Acura has been ranked 4th out of 31 brands in the J.D. Power 2014 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study(VDS).
“The study, now in its 25th year, examines problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of 2011 model-year vehicles. Overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality.”
While the overall average number of problems per 100 cars has increased for the first time since 1998, Acura saw a decrease in problems from last year’s study, dropping from 120 PP100 in 2013 to 109 PP100 in 2014.
The Acura RDX was awarded highest rank in the Compact Premium CUV segment, while the Acura MDX ranked in the top three of the Midsize Premium CUV segment.
