“This is the third time in four years that Chrysler Town & Country leads the Minivan segment in this quality survey,” said Doug Betts, Senior Vice President, Quality, Chrysler Group LLC. “It reflects the commitment of employees who develop, build and test these vehicles and their recognition that every employee has a role in continually improving the quality of our products.”

Betts added, “While the Dodge Challenger’s legendary performance and style initially attracts shoppers to the car, its quality has a direct impact on loyalty and owners’ willingness to recommend Dodge to their friends and family. Challenger buyers happen to be some of our most passionate and enthusiastic owners so this is a significant benefit to the brand.”
