Chevy wins J.D. Power Dependability Award
In a consumerist economy, it’s hard to decide which product is the best. That’s where companies like J.D. Power come in. J.D Power Company is a global research marketing company that was founded in 1968. The company has been performing the J.D. Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) for 29 years, and Chevrolet just made it towards to the top of their list!
A way that J.D. Power calculates which brand we can trust the most is by studying how many problems their cars have per every 100 cars. Out of all the Chevrolet models there are about 124 problems out of every 100 cars, in comparison to the top most reliable brand, Lexus, who had 99 problems out of every 100 cars. This ranked Chevrolet fifth overall, declaring the brand more dependable than Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, and around 30 other internationally known brands.
Winning for most dependable midsize SUV is the Chevy Traverse. This baby seats up to eight people comfortably, won best-in-class max cargo space, and has up to 14 available safety features including forward collision alert and surround vision cameras.
The Malibu is another one on the list, bringing home another award that proves Chevy’s commitment to reliability. In addition to this JD Power recognition, the Malibu has been declared the Best Midsize Car for Families and was named a 2017 IIHS Top Safety Pick. The car has been around almost as long as the brand has, experiencing many extreme makeovers and growing right alongside technology. The Chevy Equinox took the title for the Most Durable Mid Size Crossover, a newer model following in the footsteps of the Malibu.
The most reliable Large Light Pick up truck went to the Chevy Silverado, making if the fifth and final car to receive this award out of the Chevrolet lineup! The 2018 Dependability Award is a huge honor, and Chevy could not be more proud to be towards the top of that list!
D. Power doesn’t just study product durability, but customer service as well as creating a blank ecosystem of buyers and sellers. On top of that award, Chevrolet has been named the most awarded and fastest growing brand the last four years overall. Stop by your Ray Chevrolet dealer to experience their service!
