Chinese carmakers narrow quality gap, Reuters says

China’s state-owned GAC Motor beat the industry average in a recent quality survey, as domestic brands narrowed the gap with foreign marques that dominate the world’s biggest car market, Reuters reported Thursday. GAC Motor, which sells cars under its own brand Trumpchi, had 97 problems per 100 newly sold vehicles in a survey released by market research firm J.D. Power & Associates. That’s better than the average 119 problems and beat global names such as General Motors Co.’s Buick and Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan and Honda, according to the news agency. A lower score indicates higher quality, with a score over 100 showing multiple problems per vehicle. Three other Chinese brands — Venucia, Roewe and Luxgen — also fared better than the industry average, the report added.
