Fiat Chrysler brands made up four of the bottom spots on J.D. Power and Associates’ 2017 Vehicle Dependability Study.
J.D. Power ranks the automotive brands in its Vehicle Dependability Study by the number of problems reported per 100 vehicles. The study accounts for 177 potential problems across eight categories.
Fiat fared the worst in the study with a score of 298, followed by Jeep at 209. Infiniti helped split the FCA brands by ranking at 208, however it’s right back to it after that with Dodge scoring at 187 and Ram scoring 183. Chrysler was the best rated of the FCA brands at 159, which is just below the industry average of 151.
This latest ranking compounds with Consumer Reports’ 2016 Car Reliability Survey in which Dodge, Chrysler, Fiat and Ram made up the bottom four places. That survey also saw four FCA vehicles rank among the least reliable on sale, the Fiat 500L, Chrysler 200, Jeep Renegade and Ram 2500 HD.
