Porsche Tops J.D. Power’s 2013 Initial Quality Study
The results for this year’s J.D. Power Initial Quality Study have been released and Porsche has been recognized for having the least amount of problems with its cars on average.
The annual quality study, now in its 27th year, looks at problems experiences by buyers of new cars during their first 90 days of ownership and uses the average number of problems to rank the brands.
The industry average this year was 113 problems per 100 vehicles (PP100).
Porsche knocked off last year’s leader Lexus, which dropped back to third was surprisingly surpassed by GMC in second. Porsche ranked highest among brands included in the 2013 study, averaging just 80 PP100. GMC ranked second with 90 PP100, and Lexus ranked third with 94 PP100.
