For 30 years, J.D. Power has conducted the annual Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS). The study asks original owners of 3-year-old vehicles what has gone right and what has gone wrong during the prior 12 months. This information is collected and analyzed, and the conclusions are published in the VDS.
Based on this data, J.D. Power creates Vehicle Dependability ratings. Expressed on a 10-point scale, these ratings quickly summarize a vehicle’s performance in the study, and serve as a way for consumers to quickly assess and understand how dependable a given make and model might be. Consumers can also use the ratings to compare vehicles when trying to decide which one to buy.
