Hyundai Tucson and Santa Fe Ranked 1st and 2nd Most Dependable by J.D. Power
Hyundai’s Tucson received the distinct honor of most dependable Small SUV by J.D. Power in their 2018 Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS). Released today, the annual Vehicle Dependability Study shows Tucson ranked highest in its class, beating out leading competitors.
The Tucson offers sporty styling, outstanding efficiency and cutting-edge safety technologies. Overall, Hyundai scored an impressive sixth-place finish in the entire industry and third-best in the non-premium category, lowering its PP100 by nine problems. The Hyundai Santa Fe also ranked second in its segment.
The study, now in its 29th year, examines problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of 2015 model-year vehicles. Overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality. The study covers 177 specific problems grouped into eight major vehicle categories.
