Experts agree – these GM vehicles provide award-winning reliability AND value

Every year, J.D. Power analyzes data to compile a list of the most reliable vehicles you can buy. They rate vehicles using statistical data from Initial Quality Studies and past Vehicle Dependability Study results. The resulting scores are then ranked to provide you with a list of the most reliable vehicles for each model year.

While they’ve released data for 2019 models, we’re going to focus on the 2018 list for this blog post. Many dealerships (including SVG Urbana) have holdover 2018 models in stock that can be purchased with fantastic discounts -- providing exceptional value for a brand new vehicle. Likewise, if you’re looking to save money, looking at a year-old pre-owned model with a few miles will save you thousands of dollars.

GM fans will be pleased to know that many of the 2018 vehicles awarded the “Most Reliable” title from J.D. Power are Chevrolets and Buicks. With the exceptional deals at SVG Urbana, these vehicles will serve you for years to come with reliability and value. Let’s take a look at some of the winners.
