On Monday, in their annual spring auto issue, Consumer Reports ranked Honda and Subaru the two best all-around automakers. Surprisingly, in spite of their numerous recalls, the non-profit magazine ranked Toyota as the third best car manufacturer, the same designation that they received last year.

David Champion, senior director of Consumer Reports’ Auto Test Center, said that Toyota remained among the top three automakers because they continue to assemble quality vehicles, according to The New York Times.

“I think once they get through all the recalls, you’ll see that they are a very, very reliable manufacturer,” Champion stated.

Meanwhile, the Big 3 American auto companies fared no better than they did in 2009. While Ford ranked 11th among all car manufacturers, General Motors and Chrysler finished in the last two positions.

However, in the individual categories, the Chevrolet Traverse won the best family SUV and the Silverado pickup was recognized as the best truck.

The 2010 Consumer Reports rankings were based on the performance, reliability, utility and comfort of each brand.
