Understanding the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study

The J.D. Power Initial Quality Study is an annual evaluation that ranks auto manufacturers and their products based on the number of problems experienced per one hundred vehicles (PP100). The study provides a comprehensive assessment of vehicle quality in the early ownership period, making it a crucial benchmark for auto brands. The brand and vehicle with the lowest level of problems per 100 vehicles in their respective categories are deemed the winners.

Commitment to Excellence

The Genesis G80’s continued recognition in the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study is a testament to the brand’s dedication to excellence. With its luxurious features, superior performance, and cutting-edge technology, the G80 remains a top choice for discerning customers in the upper midsize premium car segment.
