's Ford and Lincoln brands continued their plummet in Consumer Reports' annual Auto Reliability Survey released Monday. The consumer magazine cited problems with the Dearborn automaker's new vehicles and its problematic MyFord and MyLincoln Touch infotainment systems.

"Ford's bumpy road can be seen in the numbers," Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, said in a statement. "Sixty percent of Ford-branded models and half of Lincolns were below average in predicted reliability, and none placed above average."

Ford finished 27th among 28 car brands. Lincoln finished 26th. Survey findings are based on owner experiences with 1.2 million vehicles.
