Nissan and Toyota are both Japanese automakers that cater to non-luxury markets. While Kwaishinsha Motor Car Works, Nissan’s predecessor, started manufacturing cars all the way back in 1911, Toyota has only been doing it since 1933. In addition to a longer production history, Nissan outranks Toyota in terms of customer service satisfaction ratings. Per JD Power, a global leader in automotive market research, Nissan scores 813 out of 1,000 on the Customer Service Index, whereas Toyota only scores 809.
Nissan also stacks up well against Honda, another Japanese car company. For the 2015-2016 year, Nissan had 38 active model lines on the market, whereas Honda had a mere 17. And, according to a JD Power Initial Quality Study, Nissan owners only reported 101 problems per 100 vehicles in the first 90 days of new-vehicle ownership. Unfortunately, Honda customers experienced 119 such problems in the same period.
Nissan drivers got an 80 on the American Customer Satisfaction Index, but Kia drivers only got a 79. This is just one instance of Nissan outranking the Korean manufacturer on well-renowned consumer reports. Nissan also equips more vehicles with standard Bluetooth® connectivity, navigation software, and post-collision safety systems. Finally, on average, their cars deliver 64 more horsepower and 25 more lb-ft of torque than Kia’s.
