    Buick is best mainstream brand for dependability...

    Chevy and Cadillac also beat the industry average. Buick rates above Porsche and compares well to Genesis and Lexus.

    The editor wouldn’t allow me to add links but I suggest CNET and JD Powers site,

    It's good to see GM improving. If you look at the rankings from Genesis at the top with 89 per 100 down to Cadillac at 131, that's really not too bad considering the spread of 89 to 220 and given all the other players coming in below them. Hiccup, then there's GMC clear down at 162. It's nice for GM with the mention of Encore, Regal, Equinox, Silverado and Tahoe and their segment awards.

    How does GMC end up so close to the bottom yet it has nothing in its lineup that Chevy doesn't have? I assume this is saying Chevy's equivalents with low scores are being offset by vehicles in their lineup that GMC doesn't sell.

    Either way, great showing for GM, except for GMC.

    I see Land Rover found the bottom again, I thought they had been doing a lot better the last several years.

    That's statistical surveys for you - too many questions dependent on expectation rather that an objective measure of reliability - buyers of more expensive brands within a group will expect better reliability so be more disappointed at any faults.

    I gave up on JD Power long ago because of this obvious flaw.

    I think GMC issues are related to the 8 speed transmission debacle. Canyon, Sierra, and Yukon all use it and make up a larger percentage of sales compared to Chevy.
