Power Survey Finds Pricier Cars Repaired More

The latest quality-related survey from J.D. Power and Associates finds that many of the high-priced cars and trucks sold in America are more frequent visitors in the repair bays. The survey measured the percentage of service visits that involved repairs, not just maintenance. Power results as reported by USA Today indicate that about two-thirds of its luxury brands scored worse than the industry average of 35%. Land Rover stood out with 62% of visits being repair-related. Buick was the best brand ranked by the survey, with only 21% of service calls involving a repair. The survey polled 106,000 owners of three-year-old vehicles.
