The 2016 Initial Quality Study is based on responses from more than 80,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2016 model-year vehicles who were surveyed after 90 days of ownership. The study uses a 233 question survey that is designed to provide manufacturers with information to discover any issues or problems to drive product improvement. Frank Ferrara, executive vice president, customer satisfaction, Hyundai Motor America, had this to say about the honor:

We take the improvement of quality on our existing models seriously, and also launch new vehicles with the highest quality right out of the gate.
