Thanks to Dodge’s strong performance, the developer became the first US carmaker to top the J.D. Power rankings. In fact, back in 2019, Dodge improved Challenger and Grand Caravan, which made it number one in the US.

IQS is one of J.D. Power’s annual surveys, designed to measure the quality of new cars by counting the number of reported problems per 100 vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership. J.D. Power calls it PP100, and the lower the value, the higher the quality of the brand or model.

In THE IQS, the developer is tied with Kia, solving an average of 136 problems per 100 car ownership in the first 90 days.

The FCA, meanwhile, is up seven places from last year, thanks to its excellent performance. It is also the first time the FCA has surpassed the industry average. Ram has also made huge strides, coming in at number three. Tesla, however, does not accept the J.D. Power survey, so it does not have an official ranking.

In this year’s IQS, the Chevrolet Sonic also got a nod, with a PP100 of 103, the lowest in all of this year’s surveys. The Kia Sedona is the highest class of minivan, the Ford Ranger is the highest class of medium pickup, and the Toyota Tundra is the highest class of light truck.

Some automakers have moved sharply because J.D. Power believes a wide range of vehicle problems can also affect a brand’s IQS score.

Mark Champine, FCA’s Head of Quality for North America, says the current results are the result of the company’s ongoing efforts across the company. These problems were discovered in order to give the customer a bad driving experience.
