Lexus tops 2018 dependability rankings, FCA struggles, says JD Power

"The results of the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study demonstrate Kia's continued commitment to quality and in building world-class products that offer tremendous value to our customers", said Greg Silvestri, head of service operations, Kia Motors America (KMA).

Toyota Motor Corp.'s Lexus topped the chart as the most dependable brand for the seventh year in a row, followed by Porsche, according to J.D. Power's annual U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study, released Wednesday.

This year saw the first increase in dependability since 2013. "A 9% improvement is extremely impressive, and vehicle dependability is, without question, at its best level ever".

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is notorious for performing poorly in these types of studies and Chrysler was dead last with 211 problems per 100 vehicles.

That said, with a score of 192, Sargent noted that Fiat was the most improved brand, with a whopping 106 fewer problems, on average, than its vehicles had in the 2017 VDS.

Other brands showing sharp improvements include Kia, Nissan, Ford, and Dodge. For the Q3, it was notable since 2015 was its introductory year. The study was conducted in the fourth quarter of 2017. That included the Prius, the top-ranked Compact Car, and its Tacoma, the leading Midsize Pickup.

Porsche of Germany's Volkswagen AG, which tied with Lexus previous year, came second, followed by Buick of US auto giant General Motors Co.
