Winning the Gold: Nissan Ties for First Place in Initial Quality Study
First Place In Initial Quality Study
Finding a car you know is going to last can be a difficult task. Luckily, there’s the JD Power Initial Quality Study every year. Looking at owner responses and data from the first 90 days of vehicle ownership, JD Power determines which new cars are likely to have the best quality. Nissan tied for first place among brands following the recent Initial Quality Study, and several cars won in their respective segments including the Altima, Maxima, and Frontier.
So Many Wins
According to Nissan, the Frontier won the Midsize Truck category for the third year in a row, while the Maxima took home the gold in the Large Car category with the second highest score in the entire study. The Nissan Altima won the Midsize Car segment. “Nissan’s J.D. Power IQS results for 2018 are encouraging because they reflect customer satisfaction directly from the people who buy and lease our vehicles,” said Mark Swenson, vice president, Total Customer Satisfaction, Nissan North America. “Positive IQS performance is a tribute to the ongoing efforts of Nissan Engineering, R&D, Quality and Manufacturing teams around the world.”
The Nissan LEAF Is Wowing!
The Nissan LEAF, the brand’s all-new 100-percent electric model, also had some of the most significant improvements from last year, gaining 17 points since the previous survey. One of Nissan’s manufacturing plants in Smyrna also tied for third for having the best quality performance among facilities in North America.
