2017 Vehicle Dependability Study: Most Dependable Luxury Cars
The J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability StudySM (VDS) is conducted annually, surveying original owners of 3-year-old cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans to determine what has gone right and what has gone wrong from a design and defect perspective. The company gathers the information, analyzes it, and publishes its findings each year in the VDS.From these findings, J.D. Power formulates Power Circle Ratings that provide consumers with a visual representation of a vehicle’s performance in the VDS, as compared to other models in the same vehicle segment. Consumers who are considering a used-vehicle purchase can consult these ratings to make a more informed decision.This Most Dependable Luxury Cars guide includes those 2014 model-year vehicles that receive a Power Circle Rating of 4 or 5 out of a possible 5 for vehicle dependability after 3 years of ownership.
