    Porsche tops Forbes' quality list

    From UPI

    NEW YORK, April 11 (UPI) -- U.S. consumers believe luxury and quality go hand-in-hand and rate Porsche as the highest-quality automobile, Forbes magazine reported Monday.

    Forbes averaged out scores of two J.D. Power's surveys -- one that rated consumer satisfaction on 2010 model cars after 90 days of ownership and one that rates the same after three years of ownership. They also factored in scores on quality from a survey done by automobile industry research firm ALG.


    Porsche topped the list with an average score of 590.2, followed by Lexus with an average score of 585.3. BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes came in third, fourth and fifth, respectively.

     

    "The perception of the quality of the mainstream is certainly a cut below the luxury brands," Eric Lyman, the director of residual values for the automotive analysis firm ALG, told Forbes.

    "People expect that a luxury good has higher quality -- that's why it's considered a luxury good," Lyman said.

    The top eight also included, in order of preference, Acura, Audi and Volkswagen.

    Lexus now is not what it used to be, Toyota getting sloppy and careless with that brand, Toyota grew too big too fast, they don't have the time nor man power to ensure quality.

     


    Re: Porsche tops Forbes' quality list

     Well, when you do the same thing over and over, your bound to get good at it.

    What I find interesting is Jaguar is in the top five. Isn't this an India car company?

    Wouldn't you know it, the Indians build them better than the British.....................

    Whoopsy:

    Wouldn't you know it, the Indians build them better than the British.....................

    From Wiki:

    Jaguar cars today are designed in Jaguar Land Rover's engineering centres at the Whitley plant in Coventry and at their Gaydon site in Warwickshire, and are manufactured in Jaguar's Castle Bromwich assembly plant near Birmingham.

     

     

    I did not know that. Apparently Land Rovers are pretty shoddy still...


    Re: Porsche tops Forbes' quality list

    Hey Joe, I know where Jaguars are build, it's a joke on Jaguars and Land Rovers. :)

     

     


    Re: Porsche tops Forbes' quality list

    Jaguar has been doing really well. I'd say up there in terms of general improvement with Mercedes and Hyundai.

    Japanese quality and attention to detail is a myth of the past.

    Lexus, Toyota and Fukushima plant,  same thing Smiley
