Luxury car owners are more satisfied

If you’re shelling out big bucks for a premium car, you’re quite right to expect premium customer care. The good news is, according to global research firm J.D. Power, that’s exactly what most people are getting. Its 2018 Australia Customer Survey for Luxury Vehicles spoke with 511 luxury vehicle owners who purchased their car between March 2013 and August 2018, and had it serviced at an authorised dealer between March 2017 and August 2018.

2015 J.D. Power dependability study: Lexus on top; Bluetooth, voice recognition most cited problems

The 2015 J.D. Power dependability study has named Lexus as the most reliable brand for the fourth year running. This year's study is based on the experiences of 34,000 US owners of 2012 model year vehicles, meaning that many of these cars were purchased in 2011. The top two issues reported in this year's survey were Bluetooth pairing and voice recognition systems misinterpreting users' commands. This closely aligns with the findings J.D. Power's 2014 initial quality survey.
