Article by Anita Panait, on November 7, 2013

A brand by GAC Motor scored above average in a recent quality survey by market-research firm JD Power & Associates. GAC Motor, which offerings vehicles under the brand Trumpchi, only logged 97 problems per 100 newly sold vehicles -- better than the average 119 problems per 100 newly sold units.

Trumpchi's score is also better than those of General Motors Co.'s Buick and Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan and Honda. A lower score in the survey points to higher quality, and a score over 100 indicates multiple problems per vehicle. Three more Chinese brands -- Venucia, Roewe and Luxgen -- also logged survey scores of above average. In 2012, no Chinese brands performed better than the industry average.

Venucia is a brand developed by a Chinese joint venture of Nissan for the local market.  Roewe is a brand SAIC Motor Corp started with technologies it acquired British carmaker Rover.

Mei Songlin, J.D Power's China vice president, said in a statement that the Chinese domestic brands managed to achieve tremendous improvement in vehicle quality in 2013. Chinese carmakers like SAIC Motor Corp, GAC Motor and FAW Car Co Ltd. have intensified efforts to develop their own brands employing technologies and skills learned or acquired from foreign carmakers.
