Actually GM is number one.
Something's not right. The headline you link to says #1, but the article states the same as the OP above, GMC #2, Chevy #5

JD Power ranks Porsche #1, GMC #2 and Chevy #5!

And I am not kidding! JD Powers Nameplate IQS is out and it has Chevrolet at #5. That is amazing! How in the world...
And the bottom 5 are Mini, Nissan, Mitsubushi, Fiat and Scion is dead last. Not an American brand at the bottom. When was the last time that happened? I am not asking that rhetorically, I just assumed Chrysler or Jeep would be in the bottom 5 but Chrysler is above the median and Jeep isn't too far from the middle of the pack.

In other recent good news for Chevy, the Impala scored second places in a five car comparison test by Motor Trend (July '13 issue) and in a six car comparison test by Car and Driver (July '13 issue). It's been a long time since the Impala has been competitive in its class. Hopefully the revamped 2014 Malibu will also improve its standing.

That's the overall company rating -- GM, Ford, Toyota, Nissan, etc -- and includes the divisions of the company -- Toyota, Lexus, Scion. Toyota has Lexus ranked high but Scion very low.
Thanks for the clarification, DonC. I have edited the post title to match.

I filled out the JD Powers survey, definitely. It was long! And I gave the Volt high marks, although I was critical in the appropriate areas (rear view, thick pillars etc)
