J.D. Power recently published its 2021 Initial Quality Study (IQS) with Ram, Dodge, Lexus, Mitsubishi and Nissan making up the top 5, but which brands ranked at the bottom?

Just so you know, the IQS considers the number of problems per 100 vehicles based on the responses from more than 110,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2021 model-year vehicles who were surveyed after 90 days of ownership.

Overall, mass-market brands continue to outperform premium brands, mostly because the latter tend to equip their vehicles with more and more complex technology, which can cause problems for some owners. 

Check out the top 10 brands with the lowest initial quality in 2021 according to J.D. Power. Some of them might surprise you.
