When the salesman talks to you about dependability, many would - be new car owners nod their head, without feeling confident enough to really ask what dependability means. Well to help people understand car dependability, a good measure is to understand the annual J.D. Power and Associates' Vehicle Dependability Study – an industry benchmark since 1990, which focuses on problems experienced by original owners of 3 year old cars.

This study me asures car reliability by analysing problems experienced over the past 12 months of ownership in such areas as: features and controls; engine and transmission; entertainment and navigation; heating and cooling; the overall driving experience, and more. In the dependability methodology. Overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality.

The good news for Toyota fans is that Toyota continues to be ranked as one of the most dependable vehicles, ranking third highest in terms of overall vehicle dependability with a rating of 111 PP100 (111 problems experienced per 100 vehicles) versus the 89 PP100 rating of the brand on the number one spot. The industry average is at 147 PP100.

For individual models, Toyota Corolla is ranked the highest in terms of vehicle dependability among compact cars, with the Toyota Yaris ranking highly. Other trustworthy cars were the Camry for mid - sized cars and the Avalon if you are eyeing a large car for the family. When it comes to minivans, Toyota Sienna is considered to be the most dependable among other cars in the same range. There are also many reliable Toyota cars you can find when you prefer a pick - up, an SUV or an MPV.
