Infographic:2018 Initial Quality Key Stats

Jun 20, 2018

The J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality StudySM (IQS), published since 1987, examines problems experienced by original 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.

This year’s study shows a 4% improvement in quality. Once again, the Korean brands outperform their Japanese, domestic, and European competitors. And, Genesis ranks highest overall for the first time.

In the infographic that follows, we present some key statistics and findings from the 2018 U.S. Initial Quality Study.
