1. Reliability

According to Consumer Reports’ latest reliability survey, Lincoln is now the most reliable domestic brand. Despite the fact that its lineup now consists entirely of SUVs, it managed to jump up 14 spots. However, the Aviator’s multiple problems with its in-car electronics display is dragging down the SUV’s predicted reliability score.

Hyundai, Kia and Toyota also performed well. The latter’s small car lineup helped it crack the top 10. Hyundai and Kia were also among the best mass-market brands.

The best premium brands are Genesis, Porsche and Lexus. BMW and Audi are rounded out the top-five. The rest of the top 10 are Asian: Mazda, Honda, Subaru and Acura. Hybrid cars scored better than fully electric vehicles, which suffered from numerous problems with their drivetrains.

2. Safety

PHMSA seeks comments or information on whether it is appropriate to expand the applicability of the current basic description of UN3268, “Safety devices, electrically initiated, 9,” to safety devices that are not designed primarily for use in transport vehicles. This expansion would allow these devices to be classified as Division 1.4G or Class 9, depending on their method of initiation, testing results, and other factors. What are the benefits and increased risks associated with such an expansion?

3. Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency of buildings, homes and appliances can reduce household energy costs, lower carbon emissions and ease the burden on the power grid. Modest behavior adjustments and structural inevestments can yield substantial energy savings on their own, or in conjunction with other policy approaches that provide financial incentives for flexible use or price signals that internalise the social cost of greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants from power generation.


Energy-using equipment standards and labeling programs (e.g., Energy Star) are a key instrument in meeting energy efficiency goals. By establishing consistent criteria for mandated or recommended efficiency levels, they allow consumers to compare models, communicate product superiority to prospective buyers, and stimulate research and development that introduces advanced technologies into the marketplace. They also ensure consistency and credibility in government claims about energy savings, and make willful non-compliance by manufacturers unacceptable and unprofitable.

4. Environment-Friendly

Environmentally friendly is a term that refers to products and processes that are environmentally safe. This means that they don’t emit harmful chemicals or use non-renewable energy sources. Many companies strive to be environmentally friendly in their factories and productions. This helps to reduce their carbon footprint and create a more sustainable environment for all life.

However, there are some outside factors that can prevent companies from being environmentally friendly such as financial crises. Luckily, these types of problems can be solved by implementing certain laws that allow for companies to be more environmentally friendly in their productions and factories.

For example, a company that uses biodiesel as fuel to power their trucks is considered to be environmentally friendly because it produces less carbon dioxide. This is because biodiesel is made from plant material rather than fossil fuels.
