How Do You Find J.D. Power Car Ratings?

J.D. Power automotive rankings are listed on jdpower.com. From the home page open the Ratings & Awards section and select Automotive or choose a particular vehicle type, such as SUV, sedan, truck, van or coupe. Vehicles are ranked by brand as well as by category.

J. D. Power ranks vehicles by using the results of three consumer studies: Vehicle Dependability Study, Initial Quality Study and an APEAL study. The Initial Quality Study and the APEAL study, look at the vehicle after 90 days of ownership. The Initial Quality Study examines owner reported problems, and the APEAL study examines what customers like about their car. The dependability study studies 3-year old cars that have had only one owner. The study looks at problems that occurred over the past 12 months.
