The reliability rating has been published by J. D. Power for several years. This time, to list the most reliable automakers, experts examined about a million reviews from car owners.

Specialists from J. D. Power, with the help of rank-and-file motorists, evaluated the reliability of various automotive brands over the past year. The experts took as a basis the number of breakdowns that owners of three-year-old cars had to face during 2019. It turned out that the Hyundai Motor premium sub-brand – Genesis became the most reliable brand for this indicator. One hundred cars with the logo of this brand accounted for 89 breakdowns. The second is the Japanese premium brand Lexus – after three years of operation, each car out of a hundred gave its owner at least one breakdown.

 Recall that this automaker previously regularly led the list of the most reliable brands.

 “Bronze” reliability rating goes to the American brand Buick – 103 damage per hundred cars. A step from the prize top-3 with the result of 104 malfunctions per 100 cars, the German company Porsche stopped. Toyota (100/113), Volkswagen and Lincoln follow – the last two brands showed the same statistics 100/116.
