Kia On Top
For 2016, Korean automaker Kia is the highest-ranked nameplate for initial quality — the first time in 27 years that a non-premium brand has topped the charts in the annual Initial Quality Study. This important auto industry study is produced by the global marketing information services company J.D. Power. An automaker’s initial quality ranking is based on the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100). A lower score indicates higher quality. The study is based on responses from more than 80,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2016 model-year vehicles, surveyed after 90 days of ownership.
