    JD power vehicle-first three years of vehicle ownership

    Lexus leads J.D. Power dependability for 14th straight year - A****log

    Not a lot of change but a few surprises.

    Lexus is tops for the 14th year in a row and has 6 segment leaders-Not a surprise

    A few that surprised me:

    Monte Carlo is the top midsize sport car. Where did that come from?

    Mercury #2

    Toyota #4-I thought they would do worse. I kept hearing that they were having growing pains. Since these are 2005 cars maybe the problems will show up in a couple of years.

    Jaguar #10-They used to be near the bottom

    Hyundai #13-This doesn't surprise me but it really does show that a company can turn completely around. Kia and Hyundai for the first few years were always in last. Looks like Kia still has some work.

    You also have to think about how many models the company has and it's ranking. New models can really screw up your numbers if you just have 2-3 models like Porsche,Mini, etc


    One thing to keep in mind is that the whole industry is getting better. A car that's middle of the pack today would be near the top 10 years ago.

    It's interesting that Lexus is tops and Toyota seems to be droping considering Lexus is a pimped out Toyota.
