Chevy Volt Tops J.D. Power Three-Year Dependability Study
The results from the 2014 J.D Power Vehicle Dependability Study show that only one plug-in vehicle was rated the highest in overall dependability in its class.
That vehicle, the 2011 Chevrolet Volt, topped the compact car category in the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study.
“This car reliability study measures problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year-old (2011 model year) vehicles, includes 202 different problem symptoms across all areas of the vehicle. Overall dependability is determined by the level of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality. The Vehicle Dependability Study is used extensively by vehicle manufacturers worldwide to help design and build better vehicles, which typically translates to higher resale values and higher customer loyalty.”
“The 2014 Vehicle Dependability Study is based on responses from more than 41,000 original owners of 2011 model-year vehicles after three years of ownership.”
Props to Chevrolet for making the most dependable (according to J.D. Power’s study) 2011 Model Year plug-in vehicle.
Curiously, the Nissan LEAF didn’t make the list. If it did, it would have been found in the “midsize car” category.
