2016 Model Year Studied
Research firm J.D. Power has been producing its annual U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study for the past 30 years — a milestone anniversary for a study that automakers take seriously and consumers recognize and value. The 2019 study examines problems experienced in the last 12 months by original owners of 2016 model-year vehicles, with overall dependability determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles — PP100. A lower score indicates higher dependability. This year J.D. Power reports that overall dependability improved 4 percent compared to 2018 — however, the level of improvement is down compared to last year. The 2019 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study is based on responses from more than 32,000 original owners of 2016 model-year vehicles after three years of ownership. The study was conducted from October through December of 2018.
