Seven Chevy Models Among Initial Quality Leaders
Jun 22nd, 2017 by AmyJR

How impressed are Chevy buyers with their new Chevrolets? If the J.D. Power 2017 Initial Quality Study is an indication, it’s safe to say that they are extremely impressed. Three Chevrolet models come out on the top of their segments and four more land within the top three of their respective segments.  The Chevy Silverado is a double winner, leading in both light-duty and heavy-duty segments. Chevy trucks excel in the midsize segment as well, where the Colorado placed second. If you’re looking for an SUV, Chevrolet has an award winner at both ends of the spectrum, as the Chevy Equinox places for compact SUVs and the Tahoe is #2 in large SUVs. But it isn’t just the big guys where Chevrolet excels – the Chevrolet Sonic also brought home the top Initial Quality award for small cars and the Chevy Cruze took second place among compacts. The J.D. Power Initial Quality Study is based on problems experienced by new car owners after 90 days of ownership with the segment leaders being the vehicles with the fewest reported issues. Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort, Lansing and Bradley has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a huge selection of these award winning vehicles.

Feb 23rd, 2017 by AmyJR

J.D. Power and Associates have just released the results of their 2017 Vehicle Dependability study and we are pleased to report that four different Chevrolet models have come out on top of their respective segments. The Chevy Camarohas earned their top ranking in the Midsize Sporty Car segment for a remarkable five years in a row. For the second year in a row, the Silverado HD was named the most dependable Large Heavy Duty Pickup. The Chevy Sonic landed at the top of the list for the Small Car segment and the Chevy Tahoe leads all Large SUVs.  This study, now in its 28thyear, ranks three-year-old vehicles based on problems experienced during the past 12 months by their original owners. “We find buyers are increasingly avoiding models with poor reputations for dependability, so manufacturers can’t afford to let quality slip, particularly on their best sellers,” said Dave Sargent, vice president, global automotive at J.D. Power. “While many expensive and niche vehicles do have excellent quality, the fact is that most consumers are shopping in the high-volume mainstream segments. The good news is that consumers don’t have to spend a lot of money to get a very dependable vehicle.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort and Lansing has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of these award-winning vehicles!
