2017 Kia J.D Power Awards for Sale in Lawrence, MA

 J.D. Power Award Winners

Kia is No. 1 among All Industry Brands in J.D. Power Initial Quality Study for a Second Consecutive Year

Chart-topping performance.

J.D. Power’s 2017 Initial Quality Study puts Kia on top once again, and with more awards than any other nameplate. The iconic U.S. study examines the problems new-vehicle owners face within their first 90 days of ownership. And this year’s study reveals that new-vehicle quality is at its highest ever. Making Kia’s #1 brand ranking, for the second straight year, that much sweeter.

Five Kia Models Receive Initial Quality Awards: For the second year in a row, Kia ranks highest among all automotive industry nameplates in the J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study SM(IQS).
Last year, in the 2016 IQS, Kia became the first non-luxury brand in 27 years to lead the industry in initial quality, following a strong performance in the 2015 IQS , in which the brand ranked second overall. In addition to its industry-leading performance in the 2017 IQS, Kia produces five award-recognized models: the 2017 Soul in theCompact MPV segment (third consecutive year); 2017 Sorento in the Midsize SUV segment (second award in three years); 2017 Kia Forte in the Compact Car segment; 2017 Kia Cadenza in the Large Car segment; and the all-new 2017 Kia Niro in the Small SUV segment.
J.D. Power Overall Quality Rating
In ranking highest among all brands industry-wide, Kia earns an overall score of 72 problems per 100 vehicles (PP100). In the 2017 IQS, which outperforms industry average by 25 PP100 and represents an 11-point Improvement from 83 PP100 in 2016.
The 2017 IQS evaluates eight problem categories that comprise Initial quality:
  • Exterior
  • Driving Experience
  • Features/Controls/Displays (FCD)
  • Audio/Communication/ Entertainment/ Navigation (ACEN)
  • Seats
  • Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Interior Engine/Transmission

 

 

The IQS measures both defects/malfunctions and design-related problems- features that may be operating as intended but are poorly located or difficult to use. As a brand, Kia once again improved substantially year over year.
