Kia Scores Big on 2016 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study Report

In an exciting upset, a non-luxury automotive brand has placed #1 in the rankings for J.D. Power and Associate's Initial Quality Study (IQS)--a research report that ranks automakers based on problems experienced by consumers within the first 90 days of ownership. The industry average is 105 problems per 100 vehicles. Top ten brands reported less than 99 problems per 100 vehicles.

And you can bet your buttons that the leader in terms of initial quality was Kia, with just 83 PP100.

What does that mean for drivers in Manassas, Chantilly, Woodbridge, Falls Church, and Washington DC? Well, if you're looking for a high-quality vehicle that satisfies, you may want to skip over some of those flashier brands--because Kia is proven to offer better initial quality than all other tested brands.

"Problems experienced" as reported by consumers range from simple things like audio controls and seat comfort to engine performance and ventilation, and each problem is sorted into one of eight categories. While the entire brand itself scored as the highest in initial quality, there were standout stars in the lineup that really took the cake; namely, the 2016 Kia Soul, which secured Highest in Initial Quality in the Compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle category, and the exciting 2016 Kia Sportage, which scored Highest in Initial Quality in the Small SUV category.

The J.D. Power and Associate's Initial Quality Study (IQS) is one of the most highly-respected studies in the entire automotive industry, so this recent report is exceptionally exciting for Kia dealers like Brown's Manassas Kia.
