Toyota has six vehicles in 2014 JD Power seat quality study

Article by Christian A., on August 20, 2014

Six of the 21 vehicles recognized for superior seating in this year’s edition of J.D. Power’s annual Seat Quality and Satisfaction Study were from Toyota Motor Corp. Coming back to the list were the Toyota 4Runner and Lexus RX, joined by the Tacoma, Tundra and Sequoia. The seat quality study assesses seating for carmakers and their suppliers and identifies three vehicles in each of seven vehicle segments.

The three vehicles having the least problems per 100 vehicles were included in the individual segment list. The seats on the Tacoma and Tundra were supplied by Avanzar Interior Technologies Ltd., while seating in the Scion iQ were made by Toyota Boshoku Corp.

Seats in the iQ were recognized for excellent seating in the compact car segment. J.D. Power’s annual Seat Quality and Satisfaction Study had new-vehicle owners to rate the quality of their vehicle seats and seat belts by having them identify defects, malfunctions or design issues encountered during the first 90 days of ownership.

Respondents were over 86,000 purchasers and lessees of MY2014 cars and light trucks. The Range Rover Evoque, Porsche Cayenne and Ford F-250/F-350 Super Duty were also commended in the study, earning additional segment awards for Johnson Controls.

The Ford C-Max and Porsche Panamera also were praised for quality seating, giving Magna International Inc. the No. 1 spot in the compact SUV/crossover segment. The C-Max posted an average of 1.6 seat-related problems per 100 vehicles.

Bridgewater Interiors earned the top spot in the midsize/large SUV segment for the seating in the Honda Pilot, while Lear Corp. ranked first in the midsize/large car segment for the seating in the Buick Regal. The Hyundai Seat Division came out on top of the compact car segment for the seating in the Hyundai Elantra.
