Report: Dodge Challenger Tops Consumer Reports Owner Satisfaction Survey

Report: Dodge Challenger Tops Consumer Reports Owner Satisfaction Survey

Consumer Reports has just released some details of its Annual Auto Survey and the top ranked car for owner satisfaction is none other than the Dodge Challenger. According to the survey an amazing 92 percent of Challenger owners said they would purchase the car again. The Challenger unseats the Toyota Prius at the top-ranked car.

Taking second place at 91 percent is a hybrid, but it’s not the Prius. Instead it’s Ford’s new Fusion Hybrid.

Other top-ten finishers are perennial favorites like the Chevrolet Corvette and Porsche 911. The Acura TL AWD also rated highly.

The Consumer Reports Owner Satisfaction list is based on more than 380,000 responses from Consumer Reports and subscribers for vehicles from 2007 to 2010. For a vehicle to make the top list at least 80 percent of a model’s owners must answer “definitely yes” when asked: “Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, com-fort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had it to do all over again?”

At the opposite side of spectrum, Consumer Reports also lists the vehicles that owners rate as the least satisfactory, meaning that less than half of the owners would buy the car again. The worst rated car was the 4-cylinder Chrysler Sebring (surprise, surprise), with just 37 percent voting favorably. The Dodge Nitro and Pontiac Torrent FWD also rated at the bottom of the list. In total, of the 10 vehicles that rated the lowest, three were Chrysler products and seven were GM products.
