Reliability

Winner: 2016 Hyundai Sonata

For reliability scores, we look to the J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study and Predicted Reliability Study. This year, the Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord both earn a four on a scale of one to five, which is about what buyers should expect based on these manufacturers’ strong reputations.

However, Hyundai backs the Sonata with a stronger warranty than Honda provides for the Accord. The Sonata comes with a five-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, which is better than the Accord’s three-year/36,000-mile new vehicle warranty and five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
