Buyers of new cars and trucks reported more problems with their vehicles for the second-straight year, according to the annual J.D. Power U.S. Initial Quality Study.
Overall, the initial quality survey found an average 116 problems per 100 vehicles. That's up slightly from last year when the survey found 113 problems per 100 vehicles.
Some of the biggest headaches resulted from the latest high-tech gadgetry that's become a must on today's new vehicles. But the report also suggests that the harsh weather that plagued much of the country over the last year has contributed to some of the problems, especially when it comes to engine and climate control systems.
