Power released its 28th annual Vehicle Dependability Study, which examines the reliability of 2014 model-year cars over the past 12 months — giving car buyers a glimpse at the type of problems these three-year-old cars are likely to experience.

The overall winner this year was Toyota with wins in 10 categories, followed by General Motors with only 4 wins.
