Total Car Score has released its list of the top 10 car brands of 2012, and this year, Chrysler beat out BMW and Kia to earn the #8 spot on the list.
The list’s rankings were based purely on reviews and performance. Total Car Score, also known as the Rotten Tomatoes of car review sites, collects reviews from the most trusted car critics including Consumer Reports, Edmunds, The Car Connection, and MSN Autos, and they calculate a composite score based on those reviews. Chrysler made the top 10 list right alongside other top-of-the-line brands like Infiniti, Mercedes-Bez, and Lexus.
For Chrysler, this is an amazing accomplishment. They are the second most improved brand on the list with an overall score of 79.78 and 3.71 point improvement from 2011. Only a short time ago, some people had counted Chrysler out, and yet here it is on the top 10 brands of 2012. Chrysler’s comeback continues, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
