Peugeot has been listed as the most reliable car brand in JD Power’s fifth annual survey.
The 2019 UK Vehicle Dependability Study is based on responses from 11,530 owners of new vehicles registered between November 2015 and January 2018. The study measures the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles, with a lower score indicating greater reliability.
Peugeot ranked highest on the list overall with an impressively low score of 77 PP100. The triumph means Peugeot owners were most happy with their vehicle’s reliability, running costs and build quality.
The J.D Power Vehicle Dependability Survey was also split into eight segments, with the Peugeot 208 winning ‘Most Dependable Small Car’. Peugeot was handed the award as part of an award ceremony at the Science Museum in London on 9th May.
The study measures 177 problematic symptoms in various categories including: vehicle exterior, driving experience, features/controls/displays, audio/communication/entertainment/navigation, seats, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, vehicle interior & engine and transmission.
J.D Power is a global leader in consumer insights, advisory services, data and analytics. This high standing in the industry allows the company to help businesses drive customer satisfaction with their respected and trusted annual surveys.
“Long-term reliability has a direct impact on today’s sales and tomorrow’s brand loyalty. PEUGEOT did a great job in understanding the needs of its consumers, and therefore deserves to win the J.D. Power award for UK’s most dependable brand 2019.”
- Mark Lenrich, Head of Research at J.D Power Europe
“The J.D. Power survey is one of the most respected ownership surveys in the industry, so it means a lot to top the rankings not just once but twice. We’re committed to building vehicles with uncompromising quality, an instinctive driving experience and sharp design, and it’s great to see owners telling us they find all these characteristics when living with our vehicles year in year out.”
- David Peel, Managing Director of Peugeot UK
