Knowing how much you might like—or even love—your next vehicle would be a pretty valuable insight as you go about researching your next car purchase. But at a time when a global chip shortage is making finding vehicles to test drive is a challenge—let alone buy—how will you know if you like something without driving it extensively?

To help with that problem, Consumer Reports asks members each year about their car purchases. They provide great insights by answering one question: If you had it to do all over again, would you definitely buy or lease the same model?

Combined with CR’s test and reliability ratings, our owner satisfaction ratings give you valuable guidance when you’re shopping for a vehicle. (Detailed information is available on our car model pages.)

More on New Car Satisfaction and Reliability

Below, we’ve ranked the all-electric cars and SUVs, along with the hybrids and plug-ins, in terms of overall satisfaction, based on our latest survey. We also noted how those top-scorers performed in five categories: styling, driving experience, comfort, value, and in-car electronics ease of use. In the event of a tie, the two or three models are listed.

If you’re a CR member, the list below is already available to you. Members can also click on each model to see how satisfied owners are with the vehicle in several specific aspects of their car ownership experience, such as comfort, driving enjoyment, ease of use of the in-car electronics, and overall value.
