Cars are more reliable than ever, according to JD Power, as owners of three-year-old vehicles report fewer issues now than they have in the 31-year history of its vehicle-dependability study. 

For its 2020 rankings, JD Power collected responses from 36,555 owners of cars from the 2017 model year, measuring dependability a few years into ownership. In its first year in the study, Genesis ranked the highest among 32 brands, with 89 problems reported per 100 vehicles compared to an industry average of 134 problems per 100 vehicles.

These are the most reliable car brands based on those metrics, according to JD Power.
