Porsche beats Lexus in initial quality, Ford shines for 2nd year straight

Posted: June 4th, 200

J.D. Power and Associates released its 2008 Initial Quality Study results today which showed that overall vehicle quality improved to 118 problems per 100 vehicles in 2008, down from 125 in 2007. FoMoCo was a shining star for the second consecutive year with Mercury being the highest-rated domestic brand, beating Honda coming in behind Mercedes-Benz and Toyota.

Porsche held on to its number 1 spot followed by Infiniti and Lexus (who is supposed to be known as the quality king). Toyota tied with Mercedes-Benz at number 4.

The Porsche 911 has the fewest quality problems in the industry, with just 67 problems per 100 vehicles. Also receiving segment awards are the Ford E-Series, Lincoln Navigator, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Pontiac Grand Prix Sedan and Toyota Sequoia.

For a third consecutive year, Porsche tops the overall nameplate rankings, averaging 87 PP100. Following in the rankings are Infiniti (which improves from 9th rank position in 2007), Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and Toyota, respectively. Audi posts the largest improvement in ranking, moving from 26th place in 2007 to 10th in 2008.

The Initial Quality Study serves as the industry benchmark for new-vehicle quality measured at 90 days of ownership. The study is used extensively by vehicle manufacturers worldwide to help them design and build better vehicles and by consumers to help them in their vehicle purchase decisions. Initial quality has been shown over the years to be an excellent predictor of long-term durability, which can significantly impact consumer purchase decisions. The study captures problems experienced by owners in two distinct categories—quality of design and defects and malfunctions.

Too bad the 996 didn't come close to that with RMS leaks and clutch problems <_<
