Lexus Named Top Brand in 2014 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study

Lexus LS JD Power

Lexus absolutely dominated the study, which examines problems experienced during the past year by owners of 2011 model-year vehicles.

Each brand’s overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality — here are the overall scores:

    No surprises here! With Lexus injecting some LFA DNA in their new products now, watch out BMW, many more conquest buyers will cross over to Lexus! BTW, no surprise how poorly Audi fared, below industry average.
