Cars, trucks, and SUVs you can count on

For those consumers who track J.D. Power and Associates’ annual dependability ratings with all the fervor footy fans reserve for FIFA world rankings, the 2013 study doesn’t reveal much jostling between the frontrunners. Lexus remains the most dependable nameplate by a sizable margin, followed by Porsche and then Lincoln, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz and Buick, respectively.The 2013 results are based on the market research firm’s survey of more than 37,000 original U.S. owners of 2010-model cars and trucks to document their quality lapses after three years of ownership. Across all makes, vehicle dependability improved 5 per cent compared to last year’s study, illustrating the industry’s relentless determination to deliver better-quality products and galvanize brand loyalty.Rather than revisit some familiar nameplates, let’s examine the least troublesome 2010 models in each of 15 popular market segments identified in the 2013 dependability study.
