Winning!
The Toyota Camry surpasses the Honda Civic, Honda Accord, Toyota Corolla and Ford Focus when it comes to reliability, a consumer products website announced this morning.

A report by San Mateo-based Fixya reveals the Focus is seen by owners as the most problem prone, the Accord racks up costly transmission problems, and the Civic and Corolla share stop-and-go braking and acceleration issues.

Since June 2005, Fixya has served as a site where community members can ask and answer questions about various consumer products. "The Test of Time" report is based on data from 30 million users regarding those models of cars sold over the past 10 years, according to Fixya officials.
