Hyundai Most Reliable Manufacturer

Every driver looks for something different in a vehicle, but whether you value performance over fuel economy or safety over entertainment, everyone can agree that they want their vehicle to last and give them very few problems.  That is what the CarMD® Vehicle Health Index™ Manufacturer & Vehicle Reliability Rankings aim to determine, and for 2013, CarMD was happy to name Hyundai Most Reliable Manufacturer, a distinction for which all automakers strive.

“The 2013 CarMD Vehicle Health Index Manufacturer and Vehicle Reliability Ranking looked at data that applies to more than 119 million vehicles, so to earn this ranking is no small feat,” said Leon C. Chen, CEO of, in a press release. “We commend Hyundai for its commitment to quality and to its efforts to minimize vehicle operating costs.”

Hyundai’s 2013 CarMD Vehicle Health Index rating was .80, which was the lowest of all automakers studied.  Hyundai’s average repair cost was the second lowest of any studied at just $312.67.

“Hyundai strives to provide our customers with a worry-free car ownership experience by offering a lineup of vehicles that deliver on both quality and reliability, backed by the most competitive protection program in the business,” said Erwin Raphael, director, Engineering and Quality for Hyundai. “Earning the first place title in CarMD’s Vehicle Health Index Report proves that our recipe for combining high value vehicles with long-term vehicle protection is a success.”
