When you are shopping for a new vehicle, one of the top questions you should ask is “How it will perform over the next few years?” While some brands offer impressive warranty guarantees (like the Chevrolet Complete Care program that comes standard on new Chevy purchases) it’s still nice to know what is the most dependable car brand. We are pleased to say that Buick tops the charts in this regard, with three vehicles taking top honors, including the Buick Verano.
Buick Verano Most Dependable Vehicle for 2016
The J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability StudySM annually looks at how vehicles have faired over time. Have the maintenance costs been astronomical? Do the vehicles start breaking down after a couple of years? The study looks at owner-reported problems today for 3-year-old vehicles. The Buick Verano took first in the Compact Car segment, and was ranked as the industry’s most dependable vehicle. We’re excited to offer the 2016 model of this extremely dependable vehicle on our lot!
Buick LaCrosse and Encore Take Top Dependability Honors
The Buick Verano was not the only Buick vehicle to take top honors. The Buick LaCrosse was also recognized at the top of its Large Car segment, and in the Small SUV segment of this J.D. Powers study the Buick Encore also took the lead. This is the third recognition award for the 2013 Buick Encore coming from J.D. Powers. Previously it has received awards in the Initial Quality Study and the Automotive Performance Execution and Layout Study for the Sub-Compact CUV segment.
Overall, the Buick brand took third overall for dependability, beat out only by luxury nameplates like Lexus and Porsche. The GMC and Chevrolet brands also performed favorably in this study, ranking in the top ten of all brands for overall quality. We are so proud to offer these extremely dependable vehicles here at Craig Dunn Motor City.
