"All FCA US brands improved their scores year-over-year in J.D. Power's 2018 Vehicle Dependability Study, with the exception of the Chrysler Brand", FCA U.S said in a statement.

The 2018 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study is based on responses from 36,896 original owners of 2015 model-year vehicles after three years of ownership.

This year saw the first increase in dependability since 2013.

In a unusual occasion in football, referee Isasa Sy awarded five penalties in the game, four of which were to hosts Kotoko. Amos Frimpong's chose to take the next penalty, but his spot kick was saved by Chansel Massa in goal for Cara.

"For the most part, automotive manufacturers continue to meet consumers' vehicle dependability expectations", J.D. Power vice president of global automotive Dave Sargent said in a press release.

For a seventh consecutive year, Lexus ranked highest in overall vehicle dependability among all brands, with a score of 99 problems per 100 vehicles. Porsche ranks second with 100 PP100. Fiat was the most improved brand, while Infinity made the biggest one-year move by going from 29th place to fourth. Kia, Dodge (166 PP100) and Nissan (133 PP100) had their best finishes ever in the study. Nissan itself also had its best-ever ranking.

Toyota Motor Corp. models take home six of the 19 segment awards in this year's study-the most for an individual automaker.

While many studies look at the quality of vehicles soon after they roll off the showroom floor, the real question is how they hold up after a few years on the road. The Lexus CT, Lexus ES, Lexus GS, Lexus RX, Toyota Prius and Toyota Tacoma all earn category awards in the 2018 VDS.

Porsche of Germany's Volkswagen AG, which tied with Lexus past year, came second, followed by Buick of USA auto giant General Motors Co. The study was fielded in October-December 2017.

The Dodge Challenger, Ford Super Duty, Ford Expedition, Honda Odyssey, Hyundai Tucson, Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class, and Audi Q3 also were singled out for segment awards. In fact, Kia has led the industry overall for the last two years in Power's Initial Quality Study. Established in 1968, J.D. Power is headquartered in Costa Mesa, Calif., and has offices serving North/South America, Asia Pacific and Europe.
