ŠKODA tops the J.D Power Vehicle Dependability Study for second year

13/07/2016
​Milton Keynes: It’s official: ŠKODA ranks as the top automotive brand in the UK for vehicle dependability. The Czech manufacturer has recorded back-to-back victories in the J.D. Power UK Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) – with two models topping their sector for quality and reliability.

The study, now in its second year, measured problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of vehicles in the UK after 12-36 months of ownership. The findings were based on responses from more than 13,000 owners of 2013-2015 models.

J.D. Power examined 177 problem symptoms across eight categories: engine and transmission; vehicle exterior; driving experience; features/controls/displays (FCD); audio/communication/entertainment/navigation (ACEN); seats; heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC); and vehicle interior. Overall dependability was determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality.

ŠKODA ranked the highest for vehicle dependability with a score of 66 PP100 – an even better result than the brand recorded in 2015 and 13 points clear of its nearest rival. The overall industry average was 113 PP100.

The 2016 survey also studied vehicle dependability in key sectors and, once again, ŠKODA models were at the top. The Fabia was ranked at the most dependable car in the Small Car category, while the Yeti finished top of the Compact SUV sector. The Octavia also performed well, finishing second in the Compact Car category.

The ŠKODA Superb is celebrating its 15th anniversary: Since the first ŠKODA Superb in 2001, the traditional Czech manufacturer has produced around 900,000 vehicles of all three Superb generations. Since March 2015, more than 100,000 of these have been produced in the current third generation, which has successfully established itself in the automotive mid-class.
​​UK prices and specifications for the all-new ŠKODA Kodiaq have been announced ahead of its showroom debut early next year. ŠKODA’s first ever seven-seater SUV will start from just £21,495 (OTR) when ordering starts in November, and will be available from launch in four trim levels, five engine options, two and four-wheel drive, and a choice of manual or DSG gearboxes.​
​An expedition led by renowned British adventurer Alastair Humphreys is set to answer the question that has vexed explorers for centuries – does the Yeti exist? The adventure, which begins early next month, is backed by ŠKODA UK and will see a fleet of Yeti cars drive high into the Bhutan mountains to visit areas where sightings have been made.
​Winter may be approaching, but ŠKODA retailers across the country have launched a range of finance deals to keep the summer holiday spirit going. Thanks to low rate PCP finance, no minimum deposit and up to £2,000 of deposit contributions, ŠKODA's range of award-winning cars are now even more affordable. 
The recent world premiere of the new Kodiaq SUV may signal the start of ŠKODA’s broader SUV campaign, but the ŠKODA Yeti – the brand’s first SUV – is enjoying a rise in popularity. Now in its seventh production year, debuting in 2009, the ŠKODA Yeti has been one of the most successful compact SUVs ever.
ŠKODA’s global deliveries in August increased to 80,700 vehicles. Compared to the same period last year, this represents growth of 14.2% (August 2015: 70,700 vehicles). Thus, the traditional Czech brand has continued its growth trend. The top model ŠKODA Superb and the ŠKODA Rapid in particular contributed to the brand’s success.
