Genesis Brand Shines in 2018 J.D. Power APEAL Study

Each year J.D. Power releases the U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study that highlights automotive industry ratings. The average industry score and individual scores of popular makes are featured in the results. The study's purpose is gauging how satisfied customers are in their new vehicles at the post-purchase, 90-day mark.

Overall industry satisfaction increased its score by an interval of 10 compared to 2017 for a total of 820 out of 1,000. This signifies that automotive manufacturers are succeeding in keeping vehicle shoppers content in cities like Dallas and Irving.

Within the APEAL study, brands are judged on 10 categories including engine/transmission; fuel economy; seating; storage and space; vehicle exterior; safety and visibility; heating, ventilation and air conditioning; vehicle interior; audio/communication/entertainment/navigation; and driving dynamics.

Among the brands that ranked highest in the study, Genesis stole the show. For the first time in its history, Genesis found itself as the make with the highest score. The brand drove away with a score of 884 out of 1,000, which beat other top brands in its class like Porsche, BMW, Lincoln and Mercedes-Benz. This is a huge success after its second-place finish in 2017.

This honor displays how valuable, capable and well-rounded Genesis sedans are for drivers who choose to drive one in Arlington or Grand Prairie, TX. The 2018 ranking is one more reason Bob Stallings Genesis takes pride in offering these luxury sedans to customers in Carrollton - just 30 minutes away.
