J.D. Power auto reliability survey: Lexus bags top spot; Fiat last
On Wednesday, consulting firm J.D. Power and Associates revealed the results of its annual auto reliability survey which showed that the most dependable car brand is Lexus; while the least dependable is Fiat.
It is for the fourth year in a row that the Lexus brand has bagged the top rank in J.D. Power’s auto reliability survey. For the survey, the consulting form chiefly evaluated how owners, after three years of ownership of their cars, rate their cars in terms of quality and dependability.
According to the results of the survey, in which participants were questioned about the problems they had experienced in their cars over the last one year, Lexus owners reported 89 problems per 100 vehicles; while the owners of the worst performing brand, Fiat, 273 problems per 100 vehicles. The industry average was 147 problems.
With the auto reliability rankings in the J.D. Power survey largely hinging on high-tech features offered by different car brands, Buick bagged the second spot in the rankings; followed by Toyota and Cadillac in the third and fourth spots respectively. Honda and Porsche tied for the fifth spot.
Meanwhile, so far as the worst performers in the J.D. Power auto reliability survey are concerned, Fiat ranked right at the bottom of the rankings; with Land Rover, Jeep, Mini and Dodge rounded out the bottom five.
