JD Power throughout its history has provided statistics and studies that are sometimes controversial, but always based on data and criteria that are usually real. This is one of those occasions and the results of the initial quality study show that so much That how Dodge are placed first on this list.
First of all we must understand what the study is about, and this basically collects information on the level of satisfaction of car owners of various brands, to know if they have had any kind of failure and express it in statistics in order to obtain an appropriate ranking .
Knowing this, we must know that both aforementioned marks were at the top, thanks to the fact that the data showed that only 136 failures occurred in a 90-day span for every 100 new vehicles sold in the U.S.
This leaves them with the best scores, followed in the background by Chevrolet and Ram, both with 141 points, Genesis with 142 points and Mitsubishi with 148 points. It should be noted that the average of failures was placed at 166 points, so the cited assemblers exceed the average expectations of this study.
But not everyone did well in this approach, as there are brands that were relegated to poor scores. The last four places are occupied by Jaguar with 190 points, Mercedes-Benz with 202, Volvo with 210, Audi with 224 points and Land Rover with 228.
Although the JD Power leaderboard ends there, the reality is that the surprise, for bad, took her Tesla, because according to the classifier they did not even meet the standards to be classified, since they presented 250 failures in the first 90 days for every 100 units sold.
This is how once again a study sparks controversy, because although the failures in Tesla are constant, according to the study, it is positioned as one of the most valuable automotive companies in the world today.
