By Jeff Youngs, February 05, 2014
On February 12, 2014, J.D. Power is scheduled to release its 2014 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS). The study, conducted annually for the past 25 years, measures the dependability of vehicles after three years of ownership.

In the 2013 Vehicle Dependability Study, the average number of problems per 100 vehicles, as reported by more than 37,000 original owners of 2010 model-year vehicles, was the lowest since the inception of the VDS in 1989. Additional key findings of the 2013 VDS included:
  • Fewer problems equates to greater brand loyalty among consumers
  • Domestic-brand vehicles were nearly as dependable as import-brand vehicles
  • New or redesigned models were more dependable than carryover models
  • Lexus ranked highest in vehicle dependability among all brands
  • Toyota ranked highest in vehicle dependability among mainstream brands
  • Land Rover owners experienced the greatest number of problems per vehicle among all brands
  • Dodge owners experienced the greatest number of problems per vehicle among mainstream brands

Details associated with the J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study,SM which measures dependability of 2011 model-year vehicles, will be available on and after February 12, 2014.
