First it was JD Power and now Consumer Reports is getting in on the MyFord Touch bashing. CR has just published their 2011 Reliability Ratings Survey and Ford took a serious dive thanks to MyFord Touch and the Powershift Transmission.

Is it fair for CR to label a car unreliable due to an annoying stereo and a moderately clunky-at-low-speed transmission?
