The J.D. Power Initial Quality Study aims to determine which vehicles have the least number of problems over the first 90 days of ownership. In order to rank different brands and vehicles, jdpower spoke with over 80,000 consumers who purchased a vehicle in the last 3 months. They were asked to answer 223 questions pertaining to the quality of their new vehicle.

The study which has been around for over three decades is considered the most important for consumers. It not only provides an overview of initial quality, but it is also telling of a vehicle’s long-term reliability. With just 163 problems per 100 vehicles, Cadillac finished well ahead of the industry average of 180 problems per 100 vehicles.
