The J.D. Power 2017 U.S. Initial Quality Study has been released. Each year, the J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study examines 233 problems, organized into eight categories, measuring new vehicle quality at 90 days of ownership. This year's study was based on nearly 80,000 responses from owners and lessees of 2017 model year vehicles, with consumers being surveyed from February through May.
New vehicle quality overall for the industry reached a new record high, improving eight percent compared to last year's record-setting year. The industry average for the 2017 study is 97 problems per 100 vehicles (PP100), down from 105 a year ago. According to J.D. Power, the only category to do worse this year was features, controls, and displays. The largest increases in problems were for cruise control, lane departure warning, collision avoidance/alert systems, and blind spot warning.

In some ways it’s a hit list.
Subaru, hits high marks and has been for several years. Old problems, been solved. The Subaru they showed was the BRZ, which is basically a Toyota FRS, now “86” with a Subaru boxer engine.
Wow such detail for each brand on the list!!
Should’ve at least listed a few problems for each car instead of talking about how they performed last year and stupid reports on “confusing” displays. Pretty much useless video that only went over a list of car brands.
Why you picking and choosing to tell us what's wrong with some cars and nit telling us every vehicle??? Tell us every vehicle that you have in this video what's wrong with it don't go halfway ... You're just wasting everybody's time watching his lame video
So AUTOGUIDE, let me get this straight. You say Hyundai is the leader in Lemons from January 2016 - December 2016. However, they're not on this list? Where and how do you guys get your info? I was going to buy a 2018 Elantra this summer now I don't know what to believe.
Are you people bunch of stupid lunatic idiotic idiots. The car brands you people have show are known for 'Worst' initial quality....I mean brands like Audi, Land Rover, infinity etc. I think you people should go get yourself fucked from Chinese car makers then probably you'll understand what does worst quality mean. Idiots
Alot of these are cars that try to go above and beyond with extra feature, but they mess up on some. Just as well i dont think its fair for them to be criticized about it. I mean seriously Mazda, Volvo, and Subaru? I mean WTH. Alot of these it because the dumbos the card dont know how to use the infotainment system.
wheres ford chrysler jeep junk? this is rigged theirs no way ford cant even put a steering wheel on their fusion had to recall lotts of them junkers tell em quit go outta business ruining the good cars chevy honda toyota with their junk overproduction priced junk
No one cares if a car has a slight issue. These car reliability tests seriously need to start categorizing issues. Show us the mechanical damage to the engine and transmission, no one gives a fuck about else.
JD powers explanation of initial quality is wacky. It's just people complaining about confusing or annoying features. This isn't a reliability survey. I still don't get initial quality. Really suprised mazda, Subaru, and audi are on this list.
Im confused, Subaru is usually rated very high in reliability. Also why is Audi on this list for initial quality? i can understand problems down the road, but I have never heard anyone complain about Audis for the first several years.
This list has little value because a majority of the complaints come from users who don't know how to use the infotainment or operate the vehicle's other features. Long term vehicle testing and surveys give a much better idea of how well a vehicle actually works.That said, I'm not surprised to see FCA has topped the list.
Subaru and Mazda should not be on this list. Look at Consumer Reports and you will see they are rated VERY highly. I think it was just complaints about people not understanding the controls. I have a 2017 Subaru Outback and it is a year old now. It has not had a single problem. JD Power always did seem completely off from other auto research companies. I would not trust this list or anything from JD Power.
I believe these survey results came from old people and middle aged people who don't know how to read an owner's manual and complain about every sound these cars make. If younger people were given a chance with these cars, then the survey results might come out better.
Dumb survey or poor review of survey. No distinction between an issue that costs $1 to repair and does not effect the car mechanically, to a $1000 repair that will put your car on the scrap heap if not fixed.
People who love cars are not included. Tech savvy folks are excluded. Most people buy the cars with safety features they don't understand and then complain because they are too dumb to figure it out. JD Power is full of shit.
