Power dependability study below.

Chevy Wins Big When it Comes to Dependability

When it comes to dependability, the J.D. Power survey is the one to trust. This study polls over 30,000 drivers who own vehicles from the last three years, in order to collect data on dependability. Drivers are asked to report any issues in eight different automotive areas. The vehicles and brands that have the least issues reported can be considered the most reliable—these are the vehicles that will give you the least trouble, and will continue to perform without issue for years.

General Motors won big this year with a total of eight category wins—more than any other automaker. The Chevy brand made up half of those wins, with Buick, and GMC taking up the remaining four. Overall, the Chevrolet brand clocked in at 125 problems per 100 vehicles in the first three years of ownership. That’s well above the industry average of 152 problems per 100 vehicles. It’s worth noting that both Buick and GMC—other General Motors Brands—landed ahead of Chevy in the top 5.

In the category specific ratings, the Chevrolet Malibu won the midsize car category, the Chevy Camaro won the midsize sporty car rating, the Chevy Silverado HD won the large heavy duty pickup ratings, and the Chevrolet Equinox won the compact SUV ratings. You can bet that any one of those vehicles made since 2013 will offer unbeatable reliability.
