How do the following cars compare in terms of reliability and what common problems do they have?

I'm looking to get answers from people who can understand my question as opposed to just reading comments and statistics on sites. All car models have issues. I'm trying to minimize their likelihood. Areas of concern from different sources online are in parentheses, but I could be wrong. They're not necessarily specific to the model year.
  • 2013 Subaru Legacy (Gasket leak, oil burn, fuel consumption)
  • 2014/2015 Hyundai Sonata (Engine seizing)
  • 2012/2013 Honda Accord (Surprisingly a lot, given its reputation. Just a few examples: break rotors wear, transmission failures/hesitation, easily damaged condenser, seat discomfort - not reliability, but so many complaints, unintended acceleration - a few reports, but it's a serious issue)
  • 2012/2013 Toyota Camry (Again surprising. Check engine light issues, bad smell from AC, acceleration hesitating/unintended)
  • 2011/2012/2013 Chevrolet Malibu (different issues generally related to the engine and starting it or steering)
