The Hyundai Sonata

The Hyundai Sonata has been ranked the most dependable midsize car in the 2013 J.D. Power Study

The Hyundai Sonata recently received the honour of being named J.D. Power and Associates’ most dependable midsize car in their 2013 Vehicle Dependability Study, beating many leading competitors to clinch the title.

The internationally acclaimed annual study measures problems experienced by original owners of 3-year-old vehicles. To determine a vehicle’s dependability, no less than 202 specific problem symptoms, grouped into 8 major vehicle systems are measured in 100 vehicles (PP100). The vehicle with the lowest score would reflect the highest quality and as a result rank as most dependable.

According to the Director of Engineering and Quality for Hyundai Motor America, Erwin Raphael, “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.”
