J.D. Power and Associates study finds DTS has the fewest problems in the industry.

DETROIT — Cadillac DTS has been named the industry’s most dependable large premium car, part of the results of the 2010 Vehicle Dependability Study from J.D. Power and Associates. In addition, the study found that the Cadillac DTS has the fewest problems in the industry, with just 76 problems per 100 vehicles.

“It’s gratifying for DTS to excel in a study that is well respected by consumers,” said Don Butler, vice president of Cadillac marketing. “Luxury buyers value leadership in the products they select, from brands that they trust.”

In addition to the full-size DTS luxury sedan being named as the industry’s most dependable large premium car, Cadillac’s STS (Midsize Premium Car) and CTS (Entry Premium Vehicle) sedans and Escalade EXT (Large Premium Multi-Activity Vehicle) reached the top-three of their respective segments.

Cadillac DTS offers advanced technologies such as magnetic ride control, side blind zone alert, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. All Cadillac models feature a 5-year/100,000-mile transferrable power-train warranty, with courtesy transportation and 24/7 roadside assistance.

J.D. Power and Associates’ annual vehicle dependability study is a U.S.-market based survey providing insight into quality and reliability as vehicles approach the end of a typical warranty cycle. The study surveyed more than 52,000 owners on any problems encountered during the past 12 months on three year-old vehicles (model year 2007.) More information can be found at the J.D. Power Web Site.
