I'm not much for surveys, but they do tell you "something". And I know that there are people that love to hate these things. Nevertheless, I found this one interesting, as it looks at the vehicles at the 3 year point. (One more often hears of the IQS, or Initial Quality Study which looks at the first 90 days.) So these were 2002 models. PP100 is Problems Per 100 vehicles.

I suspect this post will spark some dialog. :)

problems per vehicle is useless information. i'd say the average porsche driver is not pumping out 30,000 miles per year. how about problems per 100,000 miles....er we better make it per 40,000 for the lesser makes to even make the chart.....
