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

Take certain things you read with a grain of salt. The whole "unintended acceleration" issue with the Toyota's were, to be blunt, a whole bunch of blown out of proportion bullshit. There were many, many tests done and after all was said and done it was determined that other than pedals getting caught on floor mats, the "unintended acceleration" was nothing more than user error. Even in the events of the pedals getting caught on the mats it is still user error in my opinion, due to the fact that simply hitting the brakes would stop the car.

Here is a article from Car & Driver detailing the results of the investigation.
