DETROIT —

Porsche is the top performer in an annual survey of new vehicle quality.

J.D. Power questioned more than 83,000 U.S. car owners about problems with their 2013 vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership.

In the results released Wednesday, Porsche, GMC, Lexus, Infiniti and Chevrolet owners reported the fewest problems. The worst performing brands were Scion, Fiat, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Mini.

The top complaints this year involved voice recognition systems that didn't understand commands and Bluetooth systems that didn't connect to drivers' phones. Wind noise was also a big complaint.

Honda had the top-performing small car and small SUV, with the Honda Civic and Honda CR-V. The highest-ranking midsize car was the Toyota Camry.

Chevrolet had the best pickups, with the Avalanche and Silverado.
