[THE INVESTOR] South Korea’s largest automaker Hyundai Motor slipped down in the US ranking of cars that measures the overall satisfaction of owning and driving cars.

Hyundai Motor ranked ninth, down from second last year, among non-premium brands on the J.D. Power’s Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study, released on July 27. 

The result is based on responses from more than 80,000 purchaser and lessees of new vehicles who assessed the performance and design after 90 days of ownership.

Meanwhile, Hyundai Motor’s smaller affiliate Kia Motors nabbed the second place on the list, up from the seventh a year earlier.

Among non-premium brands, Volkswagen ranked the first, followed by Mini.
