Lexus is on a roll if you ask JD Power. JD Power released its yearly US Vehicle Dependability Study, and for the 4th consecutive year Lexus topped the list. That's a new record.

The study surveys original owners of three-year-old vehicles about what type of problems they experienced over the last year. The vehicles and brands are then ranked according to the number of problems per 100 vehicles. Vehicles in the 2014 study are actually from model year 2011.

Lexus reported 89 problems per 100 vehicles. Second place was Buick with 110 problems per vehicles 100 vehicles, and third went to Toyota with 111 problems per 100 vehicles.

Seems like Lexus is stepping their quality control game up! When mass producing cars like this it is vital to make sure they are also very reliable with all the new technology being pumped into them..

Spells good things for the brand more broadly as well. Lexus is the top selling luxury brand in the US right now. Maybe, just maybe, they can actually take the luxury sales crown this year.

They just take a slower approach to things
I think with the new IS or some car they came out with that was the case, they could have packed it with a ton of things to make it extremely potent but they didn't want to sacrifice anything in the process, just do things really good every step of the way

At the same time I rarely hear of delays with Lexus. So they may take their time but at least they aren't issuing delays all the time to fix problems.
