Honda was one of the top non-luxury brands in J.D. Power and Associate’s 2013 Initial Quality Study.
The study is based on customer responses after 90 days of ownership. When you remove the luxury brands, Honda was among the top 5 vehicles in Initial Quality, their score of 103 is much higher than the industry average.
