    Hasn't anybody heard of the premature rear break wear on the 2008 and 2009 Honda Accords? Rear brakes are wearing out at 20,000 miles and sooner and the owners are being told that that's normal wear. Also we owners are being made to pay for replacing the rear brakes when in reality Honda knows that there's a problem with the premature wearing out of the brakes. Last week they even settled a class action law suit which covered this problem. Unlike Toyota who is doing everything possible to solve their problem for the consumer, Honda still wont admit that there is a problem and is charging the owners to replce the brakes; me included.

    I notice that the finest cars in the world are not on this list
    TOYOTA LEXUS it is a fact that 80 percent of most American made cars that are 20 years old are in the scrap heap while
    80 percent of Toyota made products are still on the road.
    The safety of ones wallet has been disregarded here.
    American auto makers will stop at nothing to berate the
    opposition that has made far superior products for decades.
    Anyone who buys into this is not the sharpest knife in the drawer….

      Mr. Brown, your knife needs a little sharpening, Try stating facts not opinions, Toyota makes some good cars but they also make some very deadly ones also. That's why there not on this list where you would like them to be.Probally the one setting in your driveway. American auto makers berating Toyota ? They are doing a great job of that themselves. Why not stop the finger pointing and blind acusations and try rating your own professional abilities compaired to the rest of the world. I'm sure there are many that can do it much better and cheapper than you.

    • Mathew

      Mr. Brown, You must be conservative Republican !!!
      Time change. We are living in 21st century.

      • Jim

        And you Mathew must be a Obama-loving jack ass.

        • Kris

          Jim i got news for you its not 1950 anymore you need to face it, alot of people love obama and you need to get over it. He is having to fix what presidents bush's reppublican ass messed up

    I don't know where is allthis come from probably another marketing scam

    every body knows that For example mercedes S class has the most sophisticated safty tech that money can buy this another scam like Toyota did earn over the years as a reliable car but we see what is finally coming out( the truth) one hasto ask himself that a car like lexus with $100,000 difference with merc or BMW can't compete that expense and extra price from the the Germans xcame from some where really serious after all they are not stupit to price their cars higher there is good reson for that you get what you pay

    I'm a dealer and drove most of the brands and also repair them.

  • Brendan

    Volvo is definitely one of the safest cars on the road today. What I like about Volvo is their flexibility to add on new safety features. Most Volvo's come with HID headlights but for those that don't, a simple conversion kit can do the trick.

    always safety first .life is only once………….

      true aun !

    Something to realize about crash test ratings is that in most cases the heavier a car is the more likely you are to survive. So yes a big Chevy Suburban may get horrible gas mileage, but you are much much more safe as compared to a Volvo C30 which made the best list.

  • Ben

    How has Volvo slipped? The list is alphabetical. Only four mid-size SUVs got the top award, and Volvo had two of them. They aren't ranked within the category of "Top Safety Pick." Volvo doesn't make a small SUV, so it wasn't in that category.

    Whoever wrote this article seems to have picked the first cars on the list and mistakenly listed them as the "best." The Buick, Audi, and Honda aren't the best, they're the first in the alphabet. Volvo is last in the alphabet (just past Volkswagon).
