Highest-Quality New Vehicles in America

AutoNXT Logo By Perry Stern of AutoNXT | Slide 1 of 26: Korean car companies continue to be standouts in terms of quality — for 2018 Genesis, Kia and Hyundai are the three highest-ranking car brands in the annual J.D Power U.S. Initial Quality Study. For four years in a row Kia has topped the mass-market brands. This important auto industry study has been conducted for more than 25 years by global marketing information services company J.D. Power. An automaker’s initial quality ranking is based on the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100). A lower IQS score indicates higher quality. The study is based on responses from more than 80,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2017 model-year vehicles, surveyed after 90 days of ownership.
