Kia Shines Bright in J.D. Power’s 2023 Dependability Study

If you’re a Tulsa resident in the market for a new car, J.D. Power’s U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study can be a valuable resource. The annual survey evaluates the dependability of three-year-old cars in the US and ranks them based on problems reported. This information can help Tulsa car buyers make informed decisions about which vehicles are most reliable.

The industry-wide study examines problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year old vehicles. Overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles. The study was comprised of 30,062 completed surveys and examined how 2020 model-year vehicles are currently performing in terms of quality, component replacement, and appeal. The study covers 184 specific problem areas across nine major vehicle categories: seats, powertrain, interior, infotainment, features/controls/displays, exterior, driving experience, driving assistance, and climate.

J.D. Power recently revealed their latest 2023 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study, and for the third year in a row Kia has earned the designation as the number one mass-market brand. Three models, in particular, helped Kia ranked so high on the 2023 dependability study — the Kia Sportage, Kia Optima, and Kia Forte; each model earning the top spot in their respected segment.
