These Are The Most Satisfying Car Brands To Own

Consumer Reports

A list of the least satisfying cars on the market is also included.

Every year, Consumer Reports publishes its list of the brands with the highest consumer satisfaction. Last year, Tesla came in first place, with Porsche coming in second. This year, Tesla dominated the list once again in both the brand and individual model categories. The scores are meant to measure whether consumers say that they would buy the same exact model again after owning the car for three years. The results are tallied to choose the brands with the most satisfied owners in the industry.

This year, the top five satisfying brands includes Tesla, Porsche, Genesis, Chrysler and Audi. We were a bit surprised to see Chrysler ranked so high, but CR discusses their rankings and industry trends in this video.

After the top five, the list goes as follows: Mazda, Subaru, Toyota, Honda, Lincoln, Mini, Ram, Kia, Chevrolet, BMW, GMC, Ford, Lexus, Volvo, Dodge, Jeep, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Hyundai, Buick, Cadillac, Infiniti, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Acura. Among the most satisfying models to own, the list includes the Tesla Model S, Porsche 911, Chevrolet Corvette, Lincoln Continental, Ford F-350, Mazda MX-5, Toyota Prius, Tesla Model X, Honda Odyssey and Dodge Challenger. Perhaps not surprisingly, most of the list is dominated by sports cars that have high brand loyalty.

Finally, the list of least satisfying car models includes the Dodge Grand Caravan, Fiat 500, Ford Transit Connect, Infiniti QX60, Dodge Journey, Nissan Versa, Chevy Trax, Acura ILX, Nissan Sentra, and Mercedes GLA.
