Diamond Honda of Glendale is proud to say that Honda holds many honorable titles and awards to its name. Many of these recognitions come from well-respected automotive reviewers such as the experts at J.D. Power and Associates. Most recently, Honda has added another shiny trophy to the case. The brand ranked #5 for the J.D. Power and Associates "2012 U.S. Initial Quality Study."
At first, you might be thinking that number five is nice...but it's no number one or even number two. Well, Diamond Honda of Glendale should point out that the brands sitting above Honda are all luxury automakers. In other words, according to J.D. Power and Associates, Honda sits as the highest-ranking, mass-market, non-premium brand when it comes to initial vehicle quality. That trophy is looking a bit shinier now, wouldn't you say?
More specifically, Honda placed high for three of its stellar new Honda models: the Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, and Honda Ridgeline. Ironically enough, all three of these autos are created alongside one another at the automaker's dedicated production plant in Lincoln, Alabama.
How do brands place at the top of this particular study? Every year, J.D. Power and Associates surveys consumers after they have owned their new vehicle for 90 days. Participants in the study provide feedback relating to problems experienced in two main areas: design-related issues and defects/malfunctions.
We're guessing you're pretty glad Honda scored so well. Nobody wants a defective new auto on their hands and thankfully, for Honda drivers, that is simply not an issue.
