“If you were given the chance to do it all over again, would you purchase the same car you are currently using?”
That is what Consumer Reports asked people for its yearly car owner satisfaction survey.
There are so many ways to evaluate whether a car is right for you, from taking it for a test drive to tallying every cost. Buying the right car will involve a significant amount of research since you will look at the driving experience, value, comfort, audio system, styling, climate systems, and more.
But who can better review a particular car than the person who’s actually using it?
Here are the most satisfying cars according to car owner’s satisfaction rating:
