Press Releases:
U.S. New-Vehicle Quality Makes Largest Improvement in 7 Years, J.D. Power Study Finds
Kia Ranks Highest among Nameplates, Ending 27-Year Reign for Premium Brands


DETROIT: 22 June 2016 — New-vehicle quality improves 6%, double the 3% rate of improvement in 2015 and the largest increase since 2009, according to the J.D. Power 2016 U.S. Initial Quality Study™ (IQS), released today.

The study, now in its 30th year, examines problems experienced by vehicle owners during the first 90 days of ownership. Initial quality is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality.

...It wasn't all good news for Toyota, though: of the top 100 cars, the least reliable was found to be the 2013 Toyota Prius C. Other poor performers were the 2014 BMW 428, 2014 Buick Encore, 2011 BMW 528, and 2013 Mazda Mazda5...
How far does this list go back....Oldsmobile is on the list and they have been gone a long time....
