Suzuki Alto rated most dependable city car

J.D. Power has named the Suzuki Alto the most dependable city car in the 2015 UK Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS).

The study looks at issues experienced by car owners in the past 12 month period after 12-36 months of ownership. 177 problem areas across 8 categories are examined and scores are allocated according to the number of issues per 100 vehicles (PP100), with the lowest scores reflecting the best dependability.

Suzuki ranks 3rd overall with 86 PP100 compared to the industry average of 114 PP100. Suzuki joins 7 other volume manufacturers in the top 10, with premium manufacturers occupying the other 2 spots.

Aftersales Director, Denis Houston comments. “The results of the latest J.D. Power survey are very encouraging, and demonstrate Suzuki’s commitment to building reliable, dependable cars. It is great to hear that customers are satisfied with their purchases 12 months into owning their cars and we hope to continue this trend with the rest of our range.”
