Cars with the Best Initial Quality

The new 2013 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study was released last week, with vehicles by GM, Chevrolet and Porsche ranking at the top.

This year's study was reportedly enhanced for 2013 to allow better measures for the new technologies and features offered in today's cars.

Overall, the study found overall quality for the industry averaged 113 problems per 100 vehicles, with the majority of issues stemming from problems with the driver interface, such as hands-free technology, Bluetooth pairing, and navigation systems.

Of those tested, Porsche ranked highest with an average of only 80 problems per 100 vehicles. GMC ranked second with 90 and Lexus came in third with 94. At the bottom of the pack are Scion with 161 problems per 100 vehicles, Fiat with 154 and Mitsubishi with 148.

And of the 26 model-level segment awards, Chevrolet received the most with awards for the Avalanche, Camaro, Impala, Silverado HD and Tahoe. Take a look at the rankings below.
