A year ago, the 2010 and 2011 Elantra Touring had similar stats. Since then the stat for the 2010 has improved while that for the 2011 has worsened--end of the warranty blip? Recently front suspension repairs seem most common.

TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Honda Fit

2015 Honda Fit Reliability And Durability: Pros
YearComment
2015 I'm going to go out on a limb (if only a few feet) and predict that the new Honda Fit will remain among the most reliable cars you can buy. Why the lack of certainty? Redesigns can create problems where there were none before. Also, the third-generation Fit is hencho en Mexico. Except for the transmission--that's shipped across the Pacific from Indonesia. I don't ascribe much importance to where a car is manufactured in itself. Engineering and quality control processes--for components at least as much as final assembly--matter much more than the location of the assembly plant. But the Mexican plant is new with a green labor force, so initial cars might have been glitchy. On the tested car, the doors weren't as precisely aligned as in the typical Honda. Now that they have a year under their belts they've likely gotten their act together. Through the end of 2014 the new Fit scored pretty well in our car reliability survey. As has the also made-in-Mexico Versa Note, but I have less confidence in the Nissan's score owing to much smaller sample sizes and a less laudable previous generation. In both cases it's far too early to predict long-term reliability, but the Honda has the better track record. full 2015 Honda Fit review
