J.D. Power and Associates have just released the results of their 2017 Vehicle Dependability study and we are pleased to report that four different Chevrolet models have come out on top of their respective segments. The Chevy Camarohas earned their top ranking in the Midsize Sporty Car segment for a remarkable five years in a row. For the second year in a row, the Silverado HD was named the most dependable Large Heavy Duty Pickup. The Chevy Sonic landed at the top of the list for the Small Car segment and the Chevy Tahoe leads all Large SUVs. This study, now in its 28thyear, ranks three-year-old vehicles based on problems experienced during the past 12 months by their original owners. “We find buyers are increasingly avoiding models with poor reputations for dependability, so manufacturers can’t afford to let quality slip, particularly on their best sellers,” said Dave Sargent, vice president, global automotive at J.D. Power. “While many expensive and niche vehicles do have excellent quality, the fact is that most consumers are shopping in the high-volume mainstream segments. The good news is that consumers don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a very dependable vehicle.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of these award-winning vehicles!
