JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The most influential source when people look to buy a car is Consumer Reports magazine. 

They do extensive testing in a test track in Connecticut and they track data from over one million respondents on which cars are reliable and which ones are dependable.

One of the weirdest cars in the marketplace, the Tesla S, an all-electric 
sports car, gets Consumer Reports' highest recommendation and is also on its recommended to buy list with an incredibly high score.

But, do you know who is no longer recommended by consumer reports? I don't know if this has ever happened.

One of the top selling automobiles in the country and the world is the Toyota Camry. Why? The Camry as along with a few other Toyotas was yanked from the Consumer Reports recommended to buy list because they did not do well in a particular crash test.

Occupants were not necessarily safe. Toyota says they're going to work on it really quickly to make the Camry and other Toyotas safe for you.

But until they do, you may want to follow Consumer Reports' guidance.
