Hyundai beat out its Asian, European, and North American competitors to earn the distinction of “Most Reliable Manufacturer” in the 2013 CarMD Vehicle Health Index Manufacturer & Vehicle Reliability Ranking. Released today, the annual report provides a ranking of manufacturers and vehicles with the lowest combined “check engine” repair incidents and costs. The Index ranks the top 10 manufacturers, top 100 vehicles overall, top vehicles by category and the most common repairs by make. After two consecutive years of finishing second Hyundai overtook Toyota and drove to the top of the list with its low repair frequency.

Hyundai’s 2013 Index rating was .80 with an average repair cost of $312.67, the lowest Index rating of all parent manufactures studied and the second lowest overall repair cost. This year’s Index is based on more than 151,000 specific repairs performed on model year 2003 to 2013 vehicles from Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013. The Index is determined by the manufacturers whose vehicles had the fewest percentage of CarMD repair incidents combined with the lowest cost per repair, per number of registered vehicles on the road.

Trying to understand the methodology behind the rankings. How does Toyota have 4x the problem rate as Hyundai, at 50% average higher repair cost (if those facts are even believable) and end up ranked #2?

Also, some of the makes had big year-over-year changes. If the ratings are based on 10 model years' worth of vehicles as claimed, that's not mathematically probable. How could adding MY2013 at the front end, and dropping MY2002 off the back, effect a change of more than a few percentage points in a make's ratings?

Both the Hyundai and Toyota ratings fell from 2012 but Toyota fell more giving Hyundai the #1 spot. I think a lot of these rankings are ridiculous and are almost arbitrary. "Lowest combined check engine light repair incidents and costs"...1) You have to look at the methodology and the definitions to see if this even relates to an average consumer experience...and 2) I can see them defining "number of incidents and cost of major repairs" differently and having totally different results. Similar issues with dissimilar results of their rankings. Sounds like Consumer Reports owns CarMD now....
