Christian Wardlaw | Feb 22, 2017
Participants in the annual J.D. Power U.S. Vehicle Dependability StudySM (VDS) are the original owners of 3-year-old vehicles and they report problems related to design and defects. By analyzing this data, J.D. Power identifies what has gone right and what has gone wrong with these cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans. Each year, the company’s findings are published in the VDS.To provide consumers with an easily understood, visual representation of the findings, J.D. Power calculates Power Circle Ratings to convey a model’s performance in the VDS, relative to its competitors. Consumers can then make smarter decisions about the used vehicles they buy.
