Kia’s Sportage Ranked Top In Dependability

The Kia Sportage was ranked as the leader in the small SUV category in the JD Power 2015 Vehicle Dependability Study.
The industry-wide study examines issues experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of three-year old vehicles (2012 model year).
Overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100). Thus, a lower score reflects a higher long-term quality level.
The Sportage ranked first in a field of seven contenders with a score of 129 PP100.
This recognition for Sportage followed the model’s two consecutive J.D. Power Initial Quality Survey (IQS) awards in 2013 and 2014.
John Crowe, vice president, service & aftersale operations, Kia Motors America (KMA), said: “The Sportage is a clear example of how far the entire Kia model line-up has progressed.
“This kind of quality is tangible evidence of our long-term strategy to enhance the Kia ownership experience.”
VDS measures the long-term quality of vehicles, including new technologies and features currently available to buyers.
It includes 32 nameplates and 228 models, covering 177 specific problem symptoms grouped into eight major vehicle categories.
