2012 Jaguar XF: Jag Earns 2nd Place in JD Power IQS Awards
June 20, 2012
Jaguar is celebrating today's 2012 JD Power Initial Quality Survey results, having earned 2nd place, in a tie with Porsche, for the least amount of problems per 100 vehicles during a 90-day period. Jaguar was also the most-improved brand in the survey.
Lexus was the highest-ranking nameplate in the latest survey, averaging 73 problems per 100 vehicles. Jaguar and Porsche had 75 problems each, followed by Cadillac (80) and Honda (83).
Power's IQS study identifies problems experienced by owners in two categories: design-related problems and engineering- and manufacturing-related defects and malfunctions. The market-research firm says its survey of initial quality has been an early indicator of long-term vehicle durability.
I'll do my part in helping Jag celebrate, by taking the long-way home in our long-term XF.
