J.D. Power and Associates have published the 2013 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study which is topped by Lexus.

Owners of three-year-old cars were asked to mention the problems they had with their vehicles in the last 12 months. The study consists of 2010MY cars and the overall dependability has been determined by the number of issues per 100 cars (PP100), with a lower score meaning a higher quality.

The average carryover model scored 133 PP100, while new or redesigned models had 116 PP100. Those cars which received minor modifications scored 111 PP100, while the overall average stands at 126 PP100, representing the lowest score since 1989 when the first study was issued.

Lexus is on top with only 71 PP100, followed by Porsche with 94 PP100 and Lincoln/Toyota with 112 PP100. The biggest jump is Ram who moved 20 positions up, ending in the top 10 compared to last year when it was near the bottom of the list. Scion went down by 13 positions from 5th to 18th, while other automakers like Audi, Cadillac, Mitsubishi and Volvo also went down the list significantly.
