J.D. Power’s Initial Affection Abstraction didn’t accommodate the California automaker amid the 31 brands ranked for 2020 because it didn’t accommodated the firm’s ratings criteria, but Tesla landed at 250 problems per 100 vehicles, or PP100 — a advertence to J.D. Power’s longstanding metric for affection mishaps, whether from base failures or design-related issues that owners artlessly disliked.
Tesla’s 250 PP100 far outpaced the industry’s 166 PP100 boilerplate for the 2020 archetypal year. By contrast, Dodge and Kia had 136 PP100 apiece; alike basal finishers Audi and Land Rover came in at 225 and 228 PP100, respectively. Redesigned alignment for the 2020 abstraction agency such metrics don’t analyze anon to J.D. Power’s 2019 IQS, aback PP100 ante were far lower. That’s because the 2020 abstraction has added questions that acquiesce owners to adduce added problems, according to the firm.
Here’s the baronial of all brands advised in J.D. Power’s 2020 Initial Affection Study, followed by their PP100 score:
Tesla charcoal the sole aloft automaker that doesn’t admission permission for J.D. Power to analysis its owners. Fifteen states bar such surveys afterwards absolute permission, the close said, abrogation historically bereft abstracts to amount the automaker’s cars. No longer.
“We did analysis their barter in the added 35 states, and we had over 1,200 responses from them, and from this data, we were able to adumbrate a civic score,” said Dave Sargent, J.D. Power’s carnality admiral of automotive quality, in a appointment alarm with reporters today. Surveyed Tesla owners appear cogent affection problems about agent accomplishment issues, decidedly with the exterior.
“It’s not because they body EVs — there are almost few problems with the array or with the motor itself. It’s abundantly about doors and acrylic and panels,” Sargent said. “Right now, they acquire some challenges on the affection front.”
Asked to comment, a Tesla agent did not anon acknowledge to Cars.com.
Noting “best-ever performance” from Detroit automakers against their foreign-based counterparts, J.D. Power cited above-average achievement from Dodge, Chevrolet and Ram (both the closing at 141 PP100), as able-bodied as Buick (150), GMC (151), Jeep (155) and Cadillac (162). Affiliated Korean automakers Hyundai and Kia fared well, too, with Kia attached Dodge aloft the abstraction and Hyundai’s 153 PP100 baronial the cast in the top third. J.D. Power rated Hyundai’s affluence brand, Genesis, at 142 PP100 — top amid affluence brands and advanced of Lexus (159 PP100) and Cadillac.
All added affluence brands ranked beneath industry average, as did best brands from automakers based in Japan or Europe. Amid aloft Japanese brands, Nissan ranked aloof aloft average; Honda, Toyota, Subaru and Mazda ranked beneath it. Amid aloft European brands, alone Volkswagen exceeded the industry average. Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz were amid the below-average brands, in some cases considerably.
“Mass-market brands acquire bent up with the exceptional brands in agreement of aloof the axiological body quality,” Sargent said. “At the aforementioned time, the mass-market technology tends to be added automatic for barter to understand. Exceptional brands can sometimes over-elaborate on the technology.”
The study, now in its fifth generation, draws from buyer surveys for about 90,000 purchasers and lessees of new model-year 2020 cartage afterwards 90 canicule of ownership. Don’t abash it with J.D. Power’s Agent Dependability Study, which looks at agent believability afterwards the aboriginal three years of ownership. Both studies alphabetize believability failures, but additionally — if beneath so for VDS — aspects that owners artlessly dislike, such as an unintuitive multimedia arrangement or hard-to-reach button. J.D. Power has dedicated the convenance in the accomplished on the area that such defects absolutely drive added annoyance than things that artlessly break.
Sargent common that today, calling unintuitive appearance the “biggest area” of IQS problems.
“The difficult-to-use problems are by far and abroad the best accustomed in the abstraction — this has been accurate for some time now, [but] it’s acceptable added and added the case, and in the customer’s mind, these things are aloof as analytical as things breaking or not working,” he said. Such problems “can’t be apparent by the dealership, so the customer’s ashore with this for the blow of the buying of the vehicle.”
Types of botheration notwithstanding, the Chevrolet Sonic ranked as the car with the atomic hiccups in the aboriginal 90 days, arch not aloof its chic but all cars. Here are J.D. Power’s segment-specific awards:
The 2020 analysis asked owners accurately about Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Thirty-seven percent of respondents said they use CarPlay, against aloof 18% who use Android Auto, and after-effects aural those cohorts differed. About two-thirds of Apple users said they use the arrangement at atomic bisected the time they’re in the car, against aloof over bisected of Android users. Curiously, 5% of Apple users and 11% of Android users said they’ve chock-full application Apple CarPlay or Android Auto in their vehicles.
Amid that backdrop, drivers who use Apple CarPlay appear 45.1 PP100 in J.D. Power’s Infotainment category, while those who use Android Auto appear 50.5 PP100 in the category. Drivers who don’t use either system, meanwhile, appear aloof beneath 30 PP100.
“This doesn’t necessarily beggarly that these Apple CarPlay and Android Auto [systems] are causing the problems,” Sargent cautioned. “It may be that bodies are application CarPlay and Android Auto to account problems that they’re already experiencing with the [automakers’] built-in systems.”
He went on to agenda that “almost everybody who uses these systems wants them afresh on their abutting vehicle, so I anticipate it’s abundantly been a success, but they don’t break all of the infotainment problems that barter are reporting.”

Some problems may axis from automakers relegating aloft controls to touchscreen airheaded or touch-sensitive panels. We frequently harp on that decision, and it seems owners agree.
“In general, consumers adopt concrete buttons, decidedly for controls they use all the time, the best accessible actuality the audio arrangement on-off and aggregate control, and the altitude ascendancy features,” Sargent said. “Automakers who acquire those appearance at atomic accessible as adamantine buttons — they may additionally be in the touchscreen — but if they acquire them as adamantine buttons, they will about acquire beneath appear problems.”
The aforementioned goes for boundless touchscreen applications.
“We’ve apparent some automakers who went actual abundant against putting aggregate on the touchscreen who are now affective aback to accepting some added simple controls,” Sargent said. “It’s affectionate of, I think, a assignment abstruse by the industry. Some things assignment able-bodied in a touchscreen. Added things, consumers absolutely appetite to aloof be able to ability over and about-face a bulge and do it in a abundant added simple fashion.”
