Subaru top maker in Consumer Reports ratings

Driven by what Consumer Reports called “wave of impressive redesigned models in the last few years,” Subaru earned the top score overall in the magazine’s report cards for 2012 for 13 major automakers. The report cards – in the April issue due on sale March 6 – are based on performance, comfort, utility and reliability in the magazine’s testing and consumer survey.
