When buying a new car, you’re making a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Vehicles are a big investment, and it’s likely that your new purchase will be the car you drive for the next several years. That’s why many consumers are interested in who makes the most dependable vehicles. According to a recent study done by J.D. Power — GM vehicles are some of the most dependable around!
Are GM Vehicles Dependable?
J.D. Power’s Vehicle Dependability Study gathered data for 2013 model year vehicles and looked at what happens within the first three years under the original owner. The categories that are looked at include: the exterior, features, seats, interior, driving experience, audio/entertainment/navigation, HVAC, and engine/transmission.
For the second year in a row, the GM brand has received the most segment awards for the dependability study. Infact, four Chevy vehicles ranked as segment leaders — the most of any brand — and the Buick Verano was ranked as the most dependable vehicle in the entire industry. In total, GM had 11 models place in the top three of their segments.
