Hyundai is most reliable car brand, according to JD Power survey
Hyundai has topped the 2018 JD Power Survey as the most reliable car brand. The Korean manufacturer achieved the least faults per 100 vehicles in the study, which measures problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of vehicles in the UK after 12-36 months of ownership.
The most reliable 13 car brands in the UK were volume brands in the 2018 study, which determined dependability by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality.
Hyundai ranked highest in overall with a score of 78 PP100, with Suzuki second with 87 PP100, followed by Kia with 94 PP100.
Premium manufacturers fared the worst in the survey, with Mercedes-Benz - the best-performing premium brand - achieving 14th place in the table.
The 2018 UK Vehicle Dependability Study was based on responses from 13,536 owners of new vehicles registered from February 2015 through February 2017.
