    JD power initial quality

    No real big surprises besides Jaguar really improving in the last few years. Too bad it takes a company from India to improve quality.

    Not surprised by Dodge being near the bottom. I am a little surprised by Ford beign so low but it sounds like a lot of the problems have to do with My Ford Touch.

    Fiat and Smart are probably hurt by just having one model and it being all new for America.

    The good news is that almost all the car makers are improving every year even with all the added technology.



    A ranking of 100 means that there is one problem per vehicle within the first 90 days.

    Pretty standard for them. They have big hopes of becoming the worlds largest automaker. If they expect that anytime soon they are going to have to make some quality improvements.

    I'm surprised Mini has stayed near the bottom for so long. A lot of their models are nearly identical in electronics, powertrain, etc.

    Actually kind of surprised that Chevy is that much higher than Ford and Dodge...

    Same here. Throw the Ford My Touch out and my bet is they score near the top.
