The Buick brand is renowned for designing vehicles with sophisticated style, reliable performance, modern technology, and luxury amenities. Now, Buick is also receiving recognition for claiming the top spot in the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. Initial Quality Study.
For its 36th year, surveyors looked to more than 84,000 purchasers and lessees who were driving new 2022 model-year vehicles. An in-depth questionnaire asked drivers about their experience with categories such as infotainment, driving assistance, interior, exterior, features, controls, displays, and overall driving experience. The study helps pinpoint problems in an effort to promote product improvement.
Vehicle ratings are calculated by problems per 100 vehicles (PP100), with lower scores indicating higher vehicle quality. Buick is the highest-ranked brand in overall initial quality, scoring 139 PP100. This is an improvement of 17 PP100 in comparison to previous model years. What’s more, the 2022 Buick Encore GX ranked first in its segment.
Though the automotive industry has faced many challenges recently, General Motors has shown its resilience and commitment to quality by securing nine segment awards in the J.D. Power 2022 studies.
