The Kia brand made history just a few short weeks ago by receiving its first ever Vehicle Dependency Study award from J.D Power! The Vehicle Dependency Study analyzes issues encountered within a year stretch for 3-year old vehicles. Dependability is determined by the total amount of problems experienced for every 100 vehicles. The marvelous Kia Sportage claimed the honors with the highest ranking among competitors. The score given to the Kia Sportage signifies a remarkably high level of long term quality. The Kia Sportage certainly deserves the recognition as there are few vehicles in the world today that can compare!

It’s always great to see it when a brand receives credit that is very well deserved. The Kia brand has continuously produced top-tier vehicles year after year. The rise to popularity could easily be attributed to designing vehicles that are built to last a lifetime.

“We believe the results of the J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study demonstrate Kia’s on-going commitment to quality and obsession with craftsmanship in building our world-class products,” said John Crowe, vice president, service & aftersale operations, Kia Motors America (KMA).  “The Sportage is a clear example of how far the entire Kia model line-up has progressed, and this kind of quality is tangible evidence of our long-term strategy to enhance the Kia ownership experience.”

The Kia Sportage is an outstanding vehicle. If you would like to witness the excellence of the all-new Sportage in person, please feel free to pay us a visit here at Folsom Lake Kia today!
