Hyundai not only beat out powerhouse rivals such as Chevrolet, Honda, and Toyota as the number one mainstream brand for quality, but the company also jumped from tenth place overall to fourth among all automakers.
Individual 2014 Hyundai models fared very well in the Initial Quality Survey with the Hyundai Accent, Elantra, and Genesis taking first place in the small car, compact car, and midsize premium car categories respectively. The Santa Fe and the Sonata came in second in their segments, while the Equus placed third.
For 28 years now, the J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Survey has reviewed the problems reported by car owners within the first 90 days of ownership. Their analysts determine the initial quality of an auto brand based upon the number of problems reported per 100 vehicles. Those with the least number of recorded problems score highest in the survey.
The strong showing by Hyundai in the IQS this year, and in two previous surveys, is a clear indication that Hyundai owners appreciate the fine quality of the vehicles in the Hyundai line-up. From superior design elements, efficient powertrains, and easy-to-use tech features to their outstanding customer support, Hyundai has demonstrated a commitment to quality that few other mainstream automakers can match.
Settling in behind the wheel of one of these terrific vehicles is the best way for car shoppers to discover what has made Hyundai the number one mass market automaker in quality. Drivers from in and around Savannah can check out all three IQS winning models and all of the other excellent new Hyundai vehicles by visiting Hilton Head Hyundai in the nearby New River Auto Mall. They are encouraged to contact their dealership for more information.
