Power Initial Quality Study, finishing in fourth place among the 15 assessed companies. The 2020 IQS marks the first time that FCA performed ahead of the industry average with its reported problems coming in at 10 less than its nearest competitor and 13 less than J.D. Power’s set industry average.  

“These results reflect the relentless, whatever-it-takes attitude of our team,” said Mark Champine, Head of Quality, FCA – North America. “Our complete focus is the customer and these outcomes reinforce that we are on target.
