Indian and Chinese car companies have a long way to go before they stand up to International standards.

By the way I don't understand people saying "TATA cars are suited for Indian conditions". The conditions are horrible in India and if they are more reliable here they should do better in better conditions. They are supposed to sell better cars abroad. So they really suck big time everywhere.

This article doesnt do justice at all

They are comparing Tata Car while BMW being number 1
JD Power forgot that BMW costs 10 times more.

Porsche continued to dominate the overall study, finishing first among brands for the eighth consecutive year.

On a brand level, luxury brands captured 13 of the top 14 positions, led by Porsche, Jaguar and BMW. The four mass-market brands that finished above industry average are Volkswagen, Ram, Ford and Chrysler.

The annual APEAL study examines how gratifying a new vehicle is to own and drive, based on owner evaluations of more than 80 vehicle attributes.

The huge strides made in the International and Indian Car Scene in the last 15 years are really worth considering.

Tata and Mahindra have definitely done a very good job with each successive generation of their vehicles.

However, we do still have a long way to in terms of "consistency, quality, fit, finish, finesse and most definitely in ergonomic design as well as electronics.

Vehicles manufactured by Tata and Mahindra will always find a market in India and possibly other developing countries because of the pricing as well as the fact that there are relatively less choices available in their respective segments - in comparison with say a highly developed market like the US or Western Europe.

All this JD Power stuff etc, at best, are indicators. I don't think we should read too much into them.

Possibly TBHP can get a survey done about all the makes of cars sold in India by asking members who own them to rate each car basis specific parameters.

This may be a better source of "true" information than others!
