The 2015 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study named the Kia Sorento the best midsize SUV and the Kia Soul the best compact multi-purpose vehicle on the market. This is the third year in a row Kia’s ratings have improved, increasing by 20% this year from 2014.

The J.D. Power Initial Quality Study measures the problems users find in their vehicles in the first 90 days. The survey is extensive, collecting data from 84 thousand car owners who answered over 200 questions. Kia owners had fewer problems with their vehicles than almost any other brand, and J.D. Power found Kia to be the second highest scoring brand in the entire industry.

Kia vice president Michael Sprague said the report “leaves no doubt that Kia builds world-class vehicles,” and Kia is glad to have this feedback from its customer base.

Carriage Kia is proud to provide these award winning, best-in-class vehicles to our buyers. We hope you’ll stop in to check out one of our Sorentos or Souls, or any of the other excellent models in the Kia lineup.
