It is not April 1, but Toyota’s Scion brand still came in dead last  in J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study (IQS), which measures the number of problems on vehicles after 30 days of ownership.  GM had two brands (GMC and Chevrolet) in the study’s top five; Chrysler had none in the top ten. This is the first time in the study’s 27-year history that GM or Chevrolet have been in the top five, or that GM as a company has come in on top. The most trouble free vehicle was the Lexus LS, which was freshly redesigned for 2013, with 59 problems per hundred vehicles; the best brand was Porsche, with 80. GM’s four brands averaged 98, making GM the only automaker with less than one problem per car.

Fiat is an embarrassment. Marchionne needs to break heads.

Never thought I'd see GM near the top. Chrysler stuff is getting better and I hope that trend continues. Agree on the Fiat side of things. Their quality and reliability isn't so great in Europe either. Then again, I have a Jeep Liberty that was built during the bankruptcy turmoil and maybe it's just coincidence, but it has had a lot of issues. I've had a couple Liberties and the others gave me no problems at all. This 2010 though has been a real challenge. :glare:

Funny, my 2010 just hit 80,000 miles and I haven't had many issues other than expected stuff due to offroading.
