According to its latest survey of more than 1.3 million vehicles owned by readers, Consumer Reports says Toyota and Honda still build the most reliable cars sold in the U.S.

The publication notes that General Motors has made big improvements in quality, so much so that its vehicles now rank ahead of those from luxury brands like BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi. Some 83 percent of Chevrolet vehicles, for example, rate at least average in reliability, which CR says is a 50-percent improvement from 2009.

CR also reports that Ford, including its Lincoln brand, now ranks at least average reliability for 90 percent of the vehicles it builds. Ford now leads Japanese brands such as Mazda and Nissan for overall reliability, by the CR study's results.

Among the other winners and losers in the new survey:

Toyota: Despite myriad recalls, vehicles like the Toyota Sienna and the Lexus LX top their categories for reliability.

Honda, Acura, Porsche and Scion: These four brands were rated most reliable overall by CR.

Infiniti: Each vehicle sold by the luxury brand rated average or better in the magazine's report.
