Most of us depend on our vehicles to get us where we need to go, anywhere and anytime. Although fuel efficiency is a very hot topic among new car buyers, overall reliability also remains at the top of the checklist when shopping for your next car.

So how do you know if a car is really reliable? Well, according to Forbes recent list of 'tough' cars, a reliable vehicle is designed to weather all conditions and soldier on without complaint, while less reliable cars have a strong appetite for expensive parts and require repairs a little too often.

While it isn't easy to predict which new cars are going to be the most reliable for consumers, there are a number ways to determine which have the best odds of doing so. After reading through a number of dependability reports and safety tests performed by J.D. Power and Associates, Consumer Reports and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), we couldn't help but slightly disagree with some of the Forbes findings. We wanted to select our own recommendations for a top 10 list using a similar formula combined with our test drive feedback from previous reviews.
