Chevy Volt Tops Consumer Reports Owner Satisfaction Ranking

Chevy Volt Tops Consumer Reports Owner Satisfaction Ranking

For the second consecutive year, the Chevrolet Volt takes the top spot on Consumer Reports annual owner satisfaction survey. 

The survey asks owners only one question: “Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would they get their same vehicle if they had it to do all over again?”

Many fuel-efficient vehicles scored high on the list, but the Volt took top honors, with 92 percent of owners saying that they would definitely buy a Volt again. Other gas sippers that scored among the top were the Toyota Camry Hybrid, Prius, Prius C, and the all-electric Nissan Leaf.

Fuel efficiency, sporty driving characteristics and luxury interiors seem to be three factors that customer like the most, considering the results of the survey. While the Volt had the highest score, it only edged the Chevy Corvette and Porsche 911 by one point. Two other sports cars found there way into the top ten as well, the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger.

Among luxury cars, the Audi A7 ranked the highest with the Lexus GS and Audi A6 rounding out the top three.

For trucks, the heavy duties got more love than the half tons, with the Chevy Silverado 2500 diesel, GMC Sierra 2500, and Ford F-250 comprising the top three.

On the low end of the survey is the Nissan Sentra, scoring the worst among the group. Other vehicles that came in on the bottom of the list include the V6 versions of the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, the Nissan Armada, Suzuki SX4, and the Mitsubishi Outlander.

  • This is the best car I’ve ever own and drove in. I absolutely love it.
