Hyundai Motors Limited has been named No. 1 in CarMD’s Vehicle Index Manufacturer & Vehicle Reliability Rankings for its leadership in vehicle dependability.
Hyundai reportedly earned the prestigious honour for its lower than average repair costs and very low repair frequency among all carmakers.
“Hyundai earning the top spot in this year’s CarMD Vehicle Health Index shows our commitment to designing vehicles with strong durability, quality and reliability,” Frank Ferrara, Executive Vice President, Customer Satisfaction, Hyundai Motor America, said in a statement to the media.
He said, “When compared with other automakers, Hyundai owners had fewer trips to the repair shop and offering peace of mind to our owners for vehicle health.”
The CarMD Index ranks the top 10 manufacturers, top 100 vehicles, top three vehicles by vehicle category and common repairs by vehicle make.
The 2015 rankings identify the most reliable cars from more than 3,800 different models built over the last 20 years, with analysis of more than 251,000 reported occurrences between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015.
