There is no "reliability" for science. It is accepted as TRUE until someone shows it to be FALSE. This is why falsifiability is an absolute requirement for science.
There also is no "supportability," "sustainability," "maintainability," "dependability," etc... none of the "ilities" apply to science models and Consumer Reports will not be rating any models in the near future.
