J.D. Power conducts a study of new car quality and Porsche topped the list this year. Buyers reported an average of 116 problems per 100 vehicles in the first 90 days after their vehicle purchase, which was 3% more than the last year. They found that buyers reported more problems this year that they did during the same time frame last year. The cold winter may have had an effect on the numbers with a significant percentage of the problems related to heating systems, engine and transmission issues.
Porsche topped the list with 74 issues per 100 vehicles, while Fiat scored the worst with 206 per 100 vehicles. Ford was the most improved, climbing 11 spots to 16 in the rankings. Acura and Infinity both fell 19 spots in the rankings, during a period when they both released new models. GM won the most awards with 6 vehicles claiming awards in their class. Hyundai was 2nd with 5 vehicles winning J.D. Power awards.
