Lexus is taking thee highest place in the latest quality initial study

Right after Porsche was dethroned for the 1st time in the last 3 years, Lexus is again atop the Initial Quality Study of J.D. Power and Associates. The final study unveiled that the quality at Chevrolet and Ford is virtually on par at the moment with this at Toyota.

The study showed, Chevy and Ford now rank eighth and seventh - in initial quality, behind Toyota - on the 6th place. Moreover, Chevy and Ford posted the scores of 103 and 102 errors, problems per 1 hundred cars, giving them a Toyota virtual tie at 101. 'There is no statistical difference between a 101 and a 102 or, for that matter, between a 101 and a 103' J.D. Power’s vice president automotive research - David Sargent, reported to Automotive News.

Honda (99), Porsche (84), Hyundai (95), Mercedes-Benz (101) and Cadillac (91) rounded out the top five's rest. Lexus took the highest place with 84 errors per 100 cars. Saab, Jeep, MINI, Land Rover and Smart, filled out the lowest 5 places, scoring respectively 138, 137, 165, 150 and 138.
