Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).
A typical model has about to samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.
There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.

Chrysler Recalls 3, Dodge Nitro and Jeep Liberty SUVs
Dodge Nitro SE
Jeep Liberty Limited
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), summarizes the problem by stating that the park brake lever clutch drum may distort and reduce the effectiveness of the park brake system, allowing the vehicle to move despite operator engagement of the parking brake lever.
This recall affects both small SUVs built before February Chrysler dealers will make the fix for free, and owners are encouraged to call Chrysler at for more information about the recall and to determine whether their Nitro or Liberty is affected.
If you are a driver so affected, please take quick action. Automatic transmissions use a parking pawl when the transmission is placed in "park," eliminating the possibility of a runaway vehicle. The parking brake on automatics is a redundancy, welcome on steep hills or with big loads. Manuals, however, rely on the parking brake to lock a parked vehicle in place. Engine compression ("leaving it in gear") is effective on flat surfaces or mild inclines, and in such cases picking the lowest gear ratio, usually reverse or first, is the safest bet. But we always advise using the parking brake as well, as even an anxious pet in the vehicle could potentially knock the shift lever into neutral allowing it to roll.--Colin Mathews
