American analytical firm J.D. Power has published a rating of the reliability of three-year-old cars. For the previous 8 consecutive years, Lexus remained the leader in this ranking, but this year it dropped to second place, losing to Genesis, which is Hyundai's premium brand.

J.D. Power is based on a survey of 33,555 owners of 2017 vehicles. The respondents named the number of breakdowns (choosing from 177 suggested options) that happened to their cars in the last 12 months. Results are calculated based on the number of reported problems per 100 vehicles sold. The lower the number, the higher the position of the car.

Final reliability rating
  • The young brand Genesis, which was ranked for the first time in the reliability rating, received 89 complaints about 100 cars. Compared to last year, Lexus improved its score from 106 to 100 points, but this was not enough to win. The top 5 includes Buick (103), Porsche (104) and Toyot (113).
  • The most unreliable brands have an average of two complaints per car. The outsiders were Land Rover (220 problems per 100 cars), Chrysler (214), Jaguar (186) and Volvo (185).

  • The averages for the market as a whole have improved over the year: the number of complaints against 100 cars fell from 136 to 134, which was the lowest in the 31-year history of the ranking. The greatest number of problems for car owners are delivered by multimedia systems.
  • There is also a record among the models: the Lexus ES sedan received only 52 complaints against 100 vehicles. And in the segment of compact cars, for the first time, an electric car - the Nissan Leaf hatchback - was at the top.
  • In some classes, Toyota has the most first places, including the premium Lexus. The winners are Lexus ES (best premium compact model), ToyotAvalon (full-size vehicle), Toyot4Runner (midsize SUV), Lexus GX (premium mid-size SUV), ToyotSienn (minivan) and ToyotTundr (full-size pickups).
