For two years in a row, Consumer Reports ranked an FCA brand as the worst in terms of owner satisfaction, performance, reliability, and safety. Among 34 brands, Fiat came dead last, according to USA Today. And that wasn't the only hard hit for the company.

Meanwhile, not a single one of its auto brands made the top ten list (though Chrysler almost squeaked in at number 11), which was headed by Hyundai Motor Groups Genesis, not good, Fiat Chrysler, not good.

Meanwhile, the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) 2018 automobile report named Chrysler the worst number 30 of 30 brands and Dodge and Fiat were 28th and 26th, respectively.

Chrysler was fourth out of 30 brands on Consumer Reports ranking of owner satisfaction, so drivers must think they're doing something right. Do your research on the specific model you're looking at, and don't knock it (or buy it) til you've tried it on the road.
