Recently, J.D Power and Associates has ranked the Hyundai Sonata as the most dependable midsize car as part of their
2013 Vehicle Dependability Study.
Erwin Raphael, director of engineering and quality, Hyundai Motor America, has said:
“In one of the most competitive segments within the industry, Sonata places highest in its class. Hyundai is committed to providing customers with high-value vehicles that withstand the test of time. The quality and dependability of our models is important to reassuring owners that we care about their Hyundai experience beyond their initial purchase at the dealership.”
The J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study measures problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year-old (2010 model year) vehicles includes 202 specific problem symptoms grouped into eight major vehicle systems.
The study results include industry insights, model rankings in each of the car and light-truck segments, and full nameplate rankings. Overall dependability is determined by the level of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality.
The Hyundai Sonata is a beautifully designed car with high fuel efficiency. The Sonata sets the benchmark for midsize sedans offering sleek design, class-leading interior comfort, functionality and practicality all at an incredible high value.
