Porsche tops in annual survey of vehicle quality

Porsche is the top performer in an annual survey of new vehicle quality.
J.D. Power questioned more than 83,000 U.S. car owners about problems with their 2013 vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership.
In the results released Wednesday, Porsche, GMC, Lexus, Infiniti and Chevrolet owners reported the fewest problems. The worst performing brands were Scion, Fiat, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Mini.
The top complaints this year involved voice recognition systems that didn't understand commands and Bluetooth systems that didn't connect to drivers' phones. Wind noise was also a big complaint.
Honda had the top-performing small car and small SUV, with the Honda Civic and Honda CR-V. The highest-ranking midsize car was the Toyota Camry.
Chevrolet had the best pickups, with the Avalanche and Silverado.
Rankings by brand (problems per 100 vehicles and how much they moved up or down in the rankings from last year.)
1. Porsche (80, +2)
2. GMC (90, +10)
3. Lexus (94, -2)

Interesting. Two observations.
1. Porsche's performance appears significantly ahead of the pack.
2. Don't you know the executives are kicking themselves for rushing voice recognition into production as a selling point to the "new car buyer" only to have it turn around and bite them in this type of survey because it couldn't recognize Bubba's southern drawl.

I love my SLK but it doesn't feel nearly as sporty as my 911. The build quality is also better with the Porsche. Porsche engines are nearly bullet proof.
