Chevrolet J.D. Power Dependability Awards

Chevrolet J.D. Power Dependability Awards

2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with optional features shown above.

Each year, Chevrolet presents awards for vehicles that drivers have been able to depend on for everything from their work commutes, to small errand runs, to travels across the country. These awards are known as the J.D. Power Awards and have been given out since 1968 By David Power III. Read on to see which Chevy models have garnered these prestigious honors thanks to their customer satisfaction, reliability, and incredible features, and then drop by Sweeney Chevrolet to see some up-close and take them for a test drive!

What are the J.D. Power Dependability Awards?

You may have seen commercials with vehicles that have won these awards, but still aren’t quite sure what they are or how they’re earned. Well, let us give you some insight. The annual survey asks thousands of verified owners of vehicles about the kind of problems they've been encountering with their 3-year-old model over the course of a year. At the end, the drivers with vehicles that are reliable and produce a smaller number of problems earn a higher score and are in the running to win the award. They are also a great way for customers like you to see with your own eyes which vehicles you can purchase and depend on thanks to the many voices with positive feedback!

Chevrolet Pickup Truck & SUV Award Winners

Since 2016, Chevy is the only brand to win the J.D. Power Dependability Awards for four years in a row1. Customers from all over the nation are proud to be owners of this brand and we’re here to name a few trucks, SUVs, compact SUVs, and sedans that have garnered this award. First up is the Silverado. This model won because customers have found it to be dependable while providing power, capability, and advanced technology. In 2016, it won the “Most Dependable Large Heavy Duty Pick Up” Award. Another is the Colorado. Thanks to its powerful engine and 7,000-lb. maximum towing capacity2, it was made for your heavy loads. If you have a big family, you’ll be happy to hear that drivers are loving the Suburban as it made the list the last four years. The Tahoe is another winner that comes with a striking design and an impressive performance, and it acquired the “Buyers Most Wanted Large SUV Award” from Edmunds.


2019 Chevrolet Cruze

Compact SUVs & Sedan Winners

Before we end, we have to turn our attention to some of the crossovers and sedan J.D. Power Award winners. If you’re looking for a smaller yet spacious and stylish winner, you might go with the one and only Equinox. The J.D. Power Survey named it “Most Dependable Compact SUV3,” in 2016, so you know you’re getting a reliable model! For agile handling as well as an efficient engine, you might go with the Trax. One of the full-size sedans that earned a spot on the list is the gorgeous Impala that’s packed with both tech and safety features made to keep you entertained and protected on every journey. You’ll also be happy to hear that our performance cars, such as the Corvette and Camaro also won the hearts of drivers with their top-notch engines and speed. Last, but definitely not least, we can’t leave out the incomparable Cruze. Its no secret owners of this compact car are loving its body style—available in sedan and hatchback—spacious cargo, and unbelievable fuel efficiency, which are just a few reasons why it’s been a winner all four years so far!

Now that you know a little bit about the Chevrolet J.D. Power Awards, visit us at Sweeney Chevrolet to see some of the winning models in the flesh! We’d love to show you the features included in our impeccable vehicles and get you behind the wheel. You can find us at 8010 Market Street in Youngstown, OH.

I purchased a Buick Enclave from nick over a month ago. Not only was he knowledgeable and fair during the sale but the follow up after has even been better. I can stop in the dealership whenever I need with questions and he’s there to help me out. There’s just so much to know about this new car!

Awesome Customer Service/Prices

We just leased a 2019 Chevy Equinox from Sweeney, and by far they had the best deal on the market in comparison to other dealerships in the area. The sales person was very helpful and patient with us. Coming in 20 minutes before they closed to sign paperwork, and then staying after meant a lot to us. I recommend 100% to anyone looking to lease/buy a car. Their deals on the website are the same in person, not some gimmick just to get you to come in.

Richie Mularchik has a true passion for making sure his clients leave the dealership satisfied and continue to be satisfied with their purchase. While my fiance and I were on our wedding in North Carolina our car battery died and I reached out to Richie , he came over before work and checked it out for our neighbor who was watching our house and came back on lunch to fix the issue. I cannot be more thankful to have leased a car through Richie who truly looks out for the best interest of his customers throughout the entire purchase and after.

Purchased our 4th vehicle from Frank DiIanni. Superb service. Frank made sure that our requests were met, worked with financing and explained the differences between our older and newer Equinox. It''s always a pleasure to do business with Frank and we never feel pressured. We''ve even directed business his way, knowing that he does an excellent job and always makes purchasing a car from him an enjoyable experience. The car does not disappoint. So glad we upgraded.

I was in a terrible car accident last week. I am a newly widowed mother to 4 who JUST filed bankruptcy. We have previously purchased 2 vehicles from Sweeney but I was terrified they wouldn't be able to help me. Than along came Michael Winger, he went above and beyond to find the PERFECT vehicle for my children and I and he as well as Jake were sure to go out of their way and fight to get me financed! I can say happily that yesterday evening thanks to Michael I drove my 2015 Chevy Traverse off the lot. I cried the whole drive home for how much the did for me. Such an amazing person to care so much about a customer who was struggling! I will ONLY buy from Sweeney and will send anyone I know looking for a car to Michael as well! Thank you for all you've done for my children and myself. You have no idea how much it means!

I worked with Mitch Hulvalchick with my process. Mitch was very informative and when I mentioned the vehicle I would like to purchase and was not sure if I could afford it, Mitch went above and beyond to allow my wife and I to be able to afford the vehicle we really wanted. My hands off to Sweeneys and Mitch for a job well done.

SALES: I have been dealing with Sweeney Chevy for over 25 years. Rick Spokan has been my sales person. I have bought 10 vehicles. MY kids all have bought vehicles from Rick. He is fair. I tell him what i want -- he does not push you into something higher. I have bough bought both New and Used. When looking for a specific Used car - if one is not available, he takes the time to write down what we are looking for. And he follows up with calls, letting me know, nothing has come in, or - Hey - we got something that you were looking for. SERVICE: Over the years, Service dept went above & beyond servicing it. Both Jerry''s and Rich were hands-on, and followed up
