At this point, no one should question the impeccable engineering of the luxury vehicles built by Lexus. They’ve been delighting drivers for well over a decade, and they’ve been outshining other models in industry analyses left and right. So it should come as little surprise that Lexus came out on top of J.D. Power’s latest study — the brand won the last four, after all.

J.D. Power just released its 2016 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study, in which the company requests feedback from many thousands of drivers and evaluates the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (or PP100). J.D. Power then assigns a PP100 score to various automakers in order to rank them: the lower the score, the better the quality and the higher the rank. This year, the brains behind the study incorporated feedback from 33,560 owners of 2013 model-year vehicles and grouped the 177 specific problem symptoms they heard about into eight different categories.

The industry average this year was 152 PP100. Lexus scored 95 PP100, which was way under the average and the lowest score of all nameplates studied. The brand also won big with segment honors for the Lexus ES and GS sedans, as well as the Lexus GX SUV. This is the fifth consecutive year that Lexus topped the dependability study, so it’s clear that the company knows how to construct a quality vehicle.
