Ford Beats Toyota in Quality
How can this be? Have we been transported to some weird kind of parallel universe, like Bizarro World in the old Superman comics? Was there some kind of fix, was somebody paid off? Has the world gone mad?
Nope. Ford won fair and square. J.D. Power collected data from 97,000 purchasers and lessees and that’s how it went down. Now, before we get too crazy here, it’s worth noting that Toyota slipped only to No. 2 in terms of models represented, and by the barest of margins. And Ford in aggregate (that is, everything they make, not just the five models that took honors), could only manage 10th. Toyota is tied for 6th on that list, by the way, and here’s the whole list:
But, still, Ford has every right to be proud of what they’ve accomplished. And the news could not have come at a more opportune time for Ford, considering that every month brings a steady drumbeat of bad news for the beleaguered automaker. Hopefully, this will help Ford sell more cars in the next six months and maybe they can finish out the year with some respectable sales numbers, because they deserve at least a little bump in sales after the all the hard work it took to achieve these results.
