It appears automakers are listening to consumers according to the most recent J.D. Power 2017 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) study.

While the study notes positive gains came across the board, it also notes that  manufacturers are making the highest quality vehicles to date and many of the APEAL top performers improved over the 2016 APEAL study.

Porsche was the top performer in overall APEAL for the 13th consecutive year with Chrysler being the most improved brand.
