacturer on which CR received the most data from owners, continues to have issues with body hardware, steering/suspension, paint and trim, and climate system on its models, but the electric powertrains have very few problems,

the reports says.

According to CR, it is the Model 3 that has the better quality among all Tesla cars, while all the other Tesla models–the S, Y, and X –are all below average.

The  leader of the rating this year is Toyota, with Lexus coming in the second place. Last year, it was the opposite, as Lexus surprisingly overtook its mother company.

The survey looked at data from 300,000 vehicles built between 2000 and 2022 (including a few 2023 model year vehicles that were introduced early). It rates vehicles in 17 different areas all of which are all added up to give the manufacturer’s total score.
