Consumer reports is shit according to customers. Reviews say ratings contain inaccuracies and mention unauthorized auto renews and difficulty in cancelling subscriptions.

I gave up my Consumer Reports subscription years ago.

Yep, has happened to me.
Also donated like $20 one year for some BS. They hound me every few weeks asking for another donation.

Consumer Reports is up there in legitimacy with CNN.

lots of infotainment technical issues. Does your car start, drive and blow heat when its -30° outside? Doesn't matter because iPhone wont sync on this unreliable POS.

Mustang is the least reliable Ford car? Strange, I've owned four and still own two 17 year old Mustangs and haven't had any major issues with them. Even the Cobra which I used to race at the Autobahn in Joliet has been fine. I can count on one hand any issues I've had and most are normal age related things.

Have I just been lucky 4 times?

their data is probably ok, they probably just have a shitty methodology, which there's really no excuse for. i'm assuming that phone not connecting to bluetooth and engine locked up are around equal weighting. they should really break it down into categories or something, like drivetrain and total inconvenience/visits or something like that.
