2019 Vehicle Dependability: Most Dependable Luxury SUVs
On an annual basis for the past 30 years, J.D. Power publishes the Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS). This landmark study collects data about 3-year-old vehicles from the people who originally bought them. They share what has gone right and what has gone wrong during the 12 months leading up to the survey, and then J.D. Power analyzes the data and presents the findings to the automotive industry and consumers like you.
As a part of this process, J.D. Power assigns each vehicle in the study with a Vehicle Dependability score. This score summarizes the VDS findings into a single, easily understood data point, making it easier for consumers to identify those makes and models that are dependable, and offering a simple way to compare vehicles within a given segment.
This guide includes 2016 model year luxury SUVs. Each one receives a Vehicle Dependability score of 9 or 10 out of 10, making them the most dependable vehicles in the segment after three years of ownership.
