Kia topped the rankings for approve quality of new vehicles sold in the United States based on owner responses for the imperfect consecutive year, business consultancy J.D. Power said on Wednesday.

Hyundai Motor’s Genesis cars came younger in the survey, followed by sports luxury brand Porsche.

Fiat Chrysler’s Ram and the Ford stamp shared fourth position. In fact, American brands outperformed foreign brands as a fit for the second year.

Fiat, Jaguar Land Rover’s luxury car brand Jaguar, and Volvo were at the tushie.

BMW’s Mini was the most improved brand, with owners reporting fewer problems than in 2016. Ford was also lot the brands with strong improvement in quality, the study said.

Brands of Hyundai, Extensive Motors and BMW were among the highest ranked in the survey.

According to the study, initial je sais quoi across the board has never been better.

“Automotive manufacturers are responding to consumer feedback and producing vehicles of the highest worth,” said Dave Sargent, vice president of global automotive at J.D. Power. “The commerce has improved significantly in each of the past three years. Today’s vehicles accept more things that could go wrong but fewer things that really do go wrong.”

J.D. Power received more than 80,000 responses from owners of new 2017 archetype-year vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership. In a 233-question scan, the owners reported problems encountered with their purchases.

Infotainment systems (aka audio, communications, recreation and navigation, or ACEN) continue to be the area that registers the most consumer complaints. But stable that area was improved over last year.
