Big Three Narrow Quality Gap: U.S. auto makers continue to close the quality gap with Japanese companies, according to a study by the research firm J.D. Power & Associates in Agoura Hills.

Japanese cars still have fewer problems in the first 90 days of ownership, but the gap narrows considerably when defects are compared after five years, the study said.
