Normally, consumers in addition to car purchase to care about the interior and exterior design of the vehicle, three pieces and cost-effective, etc. , the quality of the vehicle is also a factor that can not be ignored, after all, it is now easy to buy a car, if the choice of the quality of the general model, light later maintenance costs are enough for you to suffer, Not to mention a trip to the car. Therefore, for the friends who want to buy a car, what brand car quality is better, it becomes a very noteworthy point.
Earlier, J.D. Power, a leading U.S. survey, released the 2019 U.S. New Car Quality Survey, which included 14 high-end brands and 18 generic brands, for a total of 32 brands and 257 models. Its findings come from the number of problems reported by owners within 90 days of new cars from February to the end of May. It should be noted that J.D. Power was founded in 1968 and has become one of the world’s most authoritative automotive research companies, with excellent recognition worldwide, and still has a high reference value despite regional differences. So what will happen to the 2019 U.S. New Car Quality Rankings?
From the overall list, it is more surprising that The Korean brands such as Gaines, Kia and Hyundai have managed to make the top three, with the fourth, fifth and sixth home-grown brands such as Ford, Lincoln and Chevrolet coming in seventh place. And in the domestic reputation for high-quality, reliability of Lexus, Toyota and other brands have come to the ninth, 10th, which can not help but be somewhat surprised.
Specifically, the top-ranked Korean luxury brand, Gaines, whose PP100 index rose to 63 from 68 last year, has always had an excellent reputation in the Korean and North American markets, the quality is outstanding, and in China’s luxury car market, hindering the German BBA’s strong dominance, Even the powerful Mr. Gaines has struggled to find a breakthrough. But Gaines has also officially announced this year to enter China, when with its high-quality positive hard-core those second-tier luxury brands?
Kia, which ranks second, has a PP100 index of 70. Kia is a steady player in the North American market, with good performance in several market segments, small cars, small vans, small SUVs and compact cars, and the overall score is naturally impressive without short boards.
Hyundai brands, on the other hand, took third place with PP100 71, in fact, Hyundai has been in third place since last year and has a high quality control in the North American market, but in the domestic market, Hyundai’s performance is somewhat surprising. Hyundai needs to improve its quality if it is to return to its former peak in the Chinese market.
In addition to the top three, this time above the industry average standard of brands are Ford, Lincoln, Chevrolet, Nissan, Dodge, Lexus, Toyota and Buick, and in the domestic market, Ford, Lincoln, Dodge and other U.S. brands sales performance is not optimistic, perhaps more problems in product positioning and marketing.
It is worth mentioning that in the hearts of domestic consumers in the higher status of Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi and Porsche and other brands are below the industry average, which may exist in different countries in the production process and quality control standards inconsistent problems, so the need for a rational view.
Admittedly, it’s a bit of a surprise to look at J.D. Power’s U.S. car reliability rankings and look at the 2019 U.S. New Car Quality List. Of course, given that J.D. Power is more of a North American market, some of the best quality models or brands in the country will not be able to make the list for a variety of reasons. What do you think of the 2019 U.S. New Car Quality List?
