Domestic brands make gains in J.D. Power study
Five domestic automobile brands — including four owned by General Motors Co. — cracked the top 10 in this year's J.D. Power & Associates' U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study. It's the first time more than three domestic nameplates have made the top 10.
The study named Lexus as the most dependable brand for the fourth straight year. But GM's Buick (2nd place), Cadillac (4th), Chevrolet and GMC (both tied for 10th) all ranked in the top 10, as did Ford's luxury brand, Lincoln (7th place). Last year, only Cadillac, Lincoln and Buick made the cut.
GM and Toyota tied for the most segment awards, with each picking up seven awards for specific models.
The J.D. Power study was more good news for GM, coming a day after Buick broke into the top 10 to become the only domestic make in Consumer Reports
