What are the J.D. Power Initial Quality awards?

J.D. Power & Associates collect data year over year to track new-vehicle quality across all major automotive brands.

By tracking initial quality as reported by real owners and drivers, this independent company can provide the most accurate data for automakers looking to improve their products.

” The study, now in its 30th year, examines problems experienced by 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. –
