Chevy recently received five awards from JD Power for the 2016 Initial Quality Study. These awards are given to vehicles that perform the best in the first 90 days, measuring things like maintenance issues and overall satisfaction. The Silverado 1500, Equinox, Tahoe, Spark, and Silverado HD each won their segments for initial quality.
Chevy notes that a renewed focus on the customer has led to sales growth, as well as better overall satisfaction. The JD Power Initial Quality Study highlights which vehicles perform the best in the industry, helping customers make decisions during the buying process. According to the results of the study, it’s much more likely that you’ll be satisfied with a Chevy than any other model.
“These results play two critical roles in our strategy to bring new retail buyers to the brand,” said Alan Batey, Global Chevrolet president. “The study results will help attract new buyers to Chevrolet, as J.D. Power data shows ‘expected reliability’ is customers’ top purchase consideration for a new vehicle.”
The Silverado 1500 took the full-size truck category, the Silverado HD won for heavy-duty trucks, the Equinox took first in compact SUVs, the Tahoe won large SUVs, and the Spark won the city car segment. Based on responses from over 80,000 recent car buyers, it’s official—if you want quality, get a Chevy.
