America’s Best – And Worst – Cars
J.D. Power has carried out a quality survey of models in the US car/light truck market. Vehicles are ranked by the number of problems per 100 vehicles and this year’s industry average was 133 faults. The highest rated was Lexus (76 faults), followed by Cadillac (103) and Infiniti (110). The model scoring the worst was the Hummer (225), but there were some famous names at the wrong end of the list, with Land Rover (190) in penultimate position, then Kia (168), Mini (166) and Saab (160).
