The 2011 J.D. Power & Associates initial quality study reveals stellar results for Honda, including second place overall.

Honda is relentless in its pursuit of making the highest-quality vehicles.

Honda has placed second overall, above many high-end and luxury car makers, in J.D. Power & Associates Initial Quality Study for 2011. The company had a whopping seven models in first place for their category and achieved its best ranking to date.

As a whole, Honda was named above industry standards in problems per vehicle rankings, better than Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti, and Toyota.

"These results are an important demonstration of our focus on the customer and the tireless efforts put forth by Honda associates throughout our organization – in R&D, in manufacturing, and in sales – to exceed their high expectations," says Tetsuo Iwamura, President & CEO of American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

Seven Honda models won first place for quality in their segment. The J.D. Power & Associates winners of top models per segment include:

  •     Honda Fit – Highest Ranked Sub-Compact Car
  •     Honda Civic/Honda Insight (Tie) – Highest Ranked Compact Car
  •     Honda Accord – Highest Ranked Midsize Car
  •     Honda Element/Honda CR-V (#1, #2) – Highest Ranked Compact Crossover/SUV
  •     Honda Accord Crosstour – Highest Ranked Midsize Crossover/SUV
  •     Honda Ridgeline – Highest Ranked Midsize Pickup

"The results don't surprise me since Honda is relentless in its pursuit of making the highest-quality vehicles," says Yonkers Auto Mall Manager Josh Aaronson. "Honda is on par with manufacturers who produce vehicles at price points tens of thousands of dollars higher."

Aaronson says his used car dealership in Yonkers, N.Y. stocks more Hondas than any other make because of their famous ability to stand the test of time. It brings many loyal Honda buyers through his doors again and again.

The full 2011 study has just been released and is available on the J.D. Power & Associates website.
