CARS.COM — Honda and its Acura luxury division topped Cars.com’s 2016 Worry-Free Index, scoring three of the top four spots, while Ford made its strongest showing to date. The Acura MDX SUV jumped four spots from its 2015 rank to top the index as the most worry-free car for 2016. Acura’s smaller RDX SUV, meanwhile, leaped 13 spots to land at No. 2. The Toyota Highlander and Honda Odyssey ranked third and fourth, respectively, while three Ford models — the Mustang sports car, F-150 pickup truck and Fusion sedan — took fifth, sixth and seventh.
It’s Ford’s strongest showing yet. In the WFI’s three-year history, only the MKZ Hybrid sedan from Ford’s Lincoln division made the list, and that was two years ago. The Mustang, F-150 and Fusion are the first Fords to make it.
