The Most Dependable Models by Segment in the U.S.

The J.D. Power 2020 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study was released today. Let’s have a look at the most dependable models by segment.

This year’s J.D. Power U.S. vehicle dependability study marks the 31st anniversary of the yearly study. The study consists of measuring the number of problems per 100 vehicles original owners of their three-year-old vehicles can experience over the past 12 months. The lower the number, the higher the quality.

Despite the increased adoption of complex vehicle technology, dependability continues to improve,” said Dave Sargent, vice president of global automotive at J.D. Power. “There’s no question that three-year-old vehicles today are better built and more dependable than same-age vehicles were in previous years. However, the rapid introduction of technology is putting increased pressure on dependability, so it would not be surprising to see problem levels plateau, or even increase, over the next few years.

That being said, here’s the list of the highest-ranked model by segment according to the J.D. Power 2020 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study:
