    9. Dodge


    Great used of the basement from the top of JD Power, Dodge goes up the slope, slowly but surely. After having been the worst brand according to the results of the winners of the 2016, it is passed to the fourth rank last year and is now ninth with 166 problems per 100 vehicles.

    8. Ram


    Always in the family of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Ram has not done better than Dodge with a harvest of 167 problems per 100 vehicles. It is still better than the 183 problems that had been identified in the study last year.

    7. Subaru


    The japanese cars usually have a reputation for reliability that is strong enough, but some of them continue to have problems. This is the case for Subaru, which happens to equal with Ram with 167 problems per 100 vehicles.

    6. Mitsubishi


    Like last year, Mitsubishi remains in the shallows of the charts with 173 problems per 100 vehicles. With Subaru, are the only two japanese brands to be included in the table of dishonour.

    5. Cadillac

    As the other group’s brands FCA, Jeep is a regular on the table of cancres JD Power. This year is no exception to the rule, whereas 188 problems per 100 vehicles have been listed.

    3. Fiat


    Worst brand of the industry according to the study of 2017, Fiat back slightly this year with 192 problems per 100 vehicles. It is still rather annoying, we agree.

    2. Land Rover


    Are you really surprised? Land Rover has made huge progress since its passage in the hands of Tata Motors, there are now 10 years old. Except that obviously, the reliability issues are not yet resolved.

    1. Chrysler
