Hyundai, Genesis, And Kia Score 1-2-3 Finish In Quality Study

Industry News

Maybe now we can stop hearing about how Korean cars are "junky?"

It seems no matter how well a car from Hyundai, Kia, or Genesis does in one of our reviews, we always see comments that read "yeah, but it's still a Kia," or "I'd never buy a Korean car."

The three Korean automakers have been on a mission with cars like the Stinger, K900, G70, and new Veloster, to show that the days of "junky" cars is a long-forgotten memory. That mission has been a successful one.

The Korean brand then repeated its first place finish ahead of Hyundai's Genesis luxury brand and Porsche. In 2018, the Hyundai Motor Group has done something miraculous by finishing in the top three of this year's initial quality study. Genesis finished in the number one spot, with 68 problems per 100 vehicles. Kia and Hyundai finished second and third with 72 and 74 problems per 100 vehicles respectively. For comparison, the industry average is 93 problems per 100 vehicles.
