The list of companies making the most unreliable cars
The top 10 automakers are producing the most unreliable model: 2019 J. D. Power
Studying the market and clients ‘ attitudes to industrial products, the US company, J. D. Power released its annual study on the reliability of cars, this time for 2019. In the analysis, as usual, hit the manufacturers based on the reliability of their products using the data obtained on the basis of a survey of consumers. The owners, judging by the reporting, not very happy with their cars.
Are there any changes in the reliability of cars in 2019?
As reported in the final ranking of 2019, research publications J. D. Power show certain changes in the reliability of vehicles compared to last year’s period. Constantly falling in a rating of brands have swapped places in the list, the competition has intensified, and interviewed the owners of the vehicles presented studies the market researchers a few surprises.
Recall that in the study, J. D. Power conducts a study of the attitude of the owners of new vehicles after three years of ownership in various categories, including:
With the help of a survey conducted to count the number of problems (optional breakdowns) per 100 vehicles. Then J. D. Power ranks brands based on this indicator, assigning them a rating of ‘PP100’. The higher the score, the more problems experienced by the owners of vehicles of this brand, so the lower the number the better.
Below you will see a list of the Top 10 brands, under the worst results PP100, according to J. D. Power this year. It should be noted that some minor problems with the technology such as the muffled system of voice recognition or a slower-than-usual screen infotainment system are also considered to be a “problem” in this study.
So being on the list of “worst reliability vehicle” necessarily says that the car will fall apart immediately after leaving the gate of the dealership. Most likely, from the factory or very soon after the start of operation may have problems with the technology, familiar to the users that darkens the operation and is a constant source of annoyance to users.
Here is a list of the least reliable brands of 2019, according to J. D. Power data.
GMC is a newcomer in the list of the most unreliable brands, standing on the tenth step, the final assessment rating PP100 161.
Another American brand from GM in this rating. Cadillac has an average rating on their models PP100 166 this year. This improvement compared to its last year’s estimate of 186 points, but still not enough to improve positions.
Jeep also ranked as one of the most unreliable automakers, PP100 167 this year. Compared with figure P100 2018 188 also shows improvement. You will see many brands of FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) in such lists. The automaker even tried in court to fight the shadow on it similar reliability ratings like J. D. Power, but to no avail.
English Jaguar also published in the rating with an index PP100 168 this year. Experts actually surprised that he didn’t appear in this list in 2018. Does the Jaguar can not overcome small problems with the endurance of their vehicles.
Acura is an amazing car manufacturer in this list, with a PP100 rating 171. Last year it was not as one of the 10 least reliable brands, according to J. D. Power. It’s amazing to see Acura here because its parent brand Honda usually takes a very high place from the point of view of reliability. Perhaps it all comes down to the fact that the two brands use different infotainment system or the interface? Or the owners put before the Acura too high expectations? All this is strange.
Another FCA brand in this list, the Ram, was on the 5th place with 171 problem per 100 vehicles – worse than last year when he made the list with a PP100 rating of 167.
Dodge (again FCA) became the fourth, with a PP100 score of 178, which is worse than his record 2018 166 points.
Open the three antiliderov
Volvo ranks third in the list with a score of PP100 204, which is much worse than its rating 2018 162 points. Volvo is not what it was 20 years ago.
2. Land Rover
Second on the list was Land Rover with the PP100 figure 221. Land Rover has long been perceived by buyers as a “bucket of bolts”, even jokes on the subject of writing. But favorite brand of Queen’s English not even thinking to correct the situation. The problem with cars Land Rover occur not only with the infotainment virtual shells.
The first place among the worst – Fiat signed their incompetence received 249 points per 100 vehicles this year, which is another big downgrade of the automaker compared to the 2018 year, when he was honored with 209 points problems per 100 vehicles. But the worst result was published in 2017, when the Fiat was a critical score – 298 problems per 100 vehicles.
