Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

"Great power for towing. Duramax diesel is awesome. Great torque at low speed and hauling over mountain passes is a breeze."

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"I purchased this truck when GM was in receivership so the price was lower than I have seen for a truck like this than any time in the past 15 years. A similar truck today would be almost double what I paid and I could not justify spending that much on a similar new truck today. So I have had great value from my purchase but the circumstances are not likely to repeat anytime soon."

"Vehicle seems to be self destructing started when it was about 7 years old, always seems to be something. rusting out from inside out over fender area.unlikely I will purchase another American made auto"

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
