The Toyota Camry has been the best-selling car in America for 15 of the last 16 years, due to its reputation for quality. That reputation was recently upheld by J.D. Power and Associates, which named the Camry best in its class in its annual Initial Quality Study .
According to the J.D. Power 2013 Initial Quality Study, the Toyota Camry in Tacoma received the highest rating in the Midsize Car category. This means that on average, the Camry had fewer owner-reported problems in the first 90 days of new-vehicle ownership than any of its competitors in the segment. Prestige Toyota has a large inventory of Toyota vehicles that includes the award-winning Camry, providing customers who are looking for a reliable sedan with some of the best options available.
The 2013 Camry adds the IQS Best in Class recognition to its growing list of accolades for this year, which already includes IntelliChoice Smart Choice Awards for Fuel Costs, Operating Costs, and Retained Value. The Camry was also recognized as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. According to this year’s registration data from R. L. Polk & Co., over 90% of all Camrys sold over the last ten years are still on the road today.
“The Camry has been well-respected as a high-quality vehicle for over 30 years. So when it wins an award like this, it isn’t a big surprise to us,” said Steve Reedy, general sales manager at Prestige Toyota. “Our customers have always loved the Camry because of its comfort, versatility, and dependability. It’s a great family car with a ton of modern safety features, and its outstanding gas mileage makes it perfect for summer vacations.”
J.D. Power’s 2013 IQS was based on survey responses from more than 83,000 buyers of new 2013 model-year cars, trucks, vans and SUVs. Participants were surveyed after 90 days of ownership. Each vehicle’s score was based not only on problems that caused a complete breakdown or malfunction, but also on instances where controls or features worked as designed, but were rated as difficult to use and understand.
