Ford has no cars in the Top 10, but came close with its 2012 Ford Fusion (No. 12) and accounts for 22% of the Top 100 from its Ford brand alone. Combined with two Lincolns and two Mercury vehicles, Ford has the most cars on that list. It also holds two of the top three spots in the truck category with the 2012 Ford 350 and 2012 Ford 250.
While its vehicles don't need repairs often, those few fixes get costly. Nearly 6.6% of Ford owners shell out $447 to change the ignition coil and spark plugs, while another 5.5% are set back $890 when they have to replace the control module for their antilock brakes. Oh, and when Ford's cars prove unreliable, they do so in spectacular fashion. Its 2003 Ford Windstar minivan is the absolute worst-rated vehicle CarMD tracks. If your family owns or owned one, we're sure you have lovely stories of summer vacations spent waiting for the tow truck.
