Power and Associates Initial Quality Study. In addition, the study named GM's Lansing Grand River assembly plant the high-ranking assembly plant in North and South America for initial quality. Lansing Grand River also was ranked the world's third best plant in the annual study. Overall, the world's largest automaker registered a 10 percent improvement in initial quality. GM's Lansing Grand River, Mich. assembly plant received the prestigious Gold Plant Award, while GM's Detroit-Hamtramck, Mich. assembly plant received the Silver Plant Award, taking second place for initial quality in the Americas. I usually hate these reports, as most are opinionated......but this is actually based on fact. Acura dropped alot from last year, as well as nissan, they are down the shitter. Mercedes and Audi were at the bottom last year, but came up, as well as Jag. Hummer and Porsche remain some of the most unreliable cars out there lol. Keep in mind this is only after 3 months. Every now and then they have a 5 year quality report, and I recall the cars at the top were cadillac, nissan, toyota, lexus, infiniti, and honda (out of order). Chevy was above avg, and BMW was the best of the german ones.
