ŠKODA has been named the UK’s most dependable brand in a new JD Power study.
The inaugural 2015 UK Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) asked owners to report problems with their new cars – from serious breakdowns to troublesome in-car entertainment issues.
Once analysed, the results gave ŠKODA a clear victory, comprehensively outscoring luxury brands such as Jaguar and BMW.
The study, which focused on new cars built between April 2012 and March 2014, used owner data to generate an overall dependability score for each brand. ŠKODA’s score of 77 was the lowest in the survey, with the industry average of 114.
Commenting on the survey, Alasdair Stewart, Director of ŠKODA UK said: “As this study shows, our build quality is the envy of the industry, and I’m delighted that this has been recognised.”
