Consumer Reports has named Honda and Subaru best all-around vehicle makers in its annual auto issue, marking the fourth consecutive year Honda won top marks from the influential magazine.

The ratings are based on the magazine's average road test scores and predicted reliability scores.

Chrysler fared the worst in the pack, though Consumer Reports recommended one of its vehicles, the Ram pickup. It did not recommend any Chrysler vehicles last year.

Honda and Subaru, both Japanese car makers, tied for first with an overall score of 77 out of 100 points in Consumer Reports' ranking.

They were followed by Toyota and Hyundai. Nissan and Volkswagen tied for fourth with a score of 72.
