J.D. Power is well-known with its annual US vehicle reliability study, which attempts to rank car manufacturers based on reliability using data from consumer surveys.
J.D. Power released this week's 2019 list, which showed some minor changes in vehicle reliability last year.
For the study, J.D. Power examines original vehicle owners after three years of ownership on various categories, including exterior, interior, seating, engine / transmission, driving experience, audio / navigation and control / displays. The test measures the number of problems encountered on 100 vehicles, such as J.D. Power then ranked the brands on the basis of this indicator by assigning them a rating of "PP100". The lower the score, the fewer problems the car owners have of that brand. Simple!
