Lexus Dominates J.D. Power Dependability Study

For the 14th year straight, Lexus has topped the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, and they did it in style. Take a look at this chart:

Lexus JD Power Dependability Study Results

This study measures the consumer problems on three-year-old vehicles. The substantial gap between Lexus and their next closest competitor illustrates an impressive 25 problem drop over 2007, when Lexus tied with Buick with 145 problems per 100 vehicles.

What’s more, six Lexus’ managed to lead their respective categories — the ES 330, GX 470, IS 300, LS 430, LX 470 and SC 430 all won best-of-class, and the GS 300/430 and RX 350 both placed second behind the ES 330 & GX 470 respectively. For those counting, that’s every vehicle in the Lexus line-up. Very impressive.
