Quality Declining
The initial quality of new vehicles did not fare well during the last year. With the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to disrupt supply chains — causing low supply and higher vehicle prices — the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. Initial Quality Study reported that problems with new vehicles reached the highest levels in the 36-year history of this study. The industry average of 180 problems per 100 vehicles represents an 11 percent increase versus the 2021 initial quality study. Global marketing information services company J.D. Power conducts this important auto industry study annually — one that winning automakers highlight in advertisements and shoppers use to help determine their purchase decisions.
