Jeep, Dodge, Fiat all did rather poorly which is upsetting as I rather like some of their products.

BMW isn't particularly known for their quality. My E60 5 series has been a relatively sour experience (although it drives great!) and I won't be getting another BMW anytime soon. My Hyundai on the other hand (a 2011 Genesis Coupe) has been surprisingly trouble free.

This study looks at the first 90 days of ownership. How is that enough time to evaluate a car? Any problem would be an inconvinience at best because it should be covered by a warranty. and I am sure they didn't distinguish between types of problems (e.g. an engine failing vs a plastic seat piece breaking off)

Exactly, its a totally worthless study.

They tend to do 90 day initial quality studies and long term studies to follow up.

Far from it. Attention to the small details actually is fairly informative of quality. I still don't know that I'd buy a Jaguar, but it's at least some indication that they're moving in the right direction.

Usually for most things including appliances, electronics, and so forth including automobiles quality problems at least related to production/manufacturing tend to show up in the first few months of use. The longer you go without problems is a good indication things will be fine. This is one reason why so many are against those extended warranty schemes.

I've never put much stock in the initial quality surveys. A new car, whether it's from Porsche or Kia, is going to look the nicest, have no/few squeaks or rattles, and few problems when new.

It's after you drive a car for several thousand miles and the car actually gets used that issues start to pop up and differences in quality become very apparent. Our old Hyundai we had did great for 3 years... after that it started going downhill quick. More expensive cars we have still look good being 10 years old.
