Consumer Reports isn't worth the paper it's printed on.
I've got a 2012 and besides the standard recalls and some TSBs, I've only had a window regulator go out and a water pump.
Absolutely no other issues.
I've got 35k miles and run A/T tires and yet I can still get 25mpg on the highway (V6 obviously).
Oh, and I've got the Laredo X which means I have more electronic stuff than the base Laredo.
I would question why a 2011 would have almost 100k miles already. 50k would seem more normal.
